As part of a multi-year agreement with Rogers Communications Inc., Ericsson will expand its key supplier role with the company by delivering an end-to-end LTE network. Under terms of a recent agreement, the company will deploy all 4G/LTE radio sites with its new RBS 6000 radio base station, and upgrade and expand Rogers’ existing packet core network into an Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network, supporting the new LTE network.

To date, Ericsson has signed commercial LTE contracts with six of seven of the top ranked operators by 2010 global revenue.   

LTE, the next generation of mobile communication technology, enables the fast transfer of huge amounts of data in an efficient and cost-effective way, optimizing the use of the frequency spectrum, the company said in a release.
