Ericsson Secured Network Expansion Contract by XL in Indonesia

Ericsson has been awarded an expansion contract by PT Excelcomindo Pratama Tbk (XL) to expand its GSM/GPRS and WCDMA/HSPA in Indonesia.
Under the agreement, Ericsson will supply both best-in-class 2G and 3G radio access network and MINI-LINK transmission equipment, as well as deployment of its proven Mobile Softswitch Solution. This is a step forward for XL in the evolution to an all-IP network, which is necessary to support the rapid growth and cost-efficiency of network capacity and coverage.
Ericsson will also supply the network deployment and integration, as well as network and technology consulting, such as network performance improvement, network capacity and design, among other services.
This network expansion will extend XL’s footprint and enable it to address the ever-increasing need for mobile communications and broadband services in Indonesia.
Ericsson supported XL in its first introduction of 3G technology and services to Indonesia. This new agreement strengthens its position as a reliable partner for further expansion. 
“High-quality network coverage, bandwidth capacity, innovative products and services are key to our long-term growth and sustainability. We have selected Ericsson because we need a partner who can support us in fulfilling these requirements,” said HasnuSuhaimi, President Director of XL.
“Ericsson has a longstanding relationship with XL and this major contract demonstrates the trust and commitment between the two companies. It showcases Ericsson Indonesia‘s capability to support our customers in all product areas – as well as services – in this high-growth market,” said Bengt Thornberg, President, Ericsson Indonesia.
Ericsson’s relationship with XL began in 1996 when it was first awarded the contract for GSM 900 in Jakarta and surrounding areas, followed by an expansion of the network to the rest of Java, Bali, and Lombok.
