Huawei Lands Major Deal at TDC
SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has been selected by TDC as a sole vendor to deploy the nationwide GSM/UMTS/LTE network in Denmark and provide managed services over a six year period.
"Huawei is one of the most innovative players in the telecommunications sector.” says Carsten Dilling, Group CEO at TDC, “Through this contract we will change all the base stations in the mobile network to the latest network equipment and software, ensuring that we future proof the network. We have entered a solid agreement and the Danes will soon notice the effect through better network coverage and speed.”
TDC, established in 1882, is the biggest operator in Denmark. In order to keep the leading position in the local market, TDC has committed itself to cover even the least populated areas with LTE network coverage before the end of 2015, providing an optimal user experience for Danish subscribers. TDC has chosen Huawei as a reliable partner to manage and operate the network, and to continuously ensure the highest standards in terms of functionality and quality of the network.
"The trust TDC has put in us as its strategic partner is yet another example of that we can offer technically leading innovations that improves the end user experience and lowers TCO for operators. The cooperation is a milestone for Huawei Denmark and allows us to step up our investments locally, resulting in recruitment and expanded cooperation with local companies to meet our obligations to TDC.” said Jim Lu, President of Huawei CEE & Nordic region.
Huawei will implement its Service Quality Management service to visualize end user experience and service quality. This will further increase TDC's focus on improving their end customers satisfaction and loyalty. Furthermore, Huawei will implement its SingleRAN solution that is based on a unified open platform, supporting multi modes and frequencies. The modularization and standardization effectively lowers the expansion cost and save space for the operators. Using SDR (Software Defined Radio) technology, the network can be upgraded through software configurations, ensuring customers requirements for long term development of the network.
