SAN JOSE, Calif. -- ZTE Corporation, the leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has announced today, the signing of its first commercial contract in Georgian for construction of a CDMA WLL network. United Telecom of Georgia (UTG) is the largest fixed line operator in Georgia and agreement with it signifies the success of ZTE in opening a doorway for itself in Georgian market.

The network, based on ZTE’s mature All-IP CDMA solution which enables wireless data transmission, better QoS (Quality of Service) and improved data service applications, will support a wide variety of data rich multi-media applications for UTG subscribers upon completion by August 2007. Whereas the phase 1 network is expected to mainly provision voice and 1X data services for over 100,000 subscribers from Kakheti region of west Georgia.

"We’re preparing to be a comprehensive operator, and this is our first time to adopt CDMA for a WLL network," noted Mr Jorg Schmolinski, CEO of UTG, “We have been impressed with the strength and depth of ZTE’s CDMA technology expertise, that is the reason why we eventually chose it."

“ZTE’s All-IP CDMA solution is a carrier-class hardware platform providing open interfaces, advanced NGN Softswitch technology and powerful functionality. Importantly, these features provide the necessary degree of compatibility for the new network to be integrated with the operator’s existing fixed-line infrastructure “, said Mr Yan Tingxiang, Chief Representative of ZTE Georgian. “The IP-based A interface enables more flexible network deployment and transmission and substantial cost savings for bandwidth transmission between the Media Gateway and Base Station Controller.”
