MADRID, Spain -- Huawei Technologies (“Huawei”), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has been selected by the world’s largest mobile operator, Vodafone, to deliver and install the radio access part of its WCDMA/ 3G broadband (HSDPA) network for certain key cities in Spain.

Europe is recognized as one of the leading and most competitive mobile markets in the world, while Spain possesses one of the fastest growing 3G subscriber rates and highest Average Revenue Per User rates for operators. As a result, the marketplace in Spain is characterised by strong competition among global mobile operators as well as suppliers. For Vodafone, a global leader in 3G solutions, Vodafone Spain, with over 1.2 million 3G subscribers, is one of the most important and strongest performing operating companies within the Group.

Prior to becoming an approved supplier, Huawei went through a period of substantial cooperation with the Vodafone Group together with a stringent certification process before being selected by Vodafone to deploy the radio access part of its WCDMA/ 3G broadband (HSDPA) network in Spain. This once again provides a further endorsement of Huawei’s credibility in the marketplace for delivering high quality, advanced capability, reliable products to fulfill the wide-ranging requirements of any advanced and emerged territory.

“Huawei’s innovative NodeB solution within the radio access network, fully addresses our requirements for deploying a world-class 3G broadband (HSDPA) network. The NodeB solution also enables us to significantly reduce our operating costs, maximise the benefits offered to customers and improve our competitive position in the marketplace,” said Helmut Hoffmann, Director of Global Networks,

“We are delighted to have Huawei as our strategic partner, and view their leading edge technology, professional service capability and in-depth understanding of network evolution as key drivers for our future cooperation,” said Detlef Schultz, Director of Global Supply Chain Management.
