SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions is exclusively developing Ethiopia’s nationwide network to cover 14 major cities in Ethiopia, including Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. This cooperation marks ZTE’s continuous success in penetrating Ethiopia, after reaching an agreement with ETC to help construct IP-backbone network late last year.

As part of the agreement, ZTE will help ETC establish two separate networks that will allow ETC to provide NGN and BTS related network services by deploying ZTE’s GSM bearer network optical solutions. ZTE will play a role in helping ETC to establish Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) by deploying ZXMP M800 high-end optical transmission equipment, and Access Network by using ZXMP M600, Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexer (CWDM) system with Fixed Service Access Gateway (SAG).ZTE’s ZXMP M600 is a highly integrated CWDM transmission system, supporting 18 wavelengths and a maximum rate of 2.7 Gb/s. It features an open multi-service access model and high flexibility in consolidating voice and data services.

Moreover, it can be widely deployed at the convergence and access layers of large-scale metro network, the backbone, convergence and access layers of small to medium sized metro network, as well as the private network of utility infrastructure. With its high deployment flexibility and large capacity, ZXMP M600 helps telecom carriers lower operating cost.

“With our state-of-the-art optical transmission solution, we believe we can provide a smooth transmission route for Ethiopia’s telecom network to help them satisfy their customers’ demands for multi-service transmission within GSM, CDMA, IP and fixed line. ZTE is committed to playing a key role in bolstering Ethiopia’s telecom infrastructure, and in return, boost its economic growth,” said Mr. Han Ling, ZTE's vice president and general manager, optical network products.
