ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, announced that the company was awarded with an exclusive contract by Vinaphone for radio spectrum refarming, to optimise services and facilitate future network planning in central Vietnam.

ZTE will develop solutions for Vinaphone to re-allocate spectrum resources in the 900MHz frequency band, as well as help Vinaphone expand network capacity in the 2100MHz frequency band. Vinaphone will be using ZTE’s advanced distributed software defined radio (SDR) base stations, unified MicroTCA platform, as well as new remote radio units (RRUs), and unified hardware platform and network management system.

ZTE will help Vinaphone, the third-largest operator in Vietnam with more than 26 percent market share; reallocate some of its GSM-designated spectrum to provide universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) services.

ZTE’s solutions allow for fast installation, with the additional advantage of simplifying network maintenance. The project is expected to complete in 2016, involving networks that cover around a third of Vietnam’s area and about 20 million users.
