Vodafone awards “Project Spring” contract to Huawei

Vodafone has awarded a five-year agreement to Huawei to expand the Single Radio Access Network (SingleRAN) for its “Project Spring” Phase 1 programme across the world.

Under this programme, Huawei will deliver a number of network enhancement projects including both products and services for Vodafone radio access networks in 15 countries including the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, South Africa, Mozambique, Lesotho, DRC and Ghana.

These projects will use Huawei’s innovative, industry-leading SingleRAN solutions and beam-forming Active Antenna System to expand and strengthen Vodafone’s mobile coverage, enhance customer experience and improve operational efficiency.

Huawei’s SingleRAN solutions will allow Vodafone to support wireless communications services on a single network infrastructure, under multiple mobile communications standards (2G, 3G, and LTE), while the beam-forming Active Antenna System will greatly simplify the antenna deployment and improve data throughput performance.

Huawei rotating CEO, Eric Xu said, “We look forward to working on this extension of our long-standing strategic relationship, which reflects the increasing demand for high-quality mobile broadband networks we are seeing globally as 4G grows in popularity. We believe our innovative technology helps our customers accelerate the transformation of the mobile broadband experience they offer both to consumers and enterprises.”
