ZTE, Hutchison Drei unveil 5G partnership

19 Jul 2018

ZTE and Hutchison Drei Austria have announced a strategic partnership to prepare the country for the introduction of 5G technology. As a continuation of an almost ten-year cooperation, the pair have launched a joint ‘Innovation Lab’ initiative to test, develop and optimise ZTE’s latest technology solutions for use in the Austrian market.

‘The first result of the joint innovation initiative was the successful evaluation of the Pre-5G technology, which enabled us to create a commercial Pre-5G in Vienna (Seestadt) already at the beginning of this year,’ commented Jan Trionow, CEO of Hutchison Drei Austria, adding: ‘This move was a breakthrough in the European telecoms market, which made Austria a true 5G pioneer and excellence like this can only be achieved with a reliable, strong partner like ZTE.’
