Telenor Hungary picks ZTE for LTE rollout

26 Feb 2013

Mobile network operator Telenor Hungary has selected ZTE of China to deploy its nationwide 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in the country, with the initial phase covering 76 Hungarian towns and cities. Under the contract, the Chinese equipment maker is providing its Uni-RAN network solutions based on SDR technology, it said. Telenor Hungary is looking to optimise its spectrum provisioning for LTE services in the 1800MHz frequency band going forward, and the ZTE Uni-RAN deployment will purportedly support ‘network multimode convergence and provide for a smoother evolution’, the vendor said.

ZTE and Telenor Hungary have a long-standing working relationship and the Chinese company has already constructed its GSM/UMTS/LTE three-mode, four-band network. At the end of 2011 the pair jointly launched the first nationwide dual-carrier (DC)-HSPA+ mobile broadband network in Hungary.
