ZTE Corporation, (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced that a 4G (LTE) network constructed for Uzbekistan mobile operator UCell (trademark of FE COSCOM LLC) - a subsidiary of TeliaSonera telecommunications group and one of the pioneers deploying the LTE network within the Commonwealth of Independent States area - has been successfully deployed with ZTE’s prominent SDR technology and Uni-RAN solution. The network is able to achieve a downloading peak rate of up to 100 Mbps.

With ZTE’s industry leading SDR (Software Defined Radio) solution, UCell will be able to provide superior 4G services for its subscribers. During the test in the nation’s capital Tashkent, ZTE and UCell demonstrated high-speed Internet access, streaming video, file uploads and downloads, Internet browsing and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services by using ZTE‘s LTE equipment.

"We are proud that Uzbekistan has become one of the few countries in the world utilising the 4G network. As part of TeliaSonera, a company with over a hundred years of experience in telecommunications, we are committed to delivering state-of-the art technologies and an excellent wireless data experience to our customers," commented UCell Chief Executive Oguz Memiguven.
