Alcatel Shanghai Bell Win China Mobile’s 4G EPC Tender
The result of China Mobile 4G Evolved Packet Core(EPC) tender came out.Though the tender scale cannot compare with that of its TD-LTE Wireless Gear tender which ended earlier, it still outdistance other two domestic operators——China Telecom and China Unicom. Besides, China Mobile considered less about the price so most winner bidders got their share with a relatively low quote.
It’s easy to find that the allocation of share is rather fair from the final results. The biggest winner Alcatel Shanghai Bell only got a share less than 25% while ZTE and Huawei were separately awarded more than 20%. Others got relatively lower. The gap among three top winners just fluctuated about 1%.
The situation is totally different from the same tender from China Telecom in which two vendors(Huawei and ZTE) win over 80% share. Insiders revealed China Telecom is pretty sensitive on quote. Of course it also related to the tender scale.
