SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced it has been selected by Telenor Pakistan (TP) to provide an array of equipment to assist in the construction of Pakistan’s ‘Turnkey’ 2/3/4/G national network upgrade and extension project.

As part of the project, ZTE will provide 18,000 network stations and corresponding CNs (core networks), VAS (value-added services), bearer network, green power and supporting facilities. The project will also swap the existing 7,500 GSM stations for 1,500 GSM new base stations, 7,000 HSPA base stations and 2,000 LTE base stations. Construction will take place between 2012 and 2017. In 2012, ZTE will begin expanding and enhancing TP’s wireless network with the goal of achieving GSM, UMTS and LTE network upgrades and integration within 5 years.

ZTE will also provide full network operation management and end-to-end service network optimisation services for TP. This will help the operator achieve significant improvements in network quality, allowing it to focus on its market operation services and enhancing its market share.

“Telenor Pakistan is extremely pleased to partner with ZTE on this network upgrade,” said Telenor Pakistan CEO Lars Christian Iuel. “As a long-term investor in Pakistan, we are eager to upgrade our network to meet the increasing customer needs. Telenor Pakistan looks forward to working with ZTE to ensure our customers receive superior network quality and next generation services.”
