Ericsson has struck a deal to provide a range of services to Netherlands-based transport company Translink.
The Sweden-based vendor will supply an ordering and billing system, and operate associated applications for Translink as part of a managed services contract.
Translink manages the smart chip cards and associated payments for travel on the metro, trams, buses and trains across the Netherlands.
Its e-ticketing system covers 10 local and national transport operators and handles more than 2.3 billion transactions per year.
Ericsson said its services would enable Translink to introduce new services such as account-based travel and mobile ticketing.
Arco Groothedde, CEO of Trans Link Systems, said: "The ordering and billing solution that Ericsson is providing will bring stability and continuous improvement to our service offerings with a better time to market.
“Furthermore, the solution provided will enable cost-effective operations for Translink."
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
It is part of Ericsson’s drive to move beyond a reliance on telecom operators.
Last week, it backed a new licensing platform to get wireless technology to Internet of Things manufacturers.
Earlier this month, the company unveiled a range of deals with the TV industry, another key focus area.
President and CEO Hans Vestberg left the company in July as part of a restructure designed to help the vendor improve its financial performance.
The company is speeding up cost-cutting plans after sales fell 11 percent in the second quarter.
