ZTE, a publicly listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has bagged a national 2G/3G wireless network project in Peru with mobile operator Viettel.
During the first phase of the project, ZTE will build more than 2000 base stations. As part of the contract, ZTE will provide its innovative Uni-RAN solution to Viettel. This solution includes a series of products based on SDR technology, which enables operators to deploy their networks in a smarter, more efficient way. SDR-built networks can combine multiple modes and evolve to next generation networks seamlessly. ZTE will also provide operation management services such as its radio network optimization network tool to Viettel. The completed network will cover all of Peru.
“In 2009, ZTE became Viettel’s first 3G networking equipment supplier in Vietnam,” said Pu Yingchun, ZTE GSM/UMTS Product Lines General Manager. “We are excited to help Viettel enter the South American market for the first time and we are confident that this new contract will help it grow further in the region.”
Due to its advanced SDR technology, ZTE has won contracts from many top multinational operators, including France Telecom, Telefonica, Telenor, Teliasonera, Etisalat, Hutchison, Telstra, KPN, and MTN. ZTE’s Uni-RAN solutions are key profit drivers for operators. To date, ZTE’s SDR equipment has been used by over 120 operators in more than 100 countries across the globe.
