STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson has signed a contract with Dishnet Wireless Limited in India to deploy a complete turnkey GSM/GPRS/EDGE network infrastructure and equipment for the northern and eastern circles in India. The circles account for nearly half of India's population. The contract is to be rolled out over a period of two years.

Under the agreement, Ericsson will provide infrastructure and services for GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Unified Messaging System, MMS, and Intelligent Network.

The GSM network infrastructure will cover circles in northern and eastern India. These circles account for nearly half of country's population and are extremely important to Dishnet Wireless Limited in reaching out to semi urban and rural areas of the country. The current tele-density of 1.4% from these circles offers a great potential for the future and will drive the GSM growth in India.

"Ericsson takes great pride in this opportunity to work with Dishnet Wireless Limited to deliver high network capacity and quality of service to its subscribers," said Jan Campbell, Managing Director, Ericsson India. "With Ericsson's extensive expertise in implementing advanced and future-proof networks, we are fully committed to support Dishnet Wireless Limited in developing a wide-range of mobile communications and data services."
