The deal covers the rollout of 2G, 3G and 4G technologies, as well as installation, operational support, hardware and software support, and maintenance. Ericsson will offer multi-standard RBS6000 family of base stations as part of this agreement.

This agreement will enable us to deliver a high quality customer experience and secure the most efficient networks possible for Telenor's Business Units. We are already co-operating on radio projects in Myanmar, Thailand and India and we are confident that the work we are doing together will provide a richer, more stable experience for our customers and contribute to the success of our 'Internet for All' strategy."
The Ericsson RBS6000 radio base station can operate on all standards - GSM, WCDMA and LTE - and offers a seamless, integrated and environmentally friendly solution that is forward-compatible.
