In Brief: Huawei seeks momentum from Japan deal

July 21, 2006

China's Huawei is looking at its deal with Japan's eMobile as a spark for potential further expansion in the eastern Pacific region.

The telecom equipment maker this week signed an agreement with eMobile to deploy Japan's first Internet Protocol-based radio-access network.

A Huawei spokesman told the China Daily Friday that the agreement was a big one because eastern Pacific technical standards for third-generation wireless are among the highest in the world.

"The current focus of Huawei Japan is on fixed and mobile operators where deregulation is opening the market to increase the challenges and opportunities for non-traditional communication companies," Huawei's spokesman explained.

Huawei will assist eMobile with deployment of a network around three Japanese cities and then develop a nationwide universal mobile system followed by a 3G network, the newspaper said.
