Huawei held a signing ceremony with Intercellular Nigeria at this year’s Mobile World Congress, where Intercellular CEO Mr Emad Sukker announced a joint LTE 4G transformation of the CDMA network. With this alliance, Huawei will deploy an 800M LTE network to meet the strategic and service demands of the Nigerian market.
As a major CDMA operator in Nigeria, Intercellular adopts the most advanced communications technologies to provide the Nigerian people with higher network quality. Mr Sukker explained how Intercellular chose its strategic alliance. “Huawei is both the world’s leading supplier of LTE devices and also the most trustworthy partner. This LTE collaboration will help Intercellular accelerate our LTE transformation and give our people better and faster network services.”
Mr An Jian, President of Huawei Global Wireless Networks Marketing and Solutions, said, “As a leading global ICT solutions provider, Huawei is always committed to building a better connected world. Because customers are our priority, we propose network construction principles centered on user experience. At the same time, Huawei embraces an attitude of open cooperation with operators to help them make efficient investments and build a speedy, simple, and smart network that achieves the best E2E network experience. Huawei’s products and services now serve over 170 countries and regions worldwide, with nearly a third of the world’s population using the network services we provide.”
Mr Feng Weixiong spoke of Huawei’s presence in Nigeria. “We aim to provide the most competitive network services and actively promote LTE to keep up with the increasing standard of communication demanded by the Nigerian people. Huawei has always been the preferred partner of Nigerian operators. We have carried out large-scale deployment of 20 000 base stations, witnessed the increase in the Nigerian mobile user base from 27 000 to 117 million, and contributed to an explosion in mobile penetration rate from 0.02% to 83.7%. We work hand-in-hand with operators to promote the rapid development of the Nigerian telecommunications market. As users demand a ROADS experience and global telecommunications undergoes digital transformation, LTE in Nigeria is the next step in accelerated market development where Huawei will be the strategic partner of choice.”
The cooperation between Huawei and Intercellular will further promote LTE development in the Nigerian market with construction of an experience-centric LTE network to provide the best online experience for Nigerian users. Intercellular in this cooperation benefits from faster commercial LTE broadband development and transformation.
So far, Huawei has helped deploy over 200 LTE networks covering every continent in the world. The global telecommunications leader serves more than 140 capital cities and nine major financial centers.
