September 21, 2009

TriQuint Semiconductor, a leading RF product manufacturer and foundry services provider, announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, to supply driver amplifiers and related products for new optical transport systems. As a strategic partner, TriQuint will work closely with Huawei to develop higher-speed and wider-bandwidth networks solutions with lower power consumption for operators worldwide.

TriQuint was selected due to its comprehensive product portfolio and green technologies. In addition to the MOU, the product development roadmaps of both TriQuint and Huawei will be aligned to enhance the competitiveness of their products. “We are impressed with TriQuint’s high-quality products and professional technical support,” said Qinya Hua, Manager of Transport Networks, Huawei. “Huawei is always on the look out for advanced technology that allows operators to meet network optimization challenges in reducing TCO (total cost ownership) through lower power consumption.”

“TriQuint looks forward to supporting Huawei’s development and deployment of next-generation 40Gb/s optical networks as well as the evolution of ultra high-speed 100 Gb/s networks. Our optical amplifiers have set a standard for high performance, efficiency and customer value that are in sync with Huawei’s requirements for ‘greener’, high-efficiency data transport systems,” said Brian P. Balut, TriQuint Vice President, Networks.
