  • Taiwan Telecom Suppliers See Big Sales in 1998
  • December 30, 1998 (TAIPEI) -- Telecommunication systems companies Taiwan International Standard Electronics Ltd. (TISE), Lucent Technologies Taiwan Telecommunications Co., Ltd. and Taicom Systems Ltd. reported strong sales in 1998.
    They were helped mainly by Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd. and the deregulation of the telecommunications industry in Taiwan.

    TISE, which took in NT$4 billion in sales for all of 1997, reported more than NT$5 billion for the first 10 months of this year alone. It expects NT$7 billion for the full year, marking a record high.

    TISE was chosen as a major supplier for Chunghwa Telecom this year. It won a bid to construct an intelligent network for the company, and another bid to upgrade local calls, as part of its efforts to cope with the millennium bug. The company also supplies switching equipment for local calls in China.

    Taicom Systems expects NT$7.528 billion in sales this year, up a noticeable 70 percent from 1997. The company won orders for the construction of base stations from Pacific Cellular Corp. and another major cell phone company. Pacific plans to purchase equipment to service more than 2,400 base stations. Taicom also won a portion of Chunghwa's orders to upgrade local calls.

    Lucent reported NT$2 billion in sales for the first nine months of this year. The company won base station construction orders from KG Telecom and other private telecom firms.
