Reliance Communications To Split GSM Unit From CDMA

My GSM is better than your CDMA


Reliance Communications is aiming to separate the mobile phones growing GSM business from the CDMA operations.

Nilanjan Mukherjee, currently the chief marketing officer, is set to head the CDMA business of the company, which was once the second-largest mobile phone operator in India but has since slipped to fourth place. Former Bharti Airtel zonal head Ramesh Menon will be joining on Monday to handle the GSM business. The company may be looking for a buyer for its CDMA business given it has spectrum and certain assets that may be valuable to someone launching 3G services.

RCom had started with services on CDMA platform but began offering mobile services on GSM as well after operators were allowed to offer both technologies in 2008.
