Japan's Softbank Mobile Selects Ericsson To Build LTE Radio Access Network

Ericsson (ERIC) said that Japan's Softbank Mobile selects the company to build an LTE radio access network that will serve Japan's major cities, home to more than half of the country's population.

Ericsson noted that Video-sharing and streaming in high definition, facilitated mobility and richer multimedia content, enhanced security and improved latency are one of the many advantages that LTE users could enjoy.

The Ericsson network will cover Japan's major cities - Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya - which together account for 70 percent of the country's total data and voice traffic.

Ericsson noted that it will upgrade Softbank Mobile's packet core network, including systems integration and deployment of an Evolved Packet Core (EPC) solution, and build a new LTE radio access network using RBS 6000 multi-standard base stations.
