Telekom Malaysia International Bangladesh (TMIB, operating under the AKTEL brand) has awarded Swedish technology provider Ericsson a frame agreement to upgrade and expand its EDGE-enabled GSM/GPRS network. Under the contract, Ericsson will install new base stations and mobile softswitch equipment that will enable TMIB to minimise network costs while evolving towards an all-IP network. The vendor will also supply software upgrades to increase capacity and network performance. The upgrade project encompasses more than 1,000 sites in and between Dhaka and Chittagong. AKTEL launched a trial EDGE network in March 2007.
