NEC Corp. announced that NEC Telecommunications (China) is ready to commence production of 3G mobile radio base stations (Node-B).

The plant initially manufactures Node-Bs for 3G carriers outside China by collaborating with NEC's delivery operation center (DOC) in Amsterdam, a base for the delivery of node-B mainly for European market.

In China, NEC says it will decide the detailed production strategy, including the site of DOC as a core delivery operation center, by flexibly utilizing resources inside and outside NEC.

The production base procures major core pre-product modules, such as channel coding cards and line cards, from NEC's major manufacturing sites in Japan (NEC Saitama Ltd and NEC Wireless Networks Ltd), and other general parts such as power modules and racks from local vendors. The plant then assembles and customizes them according to the requirement of each operator and carries out final investigations and validations.

In addition, NEC recently established "NEC Telecommunications (Hong Kong) Ltd", a mobile network operation outsourcing company to further expand the business of the new company to include 3G projects in China. The new company marks NEC's entry into a new business area, accumulating capability in network system outsourcing with the combination of NEC's competences as a mobile network vendor and highly skilled outsourcing staff.
