ZTE signs TD-LTE deal with China Mobile Hong Kong

Telecom Lead Asia: ZTE has won a TD-LTE deal from China
Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK).

The Chinese telecom equipment maker will provide LTE-TDD
solutions to CMHK, including SDR BTS, terminals, network planning, integration
and network optimization.

The jointly constructed network will be Hong Kong’s
central network, covering Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.

CMHK received its Hong Kong LTE-TDD license in February
2012 for the 2330MHz-2360MHz of 30MHz frequencies.

CMHK will provide LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD services based on
its dual-mode LTE-TDD/FDD network by end of this year.

CMHK had previously launched its LTE-FDD
network in Hong Kong in April 2012.

ZTE is an advanced LTE solutions provider. We are
excited to work with the company to construct the LTE-TDD/FDD dual-mode
network in Hong Kong,” said Sean Lee, Director and CEO of China Mobile
Hong Kong.

Hong Kong has one of the world’s most advanced and
competitive mobile communications markets. There are already four LTE networks
in the territory. ZTE is honored to have the opportunity construct a central
network there,” said Zhang Jianguo, ZTE Vice President and CTO of the APAC and
CIS Regions.

As of April 2012, ZTE had deployed TD-LTE trials and
commercial networks for 33 leading operators in 19 countries, and won eight large-scale
LTE-TDD commercial contracts.

On June 13, 2012, ZTE and leading multinational operator
Hi3G Access AB won the Global Telecoms Business Global Innovation Award for LTE
Infrastructure for their jointly constructed TDD/FDD dual-mode network in Sweden.
