Mobile broadband developments to cut deployment time and costs for operators

Huawei technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has completed video phone and HSDPA 3.6 Mbps services trials on a network in Europe using UMTS 900 MHz and that it plans to continue to conduct multiple UMTS 900 MHz field trials in Australia and Europe.

Huawei's successful trial on UMTS900 MHz indicates that Huawei is making further breakthroughs in the UMTS extended bands field. Huawei is the vendor which supports the most extended HSDPA bands in the industry and Huawei's new generation Node B supports UMTS 850 MHz, 900 MHz as well as AWS frequencies of 1700 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz and 2100 MHz.

Huawei's UMTS 900 MHz solutions completely re-use the existing GSM 900 MHz's frequencies and infrastructures including base station cabinets, antenna lines and power feeders, causing a reduction in CAPEX and enabling the provision of wireless broadband services.

"We are glad to complete the Interoperability Testing (IOT) successfully on UMTS 900 MHz which will save both deployment time and investment time for operators." commented Hou Jinlong, vice president of Huawei wireless product line. "Huawei's successful trial of HSDPA 3.6 Mbps video services on UMTS 900 MHz spectrum shows Huawei's UMTS/HSPA is an industry leader in the mobile broadband field and committed to developing innovative solutions that create maximum value for our customers."

To date Huawei has secured 35 commercial Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) contracts and established strategic partnerships with 28 of the world's top 50 operators including Vodafone, Telefnica, France Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, KPN, Etisalat, China Mobile and China Unicom. Through focusing on customers' challenges, promoting the quality of networks and reducing the construction and maintenance costs with innovative solutions, Huawei has been recognized and accepted by mobile operators all over the world.
