Denmark's RTX Telecom close to China breakthrough  

RTX Telecom in manufacturing agreement to produce chipset for Chinese version of 3G

North Jutland technology company RTX Telecom has taken a step closer to supplying mobile telephony to China by entering an agreement with a manufacturer who can produce RTX Telecom’s chipset for the Chinese version of 3G telephony. The chipset will be available as engineering samples by the end of 2003 and ready for mass production during the first half of 2004. It is expected that it will be the first chipset available for development of commercial TD-SCDMA handsets (TD-SCDMA is the nominal Chinese 3G standard – Ed).


The Chinese authorities must however first choose TD-SCDMA as the standard for developing 3G in China. But according to RTX Telecom MD Jørgen Elbæk this decision should take place very soon. The name of the chipset manufacturer with whom RTX Telecom has made an agreement has not yet been made public, but rumours in analyst circles suggest Infineon, one of the world’s largest chipset manufacturers. The news is reported by daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
