After securing their respective TD-SCDMA contracts with China Mobile, Alcatel Shanghai Bell and Datang Mobile will be deploying half of China Netcom's TD-SCDMA expansion project in the coastal city of Qingdao, Shandong Province.

Under the project, Alcatel-Lucent's China flagship and Datang will provide China Netcom with core and radio equipment to expand the TD-SCDMA network. In addition, Alcatel Shanghai Bell will provide China Netcom with intelligent network and streaming media service platforms. All macro node B and distributed node B (base station) equipment will be manufactured by Alcatel Shanghai Bell. Upon completion of the project, China Netcom will be able to provide a broad suite of advanced 3G services to subscribers in central business districts, government, tourist locations and sites related to the 2008 Olympic Games.

"This successful bid is another powerful testimony to the strength of our strategic partnership with Datang in TD-SCDMA," said Gerard Dega, president of Alcatel Shanghai Bell. "With our proven industrialization capability and global experience in 3G deployment, we will be able to support China Netcom in its effort to satisfy end-users with new, high-quality, next-generation mobile services."

"China Netcom's TD-SCDMA trial network expansion program in Qingdao will enable it to demonstrate the wide variety of value-added services 3G TD-SCDMA networks can deliver," said Tang Ruan, president of Datang.

In 2004, Alcatel Shanghai Bell entered into a strategic partnership with Datang to further the development of TD-SCDMA. In April 2007, Alcatel Shanghai Bell and Datang jointly announced their success in China Mobile's TD-SCDMA trial network expansion in the cities of Shanghai and Guanghzou in China.
