China’s mobile network provider Huawei has won a mega mobile deal with Denmark’s TDC, Online magazine MobileWorldLive reported.
In a deal reported to be worth DKK 4 billion ($727 million) over six years, Huawei is to supply and manage the mobile network of Denmark’s TDC including 4G from March 2014.
While it is a huge deal for Chinese Huawei, it is a blow to Ericsson that used to manage TDC’s network from Romania, the Wall Street Journal reported. Huawei is going to replace TDC’s existing base stations, and will add 200 new employees to its Danish operations. Furthermore the Chinese supplier plans to set up a network operating centre in Denmark.
“This is a milestone for Huawei in Denmark,” said Jim Lu, Huawei’s head of Central Eastern Europe and the Nordics.
The TDC announcement comes shortly after senior Huawei executives told reporters in a briefing on Wednesday 18 September that the Chinese firm expects to rake in more than $2 billion in 4G sales this year as operators in China and Europe expand their networks.
