French equipment vendor Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by Chuan Wei to deploy a WiMAX network in Cambodia, set for launch in mid-2009. Under the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will provide a complete turnkey solution, including integration, design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance services. Chuan Wei was awarded a licence to operate a WiMAX network in Cambodia in June 2008, and aims to sign up one million subscribers within two years of launching services. Alan Khov, president of Chuan Wei, said: ‘The network will provide significant infrastructural support to Cambodia’s economic growth, improving communications for local businesses and multinationals. It will support high quality voice telephony in addition to broadband access, thanks to the end-to-end quality of service features built into the Alcatel-Lucent solution.’
