UK-based operator Vodafone has tapped up Korean manufacturer Samsung for a global framework agreement, to deliver 2G, 3G and 4G infrastructure across the Vodafone Group footprint.
The framework agreement supports Vodafone’s organic investment programme, Project Spring, which is designed to accelerate its plans to establish stronger network and service differentiation for its customers. Earlier this week the operator also signed up Ericsson.
Vodafone is making significant investments in its global network infrastructure. As we ll as Project Spring the company’s Carrier Services division recently revealed that it is currently investing heavily in MPLS and by the end of the year will have what it claims is the world’s largest physical MPLS infrastructure.
The firm is also investing on solutions that will run on this infrastructure and the division’s CEO Brian Fitzpatrick told Telecoms.com that Vodafone will also have one of, if not the largest IPX infrastructure in the world, when work is complete.
