NEC's Super-Small Microwave Communication System PASOLINK Achieves No. 1 Global Market Share in 3Q of CY2007

  • 19 January, 2008 10:28

<p>NEC Corporation today announced that it has been named the world's leading microwave communication-system company by industry analysts (1). NEC ranked No.1 in the third quarter of CY2007 with a total global share of 31%. The period is the first in which NEC earned the leading position, which can mainly be attributed to robust sales in Asia and the Middle East accompanying the expansion of mobile phone markets overseas.
Construction and expansion of mobile network infrastructure is being carried out at a rapid pace in Asian and Middle Eastern countries with the sharp increase in mobile phone subscribers. "This is a milestone for our company, and we are proud of this achievement," said Hiroya Nakata, General Manager of Global Network Division, NEC Corporation. "Our strong growth in microwave communication systems proves that our PASOLINK products are highly evaluated for their superior performance by major mobile carriers across the globe."
PASOLINK has also enjoyed strong growth in regions other than Asia and the Middle East due to the start of service by mobile carriers with newly acquired licenses and an increase in mergers and acquisitions by global operators. Simultaneously, in the area of fixed communication, corporate user demand for data communication has been increasing as a result of the active advancement of broadband access. NEC's PASOLINK products and solutions can effectively support the needs of both fixed and mobile communications and it will continue to deliver PASOLINK solutions worldwide to further expand its wireless network business.
Since its launch in the early 1980's, NEC has been promoting research, development and sales of PASOLINK. Accompanying the rapid growth of mobile markets worldwide, PASOLINK has enjoyed favourable sales as a communication system to connect the base stations of mobile communication carriers. The system's unmatched performance is proved by the 700,000 PASOLINK units that NEC has shipped to over 700 customers in 131 countries (2).
As the leading microwave access systems-company, NEC will continue to proactively promote development and sales of PASOLINK to support the rapidly-growing demand for superior-class communication systems.
PASOLINK is a trademark of NEC Corporation.
