ZTE wins Chinese LTE deal
ZTE has won a contract with China Mobile Hong Kong Limited (CMHK) to construct a LTE-TDD network in the territory. As part of the contract, ZTE will provide LTE-TDD solutions to CMHK, including SDR BTS (software defined radio base stations), terminals, network planning, integration and network optimisation. The jointly constructed network will be Hong Kong’s central network, covering Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. CMHK is a wholly owned subsidiary of China Mobile Limited. CMHK received its Hong Kong LTE-TDD license in February 2012 for the 2330MHz-2360MHz of 30MHz frequencies. At the 2012 GTI Asia Conference in Shanghai, CMHK announced that it will provide LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD services based on its dual-mode LTE-TDD/FDD network by the end of this year. CMHK launched its LTE-FDD network in Hong Kong in April 2012.
