Unitel Angola and Ericsson have signed a three-year agreement for the supply of Radio System solutions as well as core solutions and related services.

The Radio & 5G ready core expansions are expected to enable Unitel to meet increasing data demands of customers in the Angolan market. The agreement sees the expansion of Ericsson’s Packet Core and User Data Consolidation network and readiness for 5G non-standalone services.

Using these solutions, Unitel’s network performance will improve to meet growing end-user expectations.

Meanwhile, expansions on virtual Mobile Switching Centre (MSC) and Ericsson Media Gateway for Mobile Networks (M-MGw) are included for improving voice services, while, Ericsson Network Manager (ENM) will ensure better performance and faster time-to-market for new services.
