Huawei to Construct 1st 3G Network for EWNZ

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Dec. 5 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), one of the world's leading networking and telecommunications equipment suppliers, was recognized by New Zealand Econet Wireless New Zealand Limited ("EWNZ") as the latter's strategic partner for WCDMA networks deployment. This is the first 3G network deployed by EWNZ in New Zealand, and is the first 3G network for its majority shareholder, EWG, in the world. Moreover, it's the first 3G network constructed by Huawei in the Australasia area.

Huawei, as the sole vendor, will start the first deployment phase in Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, and target to complete the nationwide networks within the next 3 years.

More importantly, Huawei will help EWNZ to enhance its market competitiveness in New Zealand with its extensive experience in 3G construction and operation.
