Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd has deployed what it claims is Southeast Asia's largest 2.5GHz WiMAX commercial network in terms of the coverage area for Globe Telecom, a telecommunications services provider in the Philippines.

Huawei supplied Globe Telecom with a telecom-grade, end-to-end WiMAX solution that enabled the operator to widely deploy the network within a short time, according to the company press release.

"We are thrilled to support Globe Telecom in delivering quality broadband services and more comprehensive mobile broadband coverage to its subscribers," said Zhao Ming, president of CDMA and WiMAX product line at Huawei.

Huawei embarked on R&D of WiMAX technology in 2000 and has been awarded 34 commercial WiMAX 802.16e contracts globally as of the end of 2008.
