SHENZHEN, Cina -- Africa’s first CDMA2000-based NGN is to be installed by ZTE Corporation (Shenzhen: 000063, Hong Kong: 0763) following an agreement announced today with leading fixed-line operator Mundo Startel. Under the agreement, ZTE, China’s largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless solutions provider, will be the sole provider of the network.

The new network will bring more advanced telecommunications services, including voice, data and wireless broadband, to eight states across Angola. It will be the first time that ZTE installs an NGN based on an IP platform with CDMA2000 1x and EV-DO technology.

“Angola’s vast landscape and low population density has been one of the major challenges to the successful vendor. ZTE was able to present a cost-effective, tailor-made network which, combined with the Corporation’s strong R&D capability and leadership in NGN technology, offered the perfect solution. We look forward to developing a continuing working relationship with the company,” said Mr. Ernst Nitschke, managing director of Mundo Startel.
