28 Aug 2003

French equipment manufacturer Alcatel has announced a planned USD100 million R&D investment in the People’s Republic. Much of the sum will be channelled into 3G research. The announcement follows hot on the heels of one by NTT DoCOMo, which revealed earlier this month that it was planning on setting up a research centre in Beijing for the development of advanced wireless applications.
