China Unicom has selected Ericsson to supply W-CDMA networks and services for 15 provinces in China. The networks will enable high-speed 3G mobile communications.

Ericsson, along with its partners, was awarded contracts to supply W-CDMA core and/or radio access network systems in 15 provinces, including Beijing, Jilin, Jiangsu, Hubei, Heilongjiang, Liaoning, Anhui, Henan, Hainan, Shanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, Shandong, Guangdong and Hunan.

"We are extremely honored to be chosen by China Unicom for the first phase of their WCDMA network deployment in China," said Mats Olsson, president of Ericsson Greater China.

Ericsson will supply the 2G/3G common core platform, W-CDMA RAN system, network rollout services, tuning, spare parts and training services over the coming months. Deliveries and deployment have already begun. Up to now, first 3G calls have been successfully made in all the 14 cities supplied by Ericsson for China Unicom's initial pre-commercial launch scheduled on May 17, the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.
