ZTE Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock
code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of
telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has
signed a contract with Slovak operator SWAN for a nationwide LTE network
ZTE will exclusively construct core CS/PS
(circuit-switched/packet-switched) network, and a GSM/LTE mobile
communications and VAS (value added services) network, involving over
1,100 dual-mode GSM/LTE base stations to SWAN.
SWAN was granted the fourth wireless operator license in Slovakia in
January 2014, and plans to build more than 1,100 GSM and LTE base
stations within three years.
ZTE and SWAN have established a strong partnership, with ZTE taking the
lead in substantial network development projects. ZTE will be using its
industry-leading SDR (software-defined radio) solutions to provide
seamless dual-mode GSM/LTE communications across the country. To manage
mobile communications across SWAN's spectrum structure, ZTE will use
full-bandwidth, high-power RRUs (remote radio units) to avoid spectrum
fragmentation and to deliver high bandwidth and LTE frequency
adjustment. The ZTE network's ability to simply evolve to LTE-A will
protect SWAN's existing investment and help the operator to respond
quickly to competitive challenges.
Mr. Xie Junshi, CTO of ZTE Europe and America, said, "ZTE is looking
forward to helping develop SWAN's presence in Slovakia and to providing
the most advanced high-speed communications to upport SWAN grow and
succeed in this highly competitive market. Through this project, ZTE and
SWAN will enter a closer long-term strategic partnership."
