Alcatel-Lucent has won a contract to supply its mobile backhaul solution to Verizon Wireless to support its 3G network and new LTE system. Alcatel-Lucent is already a provider of radio access and other equipment for the LTE deployment.

With China’s three big cellcos cutting back on network spending in 2010, analysts warn Ericsson will need to plug the revenue gap by growing sales in other markets, Bloomberg reports.

Alcatel-Lucent has replaced the head of its services unit. The current president, Andy Williams, has exited the company and will be replaced by Vivek Mohan, the boss of the India business.

India’s biggest operator, Bharti Airtel, will begin selling the iPhone 3GS on Friday.

Opera has submitted its Mini browser to the Apple App Store for approval.

Public Wireless and Ubiquisys say they have launched the first outdoor-specific metro femtocell product. The Public Wireless Colo-Node HSPA is designed to offer capacity relief for macro networks, and uses cable or DSL for the backhaul.

US wireless M2M provider Digi International will deploy Ericsson HSPA modules in select transport and connectivity M2M cellular gateways to handle new high-bandwidth applications like video surveillance.
