UTStarcom in Demand as Potential Chinese 3G (TD-SCDMA) Infrastructure Partner
From Unstrung: Trio Hush on Chinese 3G
"Lucent Technologies Inc., Motorola Inc., and Nokia Corp. are the only major Western vendors yet to announce a Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) (Chinese 3G technology) infrastructure market strategy, with UTStarcom Inc. touted as one of the few remaining high-profile partners for the trio.
"Ericsson last week announced it has teamed with local supplier ZTE Corp. on development of the technology, while Nortel Networks Ltd. has partnered with China Putian. Siemens AG has linked with Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., and Alcatel has announced a similar deal with Datang Telecom Technology Co. Ltd."
"Meanwhile UTStarcom, in light of its Chinese market experience, is likely to be in demand as a potential infrastructure partner. “Now that Ericsson has teamed up with ZTE, UTStarcom remains one of the potential remaining TD-SCDMA partners for established 3G vendors,” adds Current Analysis’s Jarich."
