Motorola Inc. has been selected by China Telecommunications Corp. (China Telecom) as a CDMA network infrastructure supplier to upgrade a portion of its nationwide CDMA 2000 1X network to include next-generation broadband data capability and advanced multimedia services.

Motorola will provide CDMA radio access infrastructure for 42 cities in nine provinces across the country. Implementation of advanced data capability with this next-generation 1X technology will enable the delivery of personalized, rich media experiences such as video streaming and music downloads to mobile subscribers in China.

Major market
With the CDMA network upgrade project, Motorola will provide China Telecom with the latest versions of its CDMA2000 1X and next-generation CDMA equipment at thousands of cell sites. Installation of the equipment will expand the coverage footprint and replace older generation 1X equipment. The equipment will be installed in early 2009 and is part of an overall larger project to upgrade China Telecom's entire nationwide CDMA network to next-generation capability.

"China is a major market for Motorola. The deployment of next generation CDMA technology for China Telecom is another milestone in Motorola's long history of supporting major telecom operators in China," said Ruey-Bin Kao, president of Motorola China. "Motorola has a very significant install base of CDMA 1X equipment that will be expanded and upgraded reinforcing our position as a leading wireless infrastructure supplier in China."

Telecom operators in China are now providing both wireline and wireless telecommunications services to customers after the recent restructuring of the telecom industry.
