Datang Telecom (officially Datang Telecom Technology & Industry Group) is a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment company headquartered in Beijing, China. It was founded in September 1998 by the China Academy of Telecommunication Technology. It is best known for its leading role in developing the Chinese TD-SCDMA 3G mobile telecommunications standard through subsidiary Datang Mobile.
Datang Telecom Technology Co., Ltd., a Datang Telecom subsidiary, is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
In March 2012, Datang Telecom agreed to acquire three companies: TD-SCDMA chip maker Leadcore Technology, handset design and manufacturing company Shanghai Uniscope Technologies, and its subsidiary Qidong Uniscope Electronics; Datang already held a 51 percent stake in Shanghai Uniscope.
Datang's areas of business include high-capacity digital switching, optical networking, data communication and digital microwave communication equipment and software and system integration services. However, revenue from these sectors is far outweighed by the company's spending on TD-SCDMA research and product development, and in recent years the company has taken out a series of heavy loans from state-owned Chinese banks to fund this development.
