China Mobile has released a strategy for the outsourcing of system equipment and complementary equipment with energy-saving and emission reduction features, and a total of 15 manufacturers have become potential bidders for this initiative.
China Mobile's president Wang Jianzhou previously presided over a meeting in which he asked that resource utility be improved in the field of mobile communications to ensure the work on energy-saving and emissions control to be fully implemented.
The requirements that China Mobile has raised for network system equipment and complementary equipment manufacturers include reducing the quantity of materials used for equipment, reducing the weight of each piece of equipment, increasing equipment's integration capacity and lowering equipment's power costs.
So far, 15 manufacturers have signed a strategic partnership with China Mobile on what is called the Green Initiative. They are Alcatel, Huawei, Ericsson, Nokia-Siemens, AIR-SYS Refrigeration Engineering Technology Company, Emerson Network Power, Harbin Coslight Group, Jiangsu Shuangdeng Group, Comba, Mobi Antenna Technologies (Shenzhen) Company, China GrenTech, Wuhan Hongxin Telecommunication Technologies Company, Zhongli Technology, Zhongtian Technology Company and Delta-CIMIC Electronics Company.
