According to the contract, Orange France and Ericsson will start the roll-out of the core network equipments this year, further ensuring the effective launch of 3G mobile services.

This contract for the UMTS core network equipments and associated integration services demonstrates the trust Orange France has shown in Ericsson's solutions, particularly concerning the 3G mobile infrastructures. This trust is based upon a long and positive working relationship between both companies as Ericsson already supplies to Orange France its GSM and GPRS core networks as well as the MMS platform.

"Our choice naturally turned to Ericsson since their technology ensures the migration of our existing network to the UMTS network, thus allowing us to further offer to Orange's customers innovative and high-quality mobile services," said Ren Le Gal, Chief Technical Officer, Orange France.
