India's First LTE Deals

9:20 AM -- Two of India's Long Term Evolution Time Division Duplex (LTE TDD) hopefuls, including the only company to hold a pan-India Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) license, have decided on their network equipment suppliers, according to sources contacted by Light Reading India.

According to the sources, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. has done well in the early engagements, while Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), which failed to win any 3G network deals in the country, is also believed to have landed some LTE business. (See AlcaLu Pins Its Hopes on LTE TDD in India.)

The news comes only days after Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM) and its device partners announced a range of dongles that will be ready for the launch of LTE TDD services in India. (See India Inches Closer to LTE TDD.)
