PARIS -- Bouygues Telecom, a French mobile operator with more than 8.3 million subscribers, has chosen Ericsson as its partner in the creation of its new WCDMA/HSPA mobile broadband network. Ericsson will provide, install and integrate 50 percent of the equipment required for the complete network, over a period of five years.

Thanks to Ericsson's solutions, Bouygues Telecom's WCDMA/HSPA subscribers will be able to access new multimedia services using the broadband capacity of the network.

Installation of the equipment has already started. Ericsson will be responsible for Bouygues Telecom's two largest geographic regions in terms of traffic: the Greater Paris area and the Rhône-Alpes region. Ericsson was chosen for the scope of its product range and capacity to meet major technical requirements.

Guy Roussel, president of Ericsson France, says: "This contract is Ericsson's first radio equipment agreement in France, and it is a major turning point in the relationship between Bouygues Telecom and Ericsson - a result of our constructive partnership established over the years."
