ZTE Corporation, a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has announced it has successfully completed interoperability testing of LTE / EPC (Evolved Packet Core) for German operator E-Plus within the LTE trial network of E-Plus.

During the testing process, the data transfer took place on the LTE1800 standard, which is one of the main internationally recognized frequency bands for LTE. As a leading LTE end-to-end solutions provider, ZTE provided EPC core network infrastructure equipment for E-Plus and successfully completed multi-vendor integration testing with several Ericsson LTE base stations as part of the E-Plus LTE trial network.

The EPC core network, based on ZTE’s unified high-performance hardware platform which supports 2G/3G/4G wireless access, reduces total cost of ownership for operators, as well as substantially increasing their mobile broadband market competitiveness. The successful interoperability testing based on the E-Plus LTE trial network further confirms the strong interoperability, compatibility and stability of ZTE’s EPC equipment.

E-Plus is one of four mobile operators in Germany and is a wholly owned German subsidiary of the Netherlands KPN Group. E-Plus holds the nationwide GSM / UMTS / HSPA network in Germany and purchased LTE frequencies in 2010. E-Plus is responsible for implementing advanced wireless technology to enhance the quality of the network and provides users with a wireless broadband data services experience.

"All of the tests conducted have a central goal, which is to offer customers an optimal web browsing experience, anytime, anywhere," said Rafal Markiewicz, Chief Technology Officer, E-Plus Group.

“ZTE provides an open and flexible LTE end-to-end solution that supports multi-mode multi-band network construction to meet network operators’ roll-out needs. In the past few years, ZTE has been working in the 3G field with E-Plus to offer continuous service and support for the network," said Xu Ziyang, vice president, ZTE.

ZTE’s Uni-RAN solution is in service with 150 operators around the world. Till now, ZTE has 38 commercial LTE contracts globally, helping Bharti Airtel, China Mobile, Hutchison, Softbank, Telenor, Telstra, Zain and other advanced global operators to successfully construct large scale LTE networks. ZTE has also deployed LTE trial networks with more than 100 operators worldwide.
