Tuesday, 21 October 2008


Huawei Technologies today announced that it has been selected by Bell Canada to provide network infrastructure for its national overlay of HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) technology to its national EVDO (Evolution Data Optimized) wireless network. The HSPA overlay will also offer Bell an efficient upgrade path forward to LTE (Long Term Evolution), the global Fourth Generation (4G) wireless standard.

The multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement will see Huawei providing Bell with radio access network technology for its new next generation wireless network.

"It is an honour to be selected by Bell in building the company' s next generation wireless network," said Ken Hu, Executive Vice President and Chief of Huawei. "Carriers are looking for long-term partners as they future-proof their wireless network infrastructure. Huawei has globally deployed industry leading UMTS/HSPA technologies as well as taking a leading position in LTE development and we are dedicated to helping Bell enhance its competitiveness in the Canada market."

Stephen Howe, Bell Senior Vice President of Wireless Network and Chief Technology Officer said: "Bell is committed to delivering Canadians the broadest choice in high-speed wireless service now with national 3G service and in future as we prepare to move to LTE. We are proud to work with industry leading technology providers such as Huawei Technologies to make both these objectives a reality."
