Ericsson celebrates Spanish win with big MásMóvil deal

Ericsson announced some positive news for once with the signing of a strategic agreement with MásMóvil to provide a bunch of network evolution and support services.

MásMóvil might only be the fourth Spanish MNO, with four million or so subscribers, but it’s ambitious and a deal is a deal. Ericsson will be providing NFV-based core network evolution, billing, managed services and even some FTTH action to MásMóvil, so while the size of the deal might not be earth-shattering it will certainly provide a good platform for Ericsson to show what it can do.

“In addition to introducing a range of new services for home customers, this agreement makes it possible for MásMóvil to provide innovative and flexible service bundles and billing to enterprises,” said José Antonio López, Head of Ericsson Spain (pictured above, right). “The support services and managed services portions of the contract will ensure that services are delivered with the utmost quality, according to agreed key performance indicators.”

“The strategic agreement with Ericsson is a clear demonstration of our investment character to continue improving and updating our fixed and mobile networks with the unique objective of offering our customers the best telecommunications products and services,” said Meinrad Spenger, CEO of MásMóvil (left).

Until a year ago MásMóvil was a relatively unheralded MVNO on the Orange Spain network, then embarked upon an acquisition spree, including the smallest Spanish MNO Yoigo. It is clearly in aggressive expansion mode and also has a nascent fixed line business, so Ericsson should be able to use this strategic agreement as a case study so long as everything goes according to plan.
