Vodafone Netherlands hires Ericsson to manage network

Vodafone Netherlands has hired Ericsson to manage services cooperation in the country. As of June 1, Ericsson takes over all engineering, implementation and operational activities in Vodafone Netherlands' multivendor core and transport network.
As a result, 97 Vodafone Netherlands employees will be transferred to Ericsson.
The employees will be located at the office in Stein, in the South Limburg region, from where Ericsson already performs other activities that were taken over from Vodafone Netherlands last year.
John Samarron, CTO of Vodafone Netherlands, says: "Vodafone Netherlands is increasingly evolving from a technically oriented company to customer-services oriented company. By transferring responsibility and existing resources for the core and transport part of the network, we are convinced that we will be able to capture synergies with Ericsson, and that the quality of our core and transport network will be further enhanced. Moreover, the shift to a partnering model allows us to focus on additional elements of the value chain that will enable growth and new product introduction."
