ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, announced that the company won a contract from Wind Telecom to build the first 4G TD-LTE network in the Dominican Republic.

ZTE’s globally-leading TD-LTE solutions will be implemented to help Wind Telecom deploy a stable high-speed network to provide mobile broadband services for consumers and businesses in the Dominican Republic. ZTE’s unified platform EPC and eNodeB solutions, based on ZTE’s proprietary Cloud Radio technology, will help Wind Telecom achieve savings in capital expenditure, and operation and maintenance costs, and lay solid foundations for future growth.

"This next-generation network is an investment in the future of the Dominican Republic,” said José Clase, Chairman of the Board of Wind Telecom. “This platform will help bridge the digital divide and raise the economic competitiveness of the Dominican Republic by helping to lift the standard of education. The high-speed network connectivity will also deliver an enhanced user experience for consumers.”

"We are very pleased to work with Wind Telecom to build the Dominican Republic's first TD-LTE 4G network,” said Yu Xin, Vice President of ZTE Corporation. “With our expertise in TD-LTE 4G, ZTE is committed to providing the best user experience for customers of Wind Telecom."

“Until the end of October, 2013, ZTE published 815 SAE/LTE patent statements in the IPR database of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), accounting for 13 percent of the total in the global telecommunications industry,” said Jiang Xiangyang, Vice President of ZTE Corporation. “Our industry leading technology advantages will guarantee ZTE and Wind Telecom provide the wonderful mobile broadband services for consumers in the Dominican Republic.”

As a global provider of industry-leading solutions, ZTE developed an end-to-end Turnkey solution for Wind Telecom after analyzing the operator’s existing networks. With the help of ZTE, Wind Telecom’s 4G TD-LTE network will serve consumers and businesses and help make Dominican transition to the wireless broadband era, meeting higher data bandwidth needs.

Under the multi-year contract, ZTE will help Wind Telecom deploy a 4G TD-LTE network in 2.5 – 2.7 GHz spectrum covering major cities and rural areas of Dominican, as well as provide 4G mobile devices that will appeal to users and help them take advantage of the broadband capabilities of the new network.
