Denmark’s biggest operator TDC has chosen Huawei as the sole vendor to modernise its nationwide mobile network in Denmark and provide managed services over a six-year period.

The deal, valued at €506 million, sees the China-based vendor replace all the base stations in TDC's mobile network with the latest equipment and software, and manage and operate the network as a managed service.

TDC said Huawei will implement its Service Quality Management service to visualise end-user experience and service quality, as well as its Single RAN platform.

The vendor also will use SDR (Software Defined Radio) technology, which will upgrade the network through software configurations.

TDC said the agreement is a part of its plan to extend its LTE network coverage to the least populated areas of the country before the end of 2015 and maintain its market-leading position.

Carsten Dilling, Group CEO at TDC, said that the contract will enable TDC to “future proof the network”.

He added: “We have entered a solid agreement and the Danes will soon notice the effect through better network coverage and speed.”

For Huawei, the deal, which is one of its biggest contracts in the Nordic region, is a boost to it European expansion as they replace Ericsson as TDC’s main vendor.

Ryan Ding, CEO of carrier network business group at Huawei, commented: “The cooperation is a milestone for Huawei in Denmark and allows us to step up our investments locally, resulting in new recruitment and expanded cooperation with local companies.”

Huawei added that the deal will create 100 new jobs in Denmark.
