Datang Telecom Group (officially Datang Telecom Technology & Industry Group) is a Chinese telecommunications equipment group headquartered in Beijing, China. The group was founded in September 1998 by the China Academy of Telecommunications Technology, which acted as the parent company of the group. It is best known for its leading role in developing the Chinese TD-SCDMA 3G mobile telecommunications standard through subsidiary DT Mobile (formerly known as Datang Mobile).

Datang Telecom Technology Co., Ltd. (SSE: 600198), a Datang Telecom subsidiary, is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.


Datang Telecom Group was founded in September 1998 by the China Academy of Telecommunications Technology.[2] The academy itself was founded in 1957. In 1998 a limited company Datang Telecom Technology was also incorporated and floated in the Shanghai Stock Exchange on 21 October 1998.

In April 2007, Datang secured a 36.6% share of China Mobile's first large-scale TD-SCDMA network construction contracts.[3]

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.[4]

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.[5][6]
