SHENZHEN, China, -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, and Canadian operator Public Mobile today announced their collaboration to build a commercial CDMA network in Canada. The network is designed to provide mobile service to 19 million potential customers across the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.

ZTE has partnered with Public Mobile to design, build and operate the end-to-end CDMA network including wireless, core network, service platforms and IP architecture. ZTE is also supplying Public Mobile with handsets.

As part of the agreement, ZTE is deploying over 1,000 base stations for the network, as well as the industry’s first 5+5MHz-based customized solution for personalized communications systems (PCS) to provide extended G block frequency band on CDMA system equipment and terminals.

“ZTE offers a wide range of high quality products, competitive network construction, maintenance costs, and competitive financing,” said Public Mobile CEO Alek Krstajic. “Their extensive real-world experience and ability to smoothly evolve networks to LTE was very compelling for Public Mobile’s future growth.”
