Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it successfully hosted the Global Conference of GSM Network Evolution in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from April 19 to 20, which included participants from mobile carriers around the world.

At the conference, global carriers with successful GSM network operation experiences including VIVO from Brazil, China Mobile, and MTN from South Africa, shared their network development, evolution, services and strategies with various distinguished guests from all over the world. In addition, Luis Minoru Shibata, the renowned analyst from Yankee Group, delivered speeches and presentations of his insights on future GSM industry trends and development.

VIVO, China Mobile, and MTN selected Huawei as their strategic partner to construct the largest Latin America GSM network and a Mobile Softswitch core network, while performing network swaps in the cities of Brazil, China and Africa respectively. By deploying Huawei's EnerG GSM solution, Huawei helped the operators to consolidate their leading position in the local region as well as internationally, all due to the competitive edge the solution provided.

Mr. Luis Minoru Shibata, the renowned telecom industry analyst of Yankee Group also said, "GSM will be existent for a long run due to its mature technology, abundant terminals and large customer base. The future of GSM faces multiple possibilities: evolution to 3G, co-existence with 3G and to IP. Challenged by decreasing ARPU and complexity of 3G construction, it is time for carriers to seriously plan an investment-protective evolution solution and establish rational multi-supplier strategy that guarantee its edge in both 2G and 3G at maximum."

During the conference, the attendees also visited VIVO's GSM network demo-site and conducted in-depth discussion about GSM network construction.
