One of Hong Kong’s leading mobile operators, China Mobile Hong Kong, selected Ericsson as the sole supplier to further enhance its converged LTE FDD/TDD and Evolved Packet Core network. The new capabilities will bring more benefits to China Mobile Hong Kong’s subscribers. The network enhancement spans a wide range of capabilities including voice over LTE (VoLTE), Ericsson Charging System, Evolved IP network solution, and Proactive Support Services. These capabilities will further enhance the user experience and optimize the operation of the network.
With the voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology, users will have an improved experience when using their LTE smartphones. The technology enables superior HD voice call quality, instant call-set-up and superfast LTE data services during calls.
Through the Ericsson Charging System solution, users will have greater control of their roaming expenditure and can subscribe to personalized offers. The solution also enables an easy and visual way of creating and testing new services and bundles, shortening the time to market for China Mobile Hong Kong.
Ericsson SSR 8000 Smart Services Routers, used in Evolved Packet Core and Evolved IP network solution, will allow China Mobile Hong Kong to simplify network design and operation.
Sean Lee, Director and CEO of China Mobile Hong Kong, says: “We are committed to offering customers the best user experience. Our business vision, combined with Ericsson’s leadership in radio, IP core networks, Operation and Business Support System and strong system support service, continues to ensure that we are able to provide our customers with a broad selection of customized services with best-in-class service quality. We will continue to work with Ericsson to realize more potential of our LTE network to transform the way our customers live, work and play.”
Jan Signell, Head of Region North East Asia, Ericsson, says: “As a world leader in communications technology and services, and a long standing technology partner to China Mobile Hong Kong, we are proud to power China Mobile Hong Kong’s converged LTE FDD/TDD and Evolved Packet Core network with new mobile technology. China Mobile Hong Kong is now able to offer its customers new services and an improved user experience on their LTE smartphones.”
Ericsson has been the sole supplier of China Mobile Hong Kong’s LTE FDD network, and its network partner for more than 19 years. Ericsson was also selected to expand the operator’s commercial LTE network with TD-LTE (LTE TDD) in Hong Kong.
