TD-SCDMA Commercial Experimental Network Brings Energy for the Telecom Supply Power

Telecom power supply is the key infrastructure for communications network. Buyers include not only telecom operators, but also telecom equipment manufactures. China’s TD-SCDMA commercial network would speed up the explosion of the telecom supply power market. In the early 2007, China Mobile launched ‘TD-SCDMA commercial experimental network’ in the following eight cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Shenyang, Qinhuangdao, Xiamen, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. China Telecom and China Netcom have also begun enlarging TD-SCDMA network capacities, together spending about 1 billion RMB in the field.

China Mobile targets to spend about 24 billions RMB in this public bidding, among which 20 billions would be used for system equipment and 4 billions for TD-SCDMA mobile phone networking. The scale of TD-SCDMA commercial experimental network is almost the same as the initial CDMA2000 network constructed by China Unicom, comprising 15,000 base stations with the network capacity of more than 10,000,000 user lines to support more several millions end users. Among these 15,000 base stations are 8602 outdoor base stations and 3772 indoor distributed system. The planned number of TD-SCDMA base stations amounted 70 percents of GSM base stations in these eight cities, which covers an area of 95 percents of current network.

In Beijing, in order to ensure the availability of 3G services during the Olympic Games, China Mobile targets to build 2059 outdoor base stations and 1015 indoor distributed systems, a portion of 23.94% and 26.91% in this bidding respectively. To avoid interference between different TD-SCDMA experimental networks, networks built by China Netcom would be brought into China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA commercial experimental network.

Launch of 3G Gives New Opportunities to China’s Telecom Power Supply Market

The total number of 3G base stations would total 350,000 in China’s 3G constructions. Taking updating and substitution of existing equipment into account, the telecom power supply market will increase fast in the near future. The average cost of a typical base station is about 860,000 RMB, including the accessory equipment. In general, a base station will company with a suit of telecom power supply. It is obvious that 3G investments will enlarge the demand on the telecom power supply.

According to CCID Consulting, investment on 3G network equipment in the 3 years following the release of 3G license will be 36.36, 33 and 28.77 billions RMB respectively, and the investment on 3G projects will be 80.81, 82.50 and 84.61 billions RMB respectively. The 3G mobile phones market will be 69.3, 87.6 and 96.6 billions RMB. Hence, for telecom equipment manufactures such as ZTE and Emerson, the launch of 3G means not only a bigger market, but also a change in market competition.

Telecom Power Supply Market Brand Keeping Steady

In 2007 Q3, the mainstream manufactures in telecom power supply market remained the same with names such as Emerson, ZTE, Delta-Cimic, DPC and Postel. Emerson kept a leading position in the market because of advanced technologies and good relationship with operators. On the other hand, ZTE achieved good revenue benefiting from its total telecom solutions. Delta-Cimic performed well in R&D, channels and services and better revenues could be expected in Q4. DPC began to turn around to other power supply products and just kept its position in the telecom field. Postel, as a traditional brand in telecom power supply, snatched the fifth position in the market competition and better revenues could also be expected.
