Company Now Leads the Industry in Providing 2.3GHz Pico Base Stations

5 May 2009, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (“ZTE” - H share stock code: 00763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ) a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has achieved another corporate milestone by becoming the first in the industry to offer Wave2-based 2.3GHz Pico base station 9200. This feat is expected to further enhance and expand the WiMAX equipment supply chain for the industry.

The E9200 base station has a compact size of 260mm×200mm×65mm, the same size as an ordinary telephone, which makes installation much easier. It allows high-speed transmissions with a downstream rate at 30Mbps. In high-density regions, it can flexibly overcome coverage hurdles, offering a reliable all-scenario solution. The deployment of ZTE’s 2.3GHz Pico base station will further help operators to effectively improve signal coverage, accelerate network deployment, and reduce network-building costs by about 20%.

“As a trusted partner of several global operators, ZTE focuses on providing a wide range of solutions to meet the needs of international customers and remain in line with their business objectives to rapidly deploy stable networks at the lowest cost. We are proud to achieve another industry first, a clear manifestation of our strong commitment to the industry,” said Zhao Songpu, General Manager of WiMAX Products, ZTE Corporation. “With our technology innovations and proven track record, we’ve accumulated in-depth expertise in addressing coverage issues in various network environments.”

Offering the industry’s most comprehensive WiMAX product portfolio, ZTE provides flexible solutions across 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz bands designed to meet the needs of a wide range of application scenarios including rural areas, desert, forests, urban commercial zones, office premises, shopping malls, household and subways.

“The opportunities outweigh the risks, and we are optimistic about the challenges in spite of the current global crisis. Over the last two years, the WiMAX industry has grown rapidly and the industry’s supply chain has gradually reached its maturity. As of Q1 this year, we’ve observed that the global WiMAX market has entered a period of practical development and stable growth punctuated by a series of commercial network rollouts worldwide, which are positive signs for future growth,” added Mr. Zhao.

According to an In-Stat industry report, last year an additional 94 WiMAX commercial networks were deployed globally of which 15 were built by ZTE, making it the second largest WiMAX supplier in the world. ZTE is also one of the 17 WiMAX Forum Board members and has been a strong promoter and a critical player of the WiMAX ecosystem.

As of Q1 2009, ZTE has deployed 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz WiMAX commercial networks for over 40 operators in 26 countries worldwide.
