Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that Tacom, a subsidiary of VimpelCom, has successfully launched its 2G/3G network which was constructed with Huawei's products in Tajikistan.

To choose the vendor for the Tajikistan network, VimpelCom organized a two-step tender, in which all global renowned telecom companies took part. Based on detailed analysis of proposed solutions and vendor's experience in telecom market, Huawei was chosen as the main vendor for the whole Tajikistan network and Huawei's Softswitch as the best realization of operator's requirements.

As a world-leading supplier of telecommunications network solutions, Huawei is the first company to successfully integrate 3GPP R4 technologies into GSM/UMTS network, and deploy unified 2G/3G core networks. On the principle of separating the control layer and bearer layer, Huawei Mobile Softswitch solutions provide large network capacity and excellent processing performance to ensure smooth offering of services. Its IP-based distributed architecture can effectively simplify the network structure, speed up the network deployment, and reduce network transmission cost. Moreover, Huawei Mobile Softswitch solutions can help reduce network construction and maintenance costs significantly. This will protect the carriers' long-term investment, meeting their requirements for rolling out new services.

"Tacom's network is the first experience for VimpelCom to provide commercial 3G services. We are satisfied with Huawei's advanced solutions and professional service. We are willing to build long-term partner relationship with Huawei' Commented by Mr. Victor Pilyugin, Director General of Tacom.
