Ericsson was selected by Orange Jordan to provide its latest environmental and sustainable solutions to transform Orange Jordan network for better coverage and improved connectivity. Ericsson’s innovative and eco-friendly solutions will enhance Orange Jordan subscribers’ connectivity experience while lowering the energy consumption allowing Orange to reduce the environmental impact.
As part of the agreement, Ericsson will upgrade Orange Jordan’s existing packet core and renew its radio access network by replacing the operator’s old radio base station and introduce Ericsson’s latest RBS 6000 family of base stations. This energy efficient compact solution will allow Orange to develop new, high-speed mobile broadband services while reducing the deployment cost. The Packet Core upgrade includes SGSN on Ericsson Blade System and Ericsson Evolved Packet Gateway on SSR 8000 family to provide the most advanced experience for Orange Jordan subscribers by securing the bandwidth needs of even the most demanding online applications with minimal latency.
