SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (Shenzhen: 000063, Hong Kong:0763), China's largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless solutions provider, has clinched a WCDMA contract with Indigo Tajikistan, a joint venture belonging to the American multinational carrier MCT. The project is also ZTE's first WCDMA contract in Central Asia and marks a groundbreaking competitive win over other global telecoms equipment providers.

Under the contract, ZTE will deliver a complete WCDMA system based on UMTS R4, including MSC, MGW, HLR, SGSN, GGSN, RNC and Node B equipment. The system to be built is based on a unified all-IP switching platform, guaranteeing its consistency and reliability, and ensuring ease of maintenance and a smooth evolution from R99 to R4 and to R5.

The system features ultra-high capacity and high integrity, with the ability of serving two million subscribers by three MGW servers or a single MSC Server. It also supports multiple and flexible networking modes such as IP, ATM and TDM.

ZTE will also deliver new WCDMA terminals to help Indigo launch services such as wireless Internet access, streaming media and videoconferencing services.

"ZTE enjoys a very good reputation in the Tajikistan market. By virtue of the excellent performance of equipment presently in service, as well as post-sales service which we believe is superior to its rivals, we chose ZTE as the supplier for our WCDMA project," said Richard F. Seney, CEO of MCT Russia.

"The project will initially serve 10,000 subscribers and enable Indigo to deliver new services such as streaming media, high-speed wireless Internet access and video calling - all to be launched at the beginning of next year," added Mr. Yu Hongkai, ZTE chief representative in Tajikistan.
