Vodafone Egypt outsources to Ericsson

Ericsson has scored another managed services deal

Vodafone Egypt has signed up Ericsson as its first outsourcing partner, under a three year managed services agreement, to deliver network field maintenance services and improve the quality of its network in the greater Cairo area.

Ericsson is Vodafone Egypt’s incumbent supplier and initial turnkey provider, with a partnership that dates back to 1998 but this agreement is the first of its kind for Vodafone Egypt.

Rafiah Ibrahim, Head of Ericsson Region Middle East, said: “Globally, Ericsson has signed more than 300 managed services contracts in more than 100 countries. By offering managed services to Vodafone Egypt, we aim to improve Vodafone’s network availability and quality through the use of our innovative technologies, enabling the Egyptian community to advance into the Networked Society future where everything that can benefit from connectivity will be connected.”

Vodafone is the leading mobile operator in Egypt by some margin with 42.9 million subscribers at end-June, compared to ECMS with just under 32 million and Etisalat with 23.5 million.
