China-based ZTE Corporation has secured the commercial contract to deploy the new GSM/UMTS project for India's leading telecom operator, Reliance Communications.
Under the agreement, ZTE will build and supply 2G and 3G equipment for 8 of Reliance's network circles, out of a total 13.
In this project, the network to be deployed by ZTE for Reliance is based on the standard SDR platform, which can not only realize multiple modes for a single basestation, but also evolve smoothly into next generation networks like LTE. This provides a powerful guarantee for cost-effective networking and future evolution of the overall project. Technologically speaking, ZTE's green base-stations are already the most advanced in the industry.
