KTF to export wireless technology to TaiwanKTF, a local wireless service provider, is beginning to export its mobile communications technologies to other parts of Asia.
The company said yesterday that it signed a contract with VIBO Telecom, a communications firm based in Taipei, Taiwan, for a strategic alliance in which KTF will provide technology for its wireless evolution data-only service, its multimedia platform Fimm, and its marketing expertise.
KTF expects exports under this contract will amount to $15 million.
It also plans to pursue relationships with Compal Electronics, the handset manufacturer for VIBO, so that Korean cell phone makers can participate in new product developments.
VIBO Telecom Chairman Rock Hsu said that it would continue collaborating with KTF even after the service is commercialized in Taiwan.
This is KTF’s first major deal of this kind in Asia. Previous deals mainly involved consulting or content providing. KTF is currently offering marketing consulting services in mainland China and recently dispatched consultants to Reliance Infocom, one of the main mobile communications service providers in India.
