Shyam Telelink prepares network rollout in India

Shyam Telelink, the Indian subsidiary of Sistema, has selected three vendors to supply equipment for construction of CDMA 800 MHz mobile network in India. ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei Technologies will each be assigned a different geographical region in India for the deployment of equipment.

  Mr. Raymond Armes, President of Shyam Telelink, commented: "We have chosen ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei Technologies as our vendors based on the competitive advantages of their equipment and their capabilities to implement complex nation-wide projects."

  The contract includes equipment delivery (including base stations, main radio- and switching subsystems and other auxiliary equipment) and provision of services related to network design, installation, start-up and commissioning.

  Shyam Telelink was awarded a pan-Indian license in March 2008 and now has spectrum in 19 telecommunications circles, covering 27 Indian states with a population of 1,066.5 million people (which comprise around 94.5% of the Indian population).
