Three subsidiaries of China Mobile and one of China Unicom have selected Alcatel-Lucent to provide network optimization service for their wireless networks.
The subsidiaries of China Mobile are Shanghai, Guizhou and Shanxi. Inner Mongolia Unicom, the subsidiary of China Unicom, selected Alcatel-Lucent to optimize its CDMA network in Inner Mongolian province. The project was secured through Alcatel Shanghai Bell, Alcatel-Lucent’s flagship company in China.
Alcatel-Lucent will provide tailor-made service solutions to help each of these operators enhance network coverage and performance and improve resource utilization. It will help the three China Mobile subsidiaries plan for network development in order to be able to offer new services and thereby generation new revenue. Alcatel-Lucent also will provide courses to help the operators train their employees to ensure optimal use of the networks’ capabilities.
These projects are expected to be completed at the end of 2007. Once implemented, these three operators will have the competitive advantage of being able to offer their customers service on upgraded networks that provide maximum coverage, strong signals and minimal dropped call rates.
Inner Mongolia Unicom will deploy Alcatel-Lucent’s advanced e-Optimization solution in its CDMA network to analyze voice/data service and help Inner Mongolia Unicom formulate new resource distribution strategies.
