O2 Germany has chosen Huawei Technologies as one of its partners to almost double the coverage of its mobile network. The agreement includes the replacement of base stations and the construction of more than 8,000 new base stations to support GSM and UMTS.

At the same time, the data transmission infrastructure is to be expanded  by 60% and the company will expand the HSDPA network (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) and implement HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) based on Huawei's technology.

Huawei is expected to complete the work by the end of next year.
