Project Overview

The first four microwave links have been successfully completed, with hundreds more proposed over the project timeline, according to the official release. Ericsson will replace and expand 2degrees' existing microwave network technology with the Mini-Link 6000 microwave solution across sites as part of its network lifecycle refresh.

Microwave technology enables cost-effective and timely mobile coverage, delivering speeds and latency comparable to fiber. Ericsson's Mini-Link portfolio covers the complete microwave spectrum from 5GHz to 80GHz, offering flexibility and scalability for various deployment scenarios.

Partnership Expansion

This agreement extends Ericsson's partnership with 2degrees, which includes modernising the telecommunications provider's Radio Access Network. The goal is to enhance services for both consumer and business customers throughout New Zealand.
