"We are excited to partner with Reliance Communications for this strategic multi-technology managed services deal. We have been managing their networks in North and West and are now pleased to extend this support to all 22 circles," Ericsson Executive Vice President and Head of Business Unit (Global Services) Magnus Mandersson said in a statement.
Under the agreement, Ericsson would take over the responsibility for field maintenance, network operations and operational planning of Reliance Communications' 2G, CDMA and 3G mobile networks.
However, the financial details of the deal were not disclosed in the statement.
"We are happy to announce our partnership with Ericsson to manage our wireline and wireless network on a pan-India basis," Reliance Communications' Head of Commercial Suresh Rangachar said.
The agreement also includes operation and management of Reliance Communications' wireline network by Ericsson.
Reliance Communications in late-November launched an unlimited mobile Internet plan for Rs. 999 a month at high speed on its upgraded CDMA network across select cities.
The company also announced it has upgraded its CDMA services to Pro 3 network which will offer about peak download speed of 14.7Mbps compared to 3.1Mbps offered earlier.
The service was launched in Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune and will soon cover other big cities.
"We are delighted to offer the Pro 3 advantage to our customers in these four cities and will launch the same in other key markets, including Delhi and Mumbai, shortly," RCom's Consumer Business Chief Executive Officer Gurdeep Singh had then said in a statement.
