Melita has partnered with Ericsson for network evolution towards 5G. The Maltese network service provider is modernising its mobile network with 5G-ready multi-standard solutions to ensure better experience for its customers.
As part of the deal, Ericsson will supply the Ericsson Radio System (ERS), while modernising and expanding the virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) which is deployed on Ericsson BSP 8100 and Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment. This will give Melita the flexibility it needs to meet a growing demand for new 5G and IoT use cases.
Simon Montanaro, Chief Technology Officer, Melita, said, “We are committed to providing the residents and businesses of Malta with the best possible mobile connectivity. Our strategic goal is to stay at the forefront of customer experience and Ericsson is the best suited partner to address these requirements.”
