Telefónica Latin America to Deploy Huawei's Service Delivery Platform

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodr�guez Zapatero attended a signing ceremony in Madrid where Telefónica agreed to deploy Huawei's new Service Delivery Platform (SDP) serving in all of its Latin American markets. The event occurred at the end of January. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Huawei's SDP platform, to be commercially launched during the first half of 2009, unifies the delivery of value-added services and eases the process of implementing new services such worldwide universal e-mail, mobile newspapers, 3G messaging solutions or advertising on mobile phones. The SDP opens the possibility of offering convergence services, for both fixed and mobile networks, as well as for residential and enterprise markets.
