RIYADH, (Reuters) – The Saudi affiliate of Mobile Telecommunications Co (Zain) said on Monday it has awarded Motorola a contract to supply it with radio network equipment.
“Motorola will supply us with the radio network, it represents 30 percent of the total infrastructure we need,” said Marwan al-Ahmadi, Zain saudi Arabia’s Chief Executive said.
He declined to give a value for the deal saying it will be announced in due course.
Nokia Siemens Networks said earlier on Monday that it had won an order worth $935 million from Zain Saudi Arabia to build second- and third-generation mobile networks.
“Ericsson and Huawei were bidding for the two contracts won by Nokia and Motorola,” he told Reuters.
