Huawei has won a total of 241 LTE contracts by 2013 leads in commercial LTE network deployments worldwide
(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 23 December 2013
Release date- 20122013 - China, Shanghai - Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced that by December 2013, it had signed a total of 241 LTE contracts worldwide.
The company has already won more LTE network deployment contracts worldwide than any other equipment vendor and has been engaged in 110 of the 244 commercial LTE networks already deployed worldwide.
Huawei's wireless networks currently support more than 500 mobile operators and over two billion mobile subscribers on 3G and LTE networks worldwide.
While LTE networks are connecting more and more people to the internet today, they will grow to also support wireless machine-to-machine connections, a key building block of what many people call the Internet of Things. Such networks will gradually connect global supply chains, connect vehicles to intelligent traffic management systems, domestic utility meters to smart grids and domestic appliances to all manner of new cloud-based applications.
'Huawei began its investment in LTE network development in 2009. This investment, together with our active participation in 3GPP standards and our commitment to our customers, is continuing to pay off with strong year on year growth,' said David Wang, president of Huawei's Wireless Network business unit.
Through a continuing commitment to innovation, Huawei has helped to develop LTE-A technology capable of delivering data speeds of up to 300Mbps, putting wireless technology on a par with the fiber-based fixed line networks in terms of speed for the first time. Further innovations and the release of further spectrum will enable even higher data speeds over LTE networks in the coming years, according to him.
Central to Huawei's vision for the future of mobility is its SoftMobile solution, essentially a mobile network architecture that embeds the flexibility and efficiency of software control into the wireless network. Huawei's SoftMobile approach will help to revolutionize the operations of mobile infrastructure, improving the experience for users and reducing the cost for the operator.
'Wireless technology is truly transforming the lives of people. Despite the progress we've seen over the last 10 years, we still believe we are only at the beginning of what's possible. The mobile networks of the future will connect to any device, anywhere in the world, with near zero latency. The opportunities for industry are infinite - for medicine, retailing, transport, banking, media, education and manufacturing when 'on-demand' will meet demand,' added Mr. Wang.
