China's Jilin Mobile Comm. Selects Alcatel for NGN

China's Jilin Mobile Communications Company (Jilin MCC) awarded a EUR 50 million contract to Alcatel to deploy a Mobile NGN solution.

Alcatel will deliver its distributed mobile-switching solution based on the Alcatel 5020 Spatial Atrium Softswitch, a multi-standard mobile callserver controlling distributed media gateways.

Jilin Mobile is also expanding its current Alcatel-powered GSM/GPRS
mobile network by deploying the Alcatel Evolium multi-standard end-to-end network infrastructure solution. With previous
GSM expansion already provided to the operator, Alcatel will have increased Jilin Mobile's mobile network capacity by 30 % to serve up to 8 million subscribers.

With the completion of all the projects in September 2006, Alcatel's solution will cover all the cities in Jilin province, including Chuangchun, Jilin, Yanji, Siping, Songyuan, Liaoyun, Baicheng, Baishan and Tonghua. The contract was won through Alcatel Shanghai Bell.
