Ericsson has signed turnkey contracts to become the total solution provider and prime integrator of Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN) in seven cities across Greece.

Under the agreements, Ericsson will supply and install fibre optic telecommunications networks in Agrinio, Chania, Ermoupolis, Ierapetra, Iraklio, Kozani and Rethymno.

The networks will initially link municipal buildings, such as the general hospital, town hall, schools and universities, providing high-speed broadband services.

In addition to the Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) telecommunications infrastructure, the contract includes switching and WiFi systems.

Ericsson has already started roll out of the systems.
