Hong Kong operator CSL orders new LTE base stations from ZTE as demand rises for network capacity
ZTE has signed an agreement with CSL for LTE network expansion in Hong Kong. Under the contract, ZTE will build an extensive network of LTE Advanced base stations for the company, which is owned by Telstra.
The deal will help CSL to handle the rising demand for network capacity. It will also allow CSL to operate LTE services on both 2600 megahertz and 1800 megahertz, ZTE said.
Joseph O’Konek, CSL’s CEO, said: “CSL strives to deliver the best user experience to Hong Kong customers. Combined with our roll-out of the first 4G LTE network in Hong Kong, ZTE’s innovative solutions will help satisfy the increasing demand for mobile data, maintaining CSL’s and Hong Kong’s position as leaders in global telecommunications development.”
Shi Lirong, CEO of ZTE, said: “The unique geography of Hong Kong makes it one of the most challenging environments for large-scale network deployment.” GTB
