28 Jun 2007

Huawei Technologies has announced that it has been awarded a High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) network expansion contract by Vodafone that will serve the seven major cities in Spain, including Barcelona and Madrid. The 3.5G expansion contract follows the successful deployment of Huawei’s first contract with Vodafone Spain, signed in August 2006, under which it supplied the cellco with distributed node Bs. The node Bs’ Remote Radio Unit (RRU), with an output power of 40W, can be installed directly on masts, decreasing power loss and increasing network coverage and performance.
