Ericsson will deliver network field maintenance services and improve the network quality of Vodafone’s Egypt subsidiary after winning a managed services contract.

Vodafone Egypt, which has over 36 million customers, said it had chosen to outsource its network field services for the first time as part of a three-year deal.

In addition, Ericsson will provide a range of technologies to improve the quality of Vodafone’s network in the greater Cairo area.

The two companies said the aim was to achieve operational efficiency and boost network availability.

The deal builds on an existing relationship between the two companies that dates back to 1998.

Vodafone Egypt CTO Osama Said commented: "Ericsson has proved to be a steadfast partner throughout our years of partnership. With this agreement, we aim to achieve world class network quality with the most innovative solutions that best serve our customers' needs."

Financial detail of the deal were not disclosed.

The Sweden-based vendor has over 300 managed services contracts in more than 100 countries.

The deal builds on a seven-year fixed and mobile networks managed services agreement Ericsson signed with Romtelecom and Cosmote in July.

In the second quarter of the year, the company saw revenues from managed services fall four percent year-on-year but rise 13 percent on the previous quarter.
