TDC selects Huawei for managed services

TDC has selected Huawei as a sole vendor to modernize the nationwide GSM/UMTS/LTE network in Denmark and provide managed services over a six year period.

The value of the contract is over $700 million over the term of the agreement.

Carsten Dilling, group CEO, TDC and Ryan Ding, CEO, Huawei’s carrier business group signed a long term strategic partnership to enhance the quality of TDC’s mobile networks and services in Denmark.

Huawei will also create around 100 new jobs in Denmark in addition to the transfer of a number of existing engineering staff into Huawei. Huawei expects to have completed the recruitment of new staff by March 1st, 2014.

“Huawei is one of the most innovative players in the telecommunications sector. 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,” said Carsten Dilling, group CEO, TDC.

“The trust that TDC is putting in Huawei as its strategic partner is yet another evidence that we can offer technically leading innovation that improves the end user experience and lowers total costs for operators. The cooperation is a milestone for Huawei in Denmark and allows us to step up our investments locally, resulting in new recruitment and expanded cooperation with local companies to meet our obligations to TDC,” said Ryan Ding, CEO, carrier network business group, Huawei.

Huawei will implement its service quality management service to visualize end user experience and service quality. This will further increase TDC’s focus on improving end customer satisfaction and loyalty. Furthermore, Huawei will implement its Single RAN solution that is based on a unified open platform, supporting multi modes and frequencies.

The modularization and standardization effectively lowers the expansion cost and reduces space for operators. Using SDR (Software Defined Radio) technology, the network can be upgraded through software configurations, ensuring customers’ requirements are met through long term development of the network.
