Ericsson has won a five year contract to manage the operations and maintenance of the sites shared by Three and EE through their MBNL joint venture.
The Swedish company will provide the likes of a network operations centre, network performance and optimisation, field support and maintenance. MBNL was formed by Three and T-Mobile in 2007, with Orange joining the JV in 2010.
Graham Payne, managing director of MBNL, said: 'Since the formation of MBNL in 2007 we have achieved a great deal by consolidating a complex network infrastructure to deliver the best network at lowest cost. Ericsson will deliver a further enhancement to the service levels we achieve, and drive continuous service improvement and innovation to further extend our lead in positive customer experience.'
Valter D'Avino, head of managed services at Ericsson, said: 'Together with MBNL we have covered new ground for managed services over the last 4 years and we are delighted to take this partnership into a new phase, supporting MBNL's vision for the future.'
