Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile Sign lightRadio Architecture Deal

Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile have signed a co-creation agreement under which teams from the two companies are conducting joint development and test activities on a series of lightRadio projects at Alcatel-Lucent’s Stuttgart lab.

This follows the non-binding MoU signed between Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile in mid 2011. It also builds on the collaboration between the companies on the delivery of superfast mobile broadband using TD-LTE technology.

Alcatel-Lucent said this collaboration help to accelerate the smooth commercial introduction of the lightRadio product family to meet China Mobile’s business initiatives and support growing customer demand for high-bandwidth mobile broadband services.

Ben Verwaayen, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent, said: "The ability for us to pair with the world’s largest mobile provider to gain deeper insight into its customer behaviours and the way services are evolving will ensure we develop lightRadio in the right direction. The knowledge we gain from implementing lightRadio to support the delivery of mobile broadband services to 650 million people will help us to meet the growing demand for services across the globe.

  • China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile provider, had around 650 million subscribers at the end of 2011.
