ZTE Corp. announced signing a new deal with Taiwan’s VIBO Telecom towards supplying over 3500 WCDMA equipments (base stations) to the operator.
“In Q1 2010, number of 3G subscribers accounted for 60% of the total subscribers from Taiwan, increased from about 40% in 2008. 3G communication has become the de facto standard for the local market," said Mr Zhang Jianguo, GM of GU product of ZTE Corporation.
“To address this growing need for high-speed 3G data services, ZTE will help VIBO roll out 21.6 Mbps HSPA+ mobile broadband services across the entire island of Taiwan for its users in the future. Our SDR platform can ensure the smooth and seamless upgrade of the network from GSM/UMTS to HSPA+ and LTE, allowing VIBO to dramatically reduce its operating and infrastructure costs.”
