MegaFon agrees $600m deal with Huawei
MegaFon, the Russian telecoms operator, has acquired about $600m of equipment and maintenance services from China’s Huawei Technologies.

The seven-year contract between MegaFon and Huawei will “amount to dozens of billions of roubles”, according to the Russian company. It covers equipment for the construction and modernisation of networks, as well as software and maintenance.

Huawei is already one of the largest suppliers to MegaFon, having helped upgrade its 3G equipment and supported the “Eurasia” intercontinental high-speed network.

Wan Biao, president of Huawei’s Russia business, said the region was “one of the most promising” for the group. The deal comes as Russian companies are forging strong ties with China in the face of Western sanctions following Russia’s involvement in Ukraine.

MegaFon, the second-largest telecoms operator in Russia, said Huawei’s equipment was already widely used in its networks, and was acquired based on the total cost of the equipment and software.

The deal would “reduce significantly its operating expenses for network repair and maintenance”, said MegaFon, which is controlled by Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov.

Ivan Tavrin, chief executive, said: “The seven-year contract is an unprecedented case for the Russian business environment, as similar agreements in the market are generally limited to three years.

“It is highly important for us that Huawei cannot only provide best supply conditions but also guarantee stable long-term co-operation.”

俄罗斯电信运营商MegaFon向中国电信设备公司华为(Huawei)采购了价值约6亿美元的设备和维护服务。

根据MegaFon发布的消息,这家俄罗斯公司与华为签订了一份为期7年的合约,“总价值将达到数百亿卢布”,涵盖用于网络建设和更新换代的设备,以及软件和维护服务。

华为之前就是MegaFon最大的供应商之一,帮助MegaFon升级了3G设备,还支持了“欧亚大陆”洲际高速网络的建设。

华为在俄业务负责人万飚表示,该地区是华为集团“最有前途的市场之一”。达成这笔交易的背景是,俄罗斯卷入乌克兰危机后,面对西方制裁的俄罗斯公司纷纷与中国建立紧密联系。

MegaFon是俄罗斯第二大电信运营商,它表示自己的网络普遍采用华为设备,采购依据是设备及软件的总成本。

MegaFon表示这笔交易会“大大降低本公司修复和维护网络的运营开支”。该公司由俄罗斯亿万富翁阿利舍尔?乌斯马诺夫(Alisher Usmanov)控股。

首席执行官伊万?塔夫林(Ivan Tavrin)说:“这份7年合约在俄罗斯商业环境中是空前的,市场上类似协议的期限大多为3年。”

“华为不仅能提供最好的供货条件,而且能保证长期稳定合作,这对我们非常重要。”塔夫林说。
