Tacom launches 2G/3G network deployed by Huawei
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (“HUAWEI”), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, has helped Tacom, a subsidiary of VimpelCom, successfully launch its 2G/3G network in Tajikistan.
To choose the vendor for the Tajikistan network, VimpelCom organised a two process tender for all renowned global telecom network vendors. Based on a detailed analysis of proposed solution and the vendor's experience in the telecom market, Huawei was chosen as the main vendor for the project and its Softswitch recognised as the best solution for the operator’s requirements.
As a 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’s Mobile Softswitch solutions provides large network capacity and excellent processing performance to ensure smooth services. Its IP-based distributed architecture simplifies the network structure, speeds up network deployment, and reduces network transmission cost. This protects the telecom carriers' long-term investment and meets their requirements for rolling out new services.
“The Tacom network is VimpelCom’s first experience of providing commercial 3G services,” said Victor Pilyugin, director general of Tacom. “We are satisfied with Huawei's advanced solutions and professional services and look to build a long-term partnership with Huawei.”
“We are grateful for Tacom and VimpelCom’s trust in Huawei”, said Sun Yelin, President of Huawei’s CIS Region. “We believe that the Tacom 2G/3G network will become a success story that highlights Huawei's cooperation with our strategic partner – VimpelCom. Huawei will consistently provide innovative and customised products and services to create long-term value for VimpelCom.”
Huawei’s GSM solutions serve over 120 million subscribers of world-leading operators. The company has also won over 33 UMTS/ HSDPA commercial contracts worldwide. The cooperation with Tacom further consolidates Huawei’s leading position in the CIS markets.
