Clearwire outsources network management to Ericsson to save cash | ZDNet

Clearwire on Wednesday cut a seven-year pact with Ericsson to manage its network in a move that should give the cash-strapped WiMax 4G provider some wiggle room.

Under the pact:

Ericsson manages Clearwire’s 4G network day-to-day.
700 Clearwire employees become Ericsson workers in the middle of 2011.
Ericsson will be responsible for network engineering, operations and maintenance.
Clearwire will still make the calls on network assets and strategy and owns the network.
