China Unicom Awards $344 Million in Contracts to Motorola

China Unicom awarded Motorola multiple contracts, which resulted in approximately US$344 million of orders, during the past six months for a major Phase 3.2 CDMA2000 1X wireless network expansion. Equipment for the new CDMA2000 1X network has been deployed and is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2004.

Motorola has been providing equipment and global network services that will significantly enlarge network coverage in 11 provinces. China Unicom estimates this expansion will enable it to grow the subscriber capacity of its 800 MHz CDMA2000 1X network by more than 5.4 million.

Motorola said it has been the largest mobile wireless system supplier to China Unicom since 1994 when it began supplying GSM solutions, and has played an integral role in China Unicom's migration to advanced CDMA technology.

  • China Unicom currently has over 110 million subscribers on its CDMA and GSM networks nationwide.
