True has awarded Ericsson a contract to deploy indoor networks across Thailand using Dual Band Dots to improve indoor connectivity.
True will install the Dots from this month, focusing on the northern, southern, and central regions of Thailand. The first deployments will be in hospitals, shopping malls, and hotels.
The Dual Band Dot, part of the Ericsson Radio Dot System, enables a simple deployment that is fully integrated with the outdoor macro network. The Dual Band Dot combines two frequency bands in one Dot to simplify deployment, reduce cabling costs, and leverage available spectrum. It also supports multi-band deployments and carrier aggregation.
“In-building coverage is very crucial to the success of mobile operators. It not only creates customer satisfaction but also becomes the competitive advantage to differentiate from competitors,” saud Pakpong Akaniwan, chief technology officer of True.
