To build transportation hub of HTTP and WAP service
Alcatel-Lucent said that it has been selected by Sichuan Telecom, a subsidiary of China Telecom, to upgrade its WAP Gateway to an integrated WAP and Web Gateway system in Sichuan Province in the southwest of China. The contract was secured through Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, Alcatel-Lucent’s Chinese company.
According to Alcatel-Lucent, by deploying Alcatel-Lucent’s WAP and Web Gateway services, it will be able to build transportation hub of HTTP and WAP service to enable mobile internet access without installing any terminal software for the mobile phone subscribers.
In addition, WAP and Web Gateway will enable Sichuan Telecom to develop more diversified and personalised services to enhance its subscribers web-surfing experiences. Alcatel-Lucent deployed the WAP and Web Gateway as an independent system in the operators’ network, the company said.
Olivia Qiu, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities in East Asia and Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, said: “China Telecom has been a long-term partner for Alcatel-Lucent in various areas. Sichuan Telecom’s selection of our WAP and Web Gateway solution further consolidates our leading position in the mobile internet service area. Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell is devoted to providing our customers with the most advanced and customised application services.”
