China Mobile expands Huawei contract

The rapidly expanding Huawei has won a contract with China Mobile to expand its GSM contract to provide mobile softswitch with a 30 million subscriber-capacity and more than 30 thousand TRXs in the second half of this year.

In a statement, China Mobile said it selected Huawei over numerous competitors because of “its strength in providing advanced technologies”.

The pair cooperated previously on the world’s first 3GPP R4 mobile softswitch network.

According to the contract, Huawei will provide the EnerG GSM solution designed by 3G technology to help China Mobile maximize its profits by lowering network construction costs. The company will also provide its new generation GSM dual density BTS which, it claims, can increase coverage by 20 per cent while saving 20 per cent in power consumption.
