ZTE SDR Solution Nominated for GSMA's 14th Global Mobile Awards

    The Only Chinese Company to Achieve Such Prestigious Recognition

    SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), a leading global
provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions has been
shortlisted for the Best Network Technology Advance Award at the 2009 Global
Mobile Awards, the most prestigious mobile honours in the mobile
communications field, for its cutting-edge SDR (Software Defined Radio)
solution.  ZTE is the only Chinese company nominated for this global award.
    ZTE's SDR technology enables mobile operators to extend the lifespan of
network systems and integrate multiple applications.  The result is a
significant decrease in TCO (total cost of ownership), along with minimal
network risk and complexity.  The technology, which enables smooth scalability
to future HSPA+ and LTE networks, runs radio functionality as software modules
on an integrated, unified hardware platform, and allows operators to flexibly
and easily roll-out new mobile services.
    "Our SDR technology helps operators conveniently transform from 'network
providers' to 'service providers', unlocking new markets and generating
additional revenue," said Mr. Zhang Jianguo, general manager of ZTE's UMTS
products.  "We're committed to continuing to deliver versatile, end-to-end and
innovative new infrastructure technologies that help our customers excel. This
nomination is an important recognition of ZTE's capability to compete at the
forefront of global telecoms technology."
    "Our congratulations go to all the nominees in this year's Global Mobile
Awards," said Rob Conway, CEO of the GSMA.  "In an uncertain economic climate,
mobile communications continue to drive social, economic and technological
development, as the calibre of entries this year again illustrates.  To be
nominated from such a high quality field of more than 450 companies that
entered is a tremendous achievement, and we await the announcement of the
winners at this month's Global Mobile Awards evening in Barcelona with great
    ZTE's ZXSDR B8200 and ZXSDR R8860 are the company's two major SDR
products. They helped ZTE receive the InfoVision award for its SDR technology
at the Broadband World Forum (BBWF) Europe 2008.  This award further
reinforced ZTE's position as a market leader in network innovation.
    In January 2009, ZTE SDR 8000 systems were deployed by China Unicom in
all of China's 18 provinces for its WCDMA networks.  ZTE launched the world's
first commercial SDR base station at the 2008 GSMA Mobile World Congress in
Barcelona.  The base stations simultaneously support both GSM and UMTS
services, as well as provide a smooth evolution path for LTE.
    To date, over 35,000 ZTE SDR base stations have been deployed in large
scale networks in countries and regions such as Hong Kong, India, Turkey and
mainland China.
