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, and Wireless City Planning (WCP) today announced they have entered into a strategic partnership to use AXGP -- a technology similar to TD-LTE -- to build a next-generation mobile network in Japan. WCP is a SOFTBANK Corp. (“SoftBank”)’s Group Company, one of the major mobile operators in Japan.

ZTE was chosen by WCP as its primary strategic partner for AXGP. Once complete, the planned network will reach 99 percent of Japan ordinance-designated city populations.

The two companies also will explore the possibility of creating a joint lab to develop emerging technologies, drive development of next generation technologies including AXGP, and grow the global reach of AXGP.

With its SDR platform, ZTE provides stronger base-band processing capability when compared to other equipment providers. This allows the company to provide exclusive joint cell processing technology and interference-eliminating technology.
