10 February 2014 | Sophie Donoghue


Greek operator Wind Hellas has upgraded its core network infrastructure, in partnership with Swedish equipment vendor Ericsson.

The carrier has installed Ericsson’s evolved packet core solutions as part of a year-long network evolution project, in an effort to modernise its mobile packet core.

Ericsson’s solution replaces legacy packet network systems and migrates subscribers to a single multifunctional platform suite. The multifunctional platform can stream all related business operations and processes, allowing Wind to monetise mobile broadband and offer data promotions to enhance users' satisfaction and avoid churn.

"The successful deployment of the Ericsson Evolved Packet Core solution marks another significant milestone in our commitment to remain at the forefront of telecommunications services in the Greek market – with continuous and long-term investments in our network infrastructure,” said Nikos Babalis, CNO at Wind.
