3G CDMA 2000 expands in India

Reliance Infocomm and Tata Teleservices are the driving factors of telecom growth in India especially in CDMA network implementations. The anti-outsourcing brigade in US should see to this how Indian Companies are helping Qualcomm, Cisco, Lucent, Nortel, Ericsson, Alcatel and thousands of others not only as a consultant or contractors but also as a customer. Lets us all know what TRADE means. India is not just a cheap labour port it is also a R&D Hub and no longer it is follower of technologies it has become one of the early implementers too.
3gNewsRoom : Lucent Technologies announced it has been awarded a contract worth nearly $30 million to support the CDMA network expansion of Tata Teleservices in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
