About NEC’s PASOLINK
NEC launched its first PASOLINK product in the mid 1980s, supplying 18GHz PASOLINK systems to a leading telecom operator in the UK. Since then, business has expanded to a worldwide scale. Recently, due to the rapid expansion of mobile networks, many operators have been deploying PASOLINK to connect radio base stations to facilitate the rapid and simple installation of mobile infrastructure. Sales of NEC’s PASOLINK exceeded 50,000 units in FY 2000, and 200,000 units in FY 2004. Recently, sales numbers have been rapidly expanding due to large-scale, long-term contracts with mobile operators and exceeded 300,000 in FY 2005. The rapid growth of NEC’s PASOLINK business is attributable to NEC’s long-standing experience, competence, advanced and high-quality technologies, and its leading position in the global microwave communication systems market.
