ZTE to Deploy the First Commercial WiMAX Network in Serbia
Serbia is to receive its first ever commercial WiMAX network in an
agreement announced today between leading WiMAX operator, VeratNet,
and ZTE Corporation (Shenzhen: 000063, Hong Kong: 0763), China’s
largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless
solutions provider. This will be ZTE’s first European WiMAX deployment
but follows WiMAX wins in Asia and Africa.
ZTE will provide VeratNet with a nationwide WiMAX network which is due
for completion by June 2007, serving almost 10 million subscribers
with wireless broadband. In January 2006, the first phase of the
deployment will be complete offering wireless broadband access to
business subscribers in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade.
Under the terms of the contract, ZTE will supply VeratNet with its
end-to-end WiMAX solution including the base stations as well as the
CPEs (Customer Premises Equipment), which offer smooth scalability to
an 802.16e (mobile WiMAX) network, roaming support architecture and
“Extending and improving access to broadband communications is a vital
part of Serbia’s development and we are proud to be able to bring the
most advanced wireless broadband technology currently available to our
customers” said Mr Milomir Jevtic, Executive Director of VeratNet.
“We are excited to cooperate with VeratNet in this project as it
clearly recognizes ZTE as a leading vendor of WiMAX networking
solutions,” said Mr. Guo Jun, President of ZTE Europe. “ZTE is totally
committed to provisioning VeratNet with a peerless broadband access
experience, and we are particularly proud to be the company to install
the first commercial WiMAX network for Serbia.”
