Hong Kong network operator CSL Ltd, and ZTE Corp announced that they will be mobilizing the world's first commercial 1800MHz/2600MHz dual-band LTE network in Hong Kong.

This deployment follows the commercial LTE network construction contract signed by both parties, under which ZTE provides CSL with an end- to-end LTE infrastructure solution and LTE devices. The dual-band LTE network will outline CSL's spectrum position to provide customers with better coverage and enhanced penetration for a more satisfying communications experience and service.

The LTE terminals for CSL's LTE network will be developed and deployed by ZTE. A unified core network will be provided to CSL to support 2G/3G/LTE , concurrently for a seamless user experience. The latest Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology supports the distributed multi-mode and multi-band base stations, including re-farming of the 1800MHz spectrum for LTE use. Hong Kong is one of the world's most challenging environments to deploy a large-scale wireless network because of its unique geography and density. ZTE explained, however, that its uni-RAN solution has shown enormous innovation and capabilities in coping with the needs of multi-platform integration in complex network environments. To date, the company has deployed seven commercial LTE networks and built nearly 50LTE trial networks for leading telecom operators in Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and MEA.

Dates were not specified in the announcement, however.
