UK based Hutchison 3G (Three) has awarded a managed services contract to Huawei. Under the agreement Huawei will deliver service management and operations for Three's core network in the UK, the transport network and the ICT applications.
Huawei has selected TechMahindra as its ICT Partner to deliver the ICT applications management. The agreement between Three and Huawei will see a number of permanent roles transfer to work for Huawei's managed services business and Tech Mahindra for the ICT applications management.
