STOCKHOLM -- After successful pilots with operators in both developed and emerging markets, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has launched Accelerated Network Build, a new solution to accelerate and streamline the network build process for operators to deliver a faster time to market with quicker return on investment.
The new solution delivers the increased speed by cutting build time 50 percent, improved quality by reducing number of site visits by 70 percent and better predictability with 99 percent first-time right delivery. It provides minimal impact to operators' customers during build out or introducing new technologies, while improving coverage and capacity.
Fredrik Jejdling, Head of Business Unit Network Services, Ericsson, says: "Results from the pilots show that Accelerated Network Build makes a difference to our customers. By combining technology innovation, cloud-based tools with streamlined processes, our solution will revolutionize how networks are built and set a new standard in the industry."
Michael Sullivan-Trainor, Executive Analyst at Technology Business Research (TBR) Telecom Practice, says: "Fast time to revenue and reduced cost is a must have right now - it's a pain point for operators that needs to be solved with innovation. New technologies are going to make things even more complex and it's very timely that Ericsson is addressing how to fix the infrastructure deployment model now, both for today and for tomorrow when 5G and the Internet of Things will come."
