Regional deployments at forefront of telecoms evolution

ZTE Corporation, the fastest growing global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced that it has become the leading provider of CDMA and related technologies to Central Asia. As the number of regional deployments climb, ZTE continues to fulfill its role of innovating to create sustainable, future-proofed telecoms frameworks that offer scalability and greatly improved communications access for end-users. ZTE now has deployments and on-going projects in more than seven Central Asian countries including Russia and its native China.

In the past year alone, ZTE has brought some of the world´s most advanced telecommunications technology to the region, working on UMTS and NGN projects for Indigo, Tajikistan and Tajiktelecom respectively as well as pre-WiMAX and CDMA projects in Pakistan and Uzbekistan. Most recently, as the first vendor with the capability to successfully deploy CDMA2000 solutions with EV-DO Rev. A for commercial use globally, ZTE announced the world´s first commercial contract for construction of a CDMA2000 EV-DO Rev. A network for Mongolia´s largest CDMA mobile operator Skytel.

"We have covered many of the regions capitals from Tashkent to Islamabad with state-of-the-art telecoms networking technology designed to provide enhanced voice, data and value added services," said Mr Yu Changpu, Regional Manager of ZTE Central Asia. "Central Asia is a pioneer of telecoms projects that leapfrog infrastructure constraints and which enable next-generation communications through new means. Our many deployments, including the marriage of CDMA with IP, show not only our strategic focus on the region, but highlight Central Asia as a world leader in developing and implementing projects that make its vision of being at the forefront of global telecommunications both immediate and real" .

R&D continues to play a crucial role in helping ZTE to maintain its strong position with operators and grow its market share accordingly. As testament to this, adoption of ZTE technology in Central Asia is distinguished by being some of the first to appear on the global stage, unmatched by other vendors who have no comparative offering on their product roadmap.

"We are committed to building telecoms functionality and redressing the balance between traditional access issues and communications spend," continued Mr Yu. "The region´s countries represent a key market for us where we continue to offer the distinct advantages of cost-efficiency and quality and where we will continue to enable operators to customise an extended range of integrated services for end-users, allowing tomorrow´s communications to take shape today."

There will be a special focus on Central Asia in China this month when six Presidents from the member states of the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) - China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan - visit the city to attend the 2006 SCO Summit for regional development. Shanghai is also the site of a ZTE R&D facility.
