DENVER – Ericsson is partnering with Liberty Latin America Ltd. ("Liberty Latin America" or "LLA") in a major upgrade of its mobile core network and to accelerate its journey towards new technologies in the Caribbean and Latin America. The communications services provider has chosen Ericsson as its sole mobile core network vendor in a major network modernization drive.
The three-year deal will see Ericsson deploying state-of-the-art, virtualized and cloud-based mobile core network solutions to serve the regional Liberty Latin America market under a virtualized mobile core consolidation project.
