Nokia Networks says that it is now the top non Chinese vendor in the second phase of a significant TD LTE tender with China Mobile, although it declined to offer any details about the value of the contract.
The company simply stated that it had secured an unspecified, but double-digit share of China Mobile's recent network tender and will cover 18 out of 31 provinces.
"We are proud to be the only non-Chinese partner to be awarded a double-digit share by China Mobile, which strengthens our position as one of the top 3 partners for China Mobile in TD-LTE, " Markus Borchert, President of the Greater China region at Nokia Networks said in a statement.
The contract covers Nokia's indoor and outdoor base stations as well as its cloud-enabled NetAct network management system. Nokia Networks will support China Mobile across the 1.9 GHz, 2.6 GHz and 2.3 GHz frequency bands in both single mode TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA / TD-LTE dual mode implementation. Network implementation, planning & optimization, care and training services are included in the agreement.
