New Delhi: Swedish company Ericsson said on Wednesday it has bagged a $1.3 billion contract to expand and upgrade Bharti Airtel's network in 15 of India's 22 telecom circles.

"The agreement will enable Airtel to put in place a converged network and expanded coverage in rural India. Airtel users will enjoy an enhanced voice quality and faster data access," Ericsson said in a statement.

As part of the deal, Ericsson will supply radio base stations, circuit and packet core, microwave transmission and intelligent network.

Ericsson also said it would ensure that Bharti Airtel's core and transport network is 3G-ready so that the mobile operator would be able to roll out the services fast.
