("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has been selected by T-Mobile International to provide Packet Switched Core Networks (PS-CN) across five key European countries: Germany, the UK, Austria, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic. This is an important collaboration for Huawei and T-Mobile, indicating an effective partnership between the two companies.
