Motorola wins supply deal from Saudi carrier

The Saudi affiliate of Mobile Telecommunications has awarded Motorola a contract to supply it with radio network equipment, a Reuters report said.

'Motorola will supply us with the radio network, it represents 30 % of the total infrastructure we need,' Marwan al-Ahmadi, Zain Saudi Arabia's CEO was quoted by the report as saying.

He declined to give a value for the deal saying it will be announced in due course, the Reuters report said.

Nokia Siemens Networks said earlier that it had won an order worth $935 million from Zain Saudi Arabia to build second- and third-generation mobile networks.

'Ericsson and Huawei were bidding for the two contracts won by Nokia and Motorola,' the executive told Reuters.
