Xinwei to launch services in August

17 May 2012

Beijing-based network infrastructure provider Xinwei Telecom is gearing up to launch multi-carrier wireless in the local loop (McWiLL) services, based on SCDMA technology in Cambodia. The Phnom Penh Post cites a company statement as saying that Xinwei Cambodia plans to introduce the network in August this year, with backing from the China Development Bank. Xinwei was officially awarded a full-service unified telecoms operator licence (allowing fixed and mobile services) by the Cambodian government in August 2011, via which the Chinese firm says it will launch its first international venture as a network operator, having previously acted as telecoms equipment vendor in around 20 countries worldwide where it has secured contracts to supply and deploy McWiLL-based systems.
