Videocon ties up with Huawei for 4G rollout

 Videocon Telecom has tied up with Chinese equipment firm Huawei Technologies for rolling out 4G network in six out of its 7 service areas.

"Videocon Telecom is rolling out LTE-ready Packet Core network from Huawei in 6 telecom circles in India. This network will provide a larger data coverage and reduce the overall capex and opex leading to an improved profitability and lower costs to end users," Videocon Telecom's Director and CEO Arvind Bali said in a statement.

Both companies had earlier run into dispute over payments when Videocon Telecom lost its 21 licences along with 101 others after the Supreme Court judgement in February 2012. Now, the issue has been resolved amicably. "We hold a global leadership position in Packet Core networks and are very happy to partner with Videocon to bring this cutting-edge technology," Huawei India CEO Cai Liqun said.

Videocon at present operates only in 4 service areas and out of which 3 are managed by Huawei for its 2G services.
