ZTE Corp. has signed a global deal with Hutchison 3G UK Ltd (H3G) to make its 3G modems available to all Hutchison operating companies. Under the agreement, ZTE will deliver its HSDPA MF622 modem to 3UK and 3 Ireland to enhance H3G's efficiency of its supply chain capability. ZTE's MF622 modem supports a signal boosting technology called 'Receive Diversity', a unique feature that, says the company, improves cell efficiency and data throughput rate, particularly under 'edge of cell' conditions.

"The deal is a big step for us to capture a significant share of the broadband communications equipment market in Europe", stated Li Yingfeng, general manager of ZTE W-CDMA handset lineup. "We are providing H3G's operating companies 3G modems that will allow them to leverage their network investment and compete effectively in a business which traditionally has been dominated by the fixed-line operator."

The two companies started collaborative partnership in 2005 when they signed a 3G handset supply agreement. Prior to that, ZTE worked closely with H3G for a year to develop the handsets.
