STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has been chosen as preferred supplier by leading Mozambican operator mcel to upgrade and expand its existing 3G radio network in Maputo, Mozambique's capital city, using the latest Ericsson technology. This includes the RBS 6000, which earlier this year was used in setting the record for the fastest internet in the world.

This contract builds on Ericsson's longstanding relationship with mcel and comes on the heels of a recently completed upgrade of mcel's 3G core network by Ericsson. The network upgrade will enable mcel to provide high-speed mobile broadband which can deliver video and web application services, thereby offering their subscribers a superior user experience.

The core network solutions include Ericsson's Mobile Softswitch Solution and Ericsson SmartEdge-based Mobile Packet Backbone Network (MPBN) solution which efficiently handle the take off of voice and data.
