MTN, Ericsson extend mobile money deal
Friday, March 1, 2019
MTN and Ericsson have signed a five-year contract extension to deploy new products and provide managed services for mobile money services in 13 countries across Africa and the Middle East.
The new contract includes deployment of the Ericsson Wallet Platform in new markets on top of 13 existing countries.
The deployment of Ericsson’s Wallet Platform brings mobile financial services to MTN customers, the companies say.
The strategic partnership between MTN and Ericsson will ultimately introduce the Ericsson Wallet Platform across the operator’s footprint, they add.
