Posted: 09-Oct-2000 [Source: Ericsson press release]

[Another pocket of GPRS service appears, this time in China.]

Ericsson and Guangdong Mobile Communication Co. Ltd. (GMCC) have launched China's largest GPRS pre-commercial network. GMCC will begin offering high-speed wireless data communications services to customers in the cities of Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

The launch of the pre-commercial GPRS (General Packet Radio Service)network in the two cities once again evidences Ericsson's technology and market leadership in GPRS worldwide, and strengthens the position of GMCC as a leading mobile services operator in China.

GMCC launched the service with a live demonstration held during a recent ceremony in Guangzhou, at which GMCC also announced that their total subscriber number had reached the 10 million mark.

Li Gang, General Manager of GMCC, said at the ceremony, "The GPRS pre-commercial network from Ericsson will enable GMCC to have the network capacity to provide high-speed data communications services to our customers. This will help them to smoothly enter the age of the Mobile Internet, while enjoying the conveniences and services brought by high-speed mobile data communications."

"We are delighted to co-operate with GMCC with our cutting-edge GPRS solutions," said Stephen Yeung, Executive Vice President of Ericsson (China) Co. Ltd.. "GPRS is a major step on the path to 3G, and Ericsson has every confidence and every ability to provide GMCC with the industry- leading solutions needed to enable them to offer high-speed wireless data communications services to their customers."

Guangzhou and Shenzhen were selected by GMCC as the initial two cities in which to deploy GPRS because of the huge number of subscribers there and the resulting complexity of the GSM networks. This means that the experiences and expertise gained from the GPRS deployment in those cities will serve as an especially valuable reference in future deployments and expansion of GPRS networks in the country.
