China GrenTech, a Shenzhen-based developer of radio frequency (RF) components and wireless equipment, has won the right to build indoor mobile systems at the Olympic Games stadiums in Beijing. Nasdaq-listed China GrenTech said it would start construction this quarter to support China Mobile, the mainland's largest mobile network operator and the official wireless services provider at the 2008 summer Olympics. Financial terms were not disclosed. 'Being selected as the partner of China Mobile for the Olympics telecommunication network construction project is a testament to China Mobile's confidence in our research and development capabilities and project management skills in wireless coverage products,' said Gao Yingjie, president and chief executive at GrenTech. 'This successful bid not only provides a significant business opportunity for GrenTech, but will also enhance its brand and status in the industry, laying the ground for future co-operation on 3G coverage projects.' There are about 40 stadiums and gymnasiums with different architectural styles that make up the Beijing Games venues. All will offer third generation wireless coverage. GrenTech will provide equipment and related services for the indoor coverage systems, supporting Global System for Mobile and 3G networks at the stadiums. The company uses RF technology to design and develop wireless coverage products, such as low-power fibre-optic repeaters and 3G wireless coverage equipment for long-span structures. These enable operators to expand the reach of their wireless networks to indoor areas such as tunnels and building interiors, and to outdoor locations such as highways, railways and remote regions. GrenTech has completed more than 6,000 wireless coverage projects for China Mobile since 2001.
