ZTE helps China Mobile launch TD-LTE network in Hong Kong
TT Correspondent |  |  18 Dec 2012

ZTE, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, helped China Mobile Hong Kong Co. Ltd. (CMHK) launch the first commercial converged TD-LTE / LTE FDD network in Hong Kong.

The start of Hong Kong’s first TD-LTE/FDD LTE converged network ushered in a new age in the city’s 4G telecommunications market, and unleashed vital impetus to propel the development of TD-LTE services globally. Ericsson AG was also a solution provider on the new China Mobile Hong Kong network.

China Mobile Hong Kong Co. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Mobile Ltd., acquired spectrum in the 2330MHz-2360MHz band for TD-LTE services in February 2012. On July 19, 2012, China Mobile Hong Kong announced a partnership with ZTE and Ericsson for the construction of the TD-LTE network offering dual-mode connectivity with existing FDD LTE services, giving subscribers a higher-quality 4G user experience and a more robust service.

“ZTE is a world-leading vendor for LTE equipment, with solid experience in network construction across the globe,’’ said  Sean Lee, Director and CEO of China Mobile Hong Kong. “We thank ZTE for their speedy completion of TD-LTE network planning work, enabling us to fulfill our commitment to roll out the converged network service commercially by year-end. We look forward to even better cooperation with ZTE in future network construction and operation.”

“The commercial operation of China Mobile Hong Kong’s TD-LTE/FDD LTE converged network in Hong Kong marks a new milestone in the development of LTE technology, and helps to build strong momentum in the industry,” said Zhang, Vice President of ZTE. “We are grateful to the support and recognition of ZTE’s work from China Mobile Hong Kong and other operators. As a leading LTE equipment vendor globally, ZTE is committed to develop our LTE technology through innovation, and build enhanced solutions to meet the requirements of our customers.”
