The agreement brings together NextPoint, a newly formed company being created from the merger of NexTone and Reef Point, a leader in fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) border platforms and secure interconnectivity solutions, with ZTE, a leader and innovator in the delivery of innovative mobile technologies for next-generation networks in Asia and throughout the world, to provide an enhanced coverage solution for operators to offer their subscribers. NextPoint and ZTE will offer a joint solution that addresses the end to end requirements of UMTS operators in deploying femtocell solutions.

In addition to providing secured access connectivity over its IntelliConnect® System platform, NextPoint will provide technical training and customer support services to ZTE and its customers.
