ZTE Bags Reliance Communication’s 3G Network Contract

Reliance Communications (RCOM), India’s single largest dual technology telecom operator and ZTE corporation the global telecommunications solutions provider today announced the signing of a commercial contract to deploy the new 3G-UMTS/GSM network for Reliance Mobile.

Under the agreement, ZTE will build and supply 3G-UMTS equipment for 8 telecom circles of Reliance Mobile, out of a total 13 circles.

In this project, the network to be deployed by ZTE for Reliance is based on the standard SDR platform (the 2G/3G/HSPA/HSPA+ unified platform), which can not only realize multiple modes for a single base-station, but also evolve smoothly into next generation networks (NGNs) like LTE.

This provides a powerful guarantee for cost-effective networking and future evolution of the overall project. Technologically speaking, ZTE’s green base-stations are already the most advanced in the industry.

“The collaboration between ZTE and Reliance is a key milestone for ZTE in India for 2010. For this project, we will deploy a solution able to seamlessly accommodate 2G and 3G networks on the same platform, which is also capable of evolving into future 4G network,” said a key ZTE spokesperson.

“Prior to this, the technology had been widely adopted in China itself as well as overseas markets such as Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. We are very confident of our cooperation with Reliance, and our ability to bring advanced solutions and services to our other clients. As always, ZTE will continue to invest in and address the India market, and treat Indian accounts as our global strategic partners.”
