Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd has been selected by TransTelecom, a telecom operator in Bulgaria, to deploy a commercial WiMAX network, covering central business districts and hot spots in the country's major cities.

According to the contract, Huawei will supply an end-to-end WiMAX solution working on 3.5GHz frequency band, including terminals, as well as a major upgrade of the TransTelecom central exchange equipment for the operation of a fully mobile WiMAX network in 2008.

In 2006, TransTelecom deployed a 16d-based WiMAX network to meet the country's increasing broadband needs, and the operator has chosen Huawei to deliver an upgraded 16e-based network. Huawei's 16e-based WiMAX solution integrates the most advanced technologies such as multiple-input multiple-output and OFDMA, which features high bandwidth, wide area coverage, large capacity, as well as providing better mobility. Huawei's new base stations enable TransTelecom to quickly roll out innovative new services to its customers while reducing total cost of ownership.

"Extensive tests of this new technology have surpassed all our expectations. In particular, we witnessed Huawei demonstrate one of the first handovers of traffic from one base station to another in Europe," said John Munnery, chairman of TransTelecom. "Huawei has exhibited total commitment to the project throughout our selection process, and has proven them to be one of the leaders in this fast-developing technology. What's more, we are also impressed with Huawei's localized engineering and delivery capability."

"Huawei has deep capabilities in network migration paths for WiMAX commercial deployments," stated Jim Xu, president of Huawei Eastern Europe region. "With our rich delivery experience and professional localized engineering team, we are confident that we can help TransTelecom to provide an excellent wireless broadband service."
