The agreement between Huawei and Bite was signed on June 11 in
Shanghai, China, at the Pavilion of Latvia during World Expo
Cooperation is established for a period of 5 years, however, most investment
is going to be made already this year by changing all equipment on existing
base stations.

Key customer benefits area:

o Wider network coverage with the same number of base stations

o Better sound quality -- feeling that a person talking to you on the phone
is right next to you

o Faster speed for mobile transmissions (up to 21/5.8 download/ upload
MB per second)

o 60% of 3G network till the end of 2010
Additionally and within Bite commitment to be an environmentally
friendly company (Bite Green) -- we plan to achieve 35% decreased
energy consumption, less base stations needed to cover larger
territory (less emissions, less energy consumptions, less sites building)

All existing equipment that ensures voice and data services will be changed to
Huawei equipment by November 2010
The equipment -- there are 2 main elements that is important to emphasize
among all the new equipment

o Remote Radio Unit (RRU) - One of the key differentiated features
of the new equipment is that the UMTS radio component instead
of being part of the installation at the shelter it is installed on
top of the tower, by the antennas. These are the RRUs and
we install 3 RRU per BTS, one per cell. This RRU equipment
is resistant to extreme temperatures, including -35C and
+50C, which is fundamental as all the equipment is outdoors.
o Use one multi-standard base station instead of two separate base
stations for different standards is one of the key differences. With
previous vendor we had a cabinet (base station) per technology /
bearer (2G/EDGE, 3G). As you can see on the Huawei case, this
very small in size piece of equipment is capable to handle both
technologies in one box and when we will move to LTE, we won't
need to add any additional equipment. We will just need to include a
software upgrade and probably add some more power units and then
we will have a LTE enabled BTS.
With this equipment we will be able to improve coverage, deploy new
technologies faster in the near future and reduce CO2 emissions.

Finally all the installed new equipment will provide data transfer speeds
not seen in Latvia (and in fact ion very few places in Europe) until today.
