Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei") launched its latest customized terminals for operators: the world's first High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) USB Modem, E270, and the stylish U120, a 3G handset optimized for music lovers on the move. The devices were unveiled at the 3GSM World Conference in Barcelona, Spain under the theme "customization, partnership and value."
Able to support up to 7.2Mbps High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and a HSUPA transmission rate of up to 2Mbps, the E270 is engineered to deliver a rich array of data service applications to business end-users that require seamless connectivity. The stylish U120 is positioned as an entry-level device that will help operators drive further development of the 3G market by broadening the appeal of 3G multimedia services and applications. Designed with music enthusiasts in mind, the U120 provides a strong value proposition as it boasts many versatile features and capabilities previously found only in high-end handsets.
Huawei has helped world-class operators such as Vodafone, Hutchison, Telefonica, SFR and PCCW to expand their 3G services, and provides overall support and services to global operators covering network infrastructure to terminals. In 2006, Huawei's terminal global sales volume exceeded 27 million units, recording a year-on-year increase of 100 percent in the past three consecutive years.
"Huawei has always been focused on providing innovative solutions to meet the needs of operators worldwide," commented Mr. Guo Ping, president of Huawei Terminal Business Unit. "These stylish terminals provide them with the means to deliver specific services to their customers which will in turn help them to increase their Average Revenue Per Unit (ARPU)."
