Econet Wireless New Zealand to Build 3G Network with Huawei Technologies
Posted on 6-Dec-2005 16:15. | Tags Filed under: News.



Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. was comissioned by New Zealand Econet Wireless New Zealand Limited to deploy a WCDMA network in the country.

Econet Wireless will roll-out its long-awaited mobile network in New Zealand with the construction of a core radio network infrastructure starting first with the Auckland business district early next year.

The company has already registered 0281 as the prefix number for its network, which, once it becomes operational, will service a limited number of subscribers until further cell sites are built. The company directly holds a 2.5G licence and also acquired a 3G licence through its partnership with the Hautaki Trust, which was awarded a special consideration by the New Zealand government on behalf of the Maori people during the initial licence auction more than two years ago.

Econet's parent company, Econet Wireless Group operates wireless networks mostly in African countries, such as Botswana, Kenya, Nigeria, Lesotho. The New Zealand 3G network will be EWG's first 3G deployment. This is also the first 3G network constructed by Huawei in the Australasia area. EWG has 1.76 million subscribers in 4 networks and employs 1,400 people.

Huawei will start the first deployment phase in Auckland, and target to complete the nationwide networks within the next 3 years.

Huawei provides end-to-end WCDMA solutions, including a complete set of WCDMA wireless base station systems, core networks and IN, which provide 3G services such as video phone, high-speed internet access, wireless mail, MMS, VMS, and other multimedia services.
