PLANO, Texas, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, a leading global information and communication technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced that it has been selected by United Wireless to swap out the existing network and install its industry-leading SingleRAN wireless solution in Kansas to support the infrastructure needs of its customers.

According to the contract, Huawei's SingleRAN solution will include LTE and CDMA core technology to meet subscribers' increasing data service needs. With its rural landscape, telecommunications customers in Kansas are challenged by outdated networks that inhibit high-performance video streaming and fast web browsing.

Huawei will be wholly responsible for the new network, including installation, integration and commissioning new equipment.

"Huawei successfully outperformed all competitive solution providers and was selected based on its ability to exceed all technical requirements," said Charles Ding, President of Huawei North America.

"We are impressed with Huawei's ability to provide a high-performance, high-speed network that will significantly improve our customers' overall technology experience," said Craig Mock, General Manager, United Wireless. "We look forward to a strong partnership and meeting future wireless challenges together." United Wireless will be utilizing Huawei's infrastructure to deploy its new 4G LTE network in addition to upgrading the existing 3G system.
