Denmark's TDC has awarded a six year contract to Huawei to upgrade its mobile networks and take over the managed services.
The USD700 million contract will also see an unspecified number of TDC staff move to Huawei, while the company has pledged to hire an additional 100 local staff.
Huawei expects to have completed the recruitment of new staff by next March.
"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." says Carsten Dilling, Group CEO at TDC.
TDC has also committed to extend its LTE network coverage to even the least populated areas of the country before the end of 2015.
