SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications networks for operators around the world, today announced that its All-IP CDMA solution has been successfully deployed in the commercial network of Tata Indicom ("TATA") in India.

India is an important strategic market in the global telecom industry. As India's leading CDMA operator, TATA is building a robust, pan-India telecom network to provide high-quality and reliable services, and realize its corporate vision of achieving 100 million subscribers by 2011 in India.

TATA selected Huawei's All-IP based CDMA core network solution and radio access equipment to replace its existing network in Delhi, Kolkata and other main cities, thus enabling its transformation towards 3G technology. Leveraging on its rich international experience in project deployment, Huawei successfully completed this project in six months. Results from independent third party audit reveal that the network is one of the best available. The new end-to-end All-IP network architecture allows TATA to simplify network operations, improve resource utilization, and significantly reduce operating expenditure.

The quality of the network was tested during the 2008 New Year festival when the call traffic was about 2.5 times the normal in Delhi. Huawei's robust IP mobile soft switch, renowned for its high-capacity reliability, ensured that TATA met the peak traffic challenge successfully. The high-throughput of the All-IP PARC platform allowed the network to cope easily with heavy load and delivered a high quality performance.

Mr. Max Yang, CEO Huawei India, said: "TATA is a very important customer for Huawei India and we're glad to experience the network success with TATA. With our strong reputation and expertise in the converged mobile and IP domain, Huawei is well positioned to improve our customers' network value with our All IP CDMA solution for their increasingly rapid telecom network development."
