CDMA to 42 cities


Motorola has won a contract to upgrade part of China Telecom's CDMA network.

Motorola will provide a CDMA network in 42 Chinese cities, in early 2009.  It has not said how much it will be paid for the work. It is the second announcement about 3G network upgrade work awarded to a foreign company in recent weeks.

Alcatel-Lucent announced that it had won a $230 million contract from China Telecom to provide CDMA equipment in 56 cities. The Chinese government has said at least $29.2 billion will be invested in 3G next year.

China will use a mix of different 3G standards. China Mobile has a license for TD-SCDMA, the homegrown 3G standard, China Unicom will operate a WCDMA system, while China Telecom will get a licence for CDMA 2000 gear.
