Swedish networking equipment maker Telefon AB L.M. Ericsson has announced that to meet the increasing demands for telecom management services in China and the world, the company will set up a new global network operating center in China.
The company said that the new global network operating center aims to enhance its managed service delivery range and capacity in China. The new center plans to initially hire 300 employees and the number will increase to 500 within six months.
Ericsson's Chinese service center currently provides services such as customer support, network design and optimization, system integration, network deployment and special activity support. The company said the new operating center will offer fresh blood to its service center in China.
