Huawei to deploy Japan's first IP-based HSDPA Radio Access Network
eMobile, an innovative mobile operator in Japan, has selected Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, as a key 3G equipment supplier for the roll out of its new UMTS and High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) network.
According to the agreement, Huawei will deploy Japan's first-ever all IP-based HSDPA radio access network, initially in several larger metropolitan areas such as Sendai and Sapporo, and support the roll out of eMobile's nationwide UMTS/HSDPA network.
Ren Zhengfei, CEO of Huawei, says, “We are delighted to have become a key partner of eMobile. The Japanese market is the most demanding in the world in terms of product quality and poses extremely rigorous requirements on the comprehensive capabilities of vendors. This cooperation recognises Huawei’s ability to rely on innovative R&D to deliver world-class products and solutions that meet the highest standards in quality and reliability. We are confident in our ability to help eMobile maximize their customers’ value and gain a leading market position.”
Huawei's entrance into the Japanese market highlights Huawei's global position in UMTS and HSDPA infrastructure. One of the key innovations that Huawei is introducing as part of its all-IP radio access network is the UMTS new generation Node B, which incorporates new and innovative features, such as the high efficiency digital power amplifier supporting the multi-carrier technology, full–performance HSDPA and all-IP transmission solution. Huawei has accumulated extensive experience in the global deployments of its new generation UMTS Node Bs in countries and regions including Portugal, Poland, Malaysia, and Indonesia as well as Hong Kong.
“As one of the world’s leading UMTS and HSDPA suppliers, Huawei has won 29 UMTS commercial contracts to date,” says Wang Jiading, vice president, Huawei Technologis, Middle East and North Africa region. “Huawei provides innovative and customer-oriented solutions to enhance long-term value and potential growth for our customers.”
Dr. Sachio Semmoto, founder, chairman and CEO of eMobile, says, “Huawei is a dynamic company and we are confident that we have selected the right partner to help us lead the market in product innovation, customer service and maximising value for customers.”
