Huawei strengthens ties with eMobile with HSPA expansion contract

Telecommunication Press Releases Tuesday October 16, 2007 05:11

Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (“Huawei”), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has sealed a network expansion contract with eMobile, following the commercial launch of Japan’s first IP-based HSDPA radio access network for the operator.

Under the new agreement, Huawei will provide eMobile with advanced High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) technologies and expand the network to cover vicinity of Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. More than 2,300 Distributed Node Bs will be deployed, including the indoor Distributed base station system (iDBS) which will provide eMobile with large-scale coverage in Tokyo's subway and business areas.

Apart from lower transmission costs, Huawei’s full-performance IP-based HSPA solution has many advantages for operators. For example, the outdoor Distributed Node B units are easy to deploy and the resulting shorter installation period reduces cost of network construction and ensures faster time-to-market.

”Being a global mainstream vendor in the communication field, Huawei can supply us with high quality products which meet the requirements of the Japanese market,” stated Mr. Eric Gan, Representative Director, President and COO of eMobile, “Huawei’s ALL-IP mobile broadband solution provides us with outdoor and indoor coverage and enables us to deliver innovative services to our customers so that we remain the leading provider of high-speed data services in Japan.”

“We are glad to support eMobile in building the first ALL-IP mobile broadband network in Japan,” said Mr. Yan Lida, president of Huawei Japan. “The signing of the expansion contract represents a strengthening of the strategic partnership between eMobile and Huawei. We are focused on creating a customized high quality network for eMobile to help it better serve its customers.”

Huawei has been working with eMobile since July 2006 when eMobile selected Huawei as the key partner for its 3G network construction – the first IP-based HSPA network in Japan. In phase one, Huawei has deployed a HSPA network with over 1,000 Node Bs for eMobile, covering major cities in Japan including Hiroshima and Sapporo.
