Motorola gets $43m order from Tata Tele
MUMBAI: Motorola said on its Web site it would provide Tata Teleservices, a unit of India's second-largest business group, the Tatas, with code division multiple access (CDMA)-based 1X networks for the western states of Maharashtra and Goa and the financial hub, Bombay.
"These circles are amongst the more profitable and progressive telecom circles," Pramod Saxena, president of Motorola's Indian operations, said.
Telecoms sector, billed as one of the fastest growing markets globally in this decade, is carved into 22 circles or zones classified as "metro" and "A", "B" and "C" circles, based on subscriber potential.
The sector was thrown open to foreign competition in the mid-1990s and has attracted a clutch of global telecoms giants mainly because of a low penetration of 4.5 telephones per 100 citizens compared with a global average of 15.
The unlisted Tata Teleservices has rolled out fixed-line and limited mobility or wireless in local loop services, which work on CDMA technology, in six Indian states.
