By December 2011 the new plant has already released 1,000 base stations Flexi Multiradio 10.
At the moment, no more than a dozen companies in the world can produce equipment with support for fourth-generation LTE. And now the production of the special economic zone "Tomsk" — among them.
We are proud that we were the first to begin production in the Russian equipment LTE. Thanks to this, Russian operators will be able to use high-quality equipment 4G. Innovative technologies and optimized manufacturing processes have created a solid foundation for this important achievement, production start date LTE base stations labeled "Made in Russia".
