India's Reliance Awards US$200 Million Contract to Huawei

India's Reliance Communications awarded a network expansion contract valued at over US$200 million to Huawei Technologies. The project is described as the largest wireless network expansion undertaken by any operator across the world.

Under the agreement, Huawei will supply and provide services for CDMA & GSM base stations, including BSC (Base Station Controller) and switches, and help to create first class all-IP Next Generation Network infrastructure. Reliance Communications' decision to choose Huawei comes after more than a year's intense scrutiny and stringent equipment tests.
