Ericsson, Telma Team Up To Modernize Madagascar’s Mobile Network



Ericsson and Telma, a national telecom provider in Madagascar, have signed a commercial contract to upgrade the operator’s mobile broadband network preparing it for a 5G rollout and for the launch across Madagascar.


The agreement was signed by Telma CEO, Patrick Pisal Hamida and Nora Wahby, Head of Ericsson West Africa & Morocco.


Under the agreement, Ericsson will provide core network expansion, optimization services, and a software upgrade service for both the core and the radio access network, to provide more capacity and peak throughput that will enhance the mobile experience for Telma customers.


The solution comprises the latest radio access and transport products from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio, including the MINI-LINK 6600, for a 5G-ready backhaul. Ericsson will also deliver enhanced business support systems and a virtualized core solution supporting Voice over LTE and Voice over Wi-Fi services.  


With greater capacity, higher data speeds and reduced latency, Telma’s customers will enjoy high-quality online services, including HD video and network games.


Patrick Pisal Hmida, CEO at Telma Telecom Malagasy says, “At Telma, we seek to deliver affordable, high-quality and easy-to-use broadband Internet access and communications services to our customers in Madagascar, and Ericsson is helping us achieve that goal.


“We are very excited to formally announce the enhancement of our mobile broadband and the beginning of 5G roll-out. Telma is focusing on building a network for people on the move who can now be assured a good connection on their phones, tablets and laptops throughout Madagascar.”


Nora Wahby, Head of Ericsson West Africa and Morocco says, “Telma is one of the leading telecommunications companies in Madagascar. Our two companies have a long and successful history of leading the industry in the region with innovative offerings for customers. Under our deepened cooperation, we will continue to pave the way and provide a cutting-edge mobile broadband experience for consumers and accelerate its 5G transformation.”


The network of the future will help redefine what connectivity means to both consumers and businesses. Ericsson will continue to work with Telma to lay the groundwork for a smooth transition to 5G.

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
