STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERICY) has signed an agreement with Türk Telekom, Turkey's biggest fixed operator, to provide microwave transmission, MINI-LINK, for its high-performance broadband service.

The agreement is a full turnkey project for the supply and implementation of more than 1200 units of MINI-LINK, and training and support activities.MINI-LINK will help Türk Telekom to meet demand for voice and data services at lower cost and with increased network control.

With this solution Türk Telekom gains the possibility to provide microwave transmission at 500 different locations in Turkey: 400 in rural areas and 100 locations complementary to the long distance SDH (Synchronous DigitalHierarchy) microwave systems. One of the key targets of the project is to provide transmission for high-performance broadband connections, especially in rural areas.

Jan Kemvall, President Ericsson Turkey, says the MINI-LINK portfolio is the most reliable and cost-efficient system when rolling out broadband connections in rural areas. "With this agreement, we strengthen our position as a wireline supplier in Türk Telekom's network," Kemvall says.

The agreement, over two years, will bring the number of Ericsson MINI-LINK radio systems in Türk Telekom's network to more than 3000.
