ZTE Corp. has won a contract with China Mobile Hong Kong Co. Ltd (CMHK) to construct an LTE-TDD network in the territory. The agreement revealed that ZTE will offer LTE-TDD solutions to CMHK, including SDR BTS, terminals, network planning, integration and network optimization.

The jointly constructed network will be Hong Kong's central network, covering Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. CMHK is a wholly owned subsidiary of China Mobile Ltd.

CMHK received its Hong Kong LTE-TDD license in February 2012 for the 2330MHz to 2360MHz of 30MHz frequencies. At the 2012 GTI Asia Conference in Shanghai, CMHK announced that it will provide LTE-TDD and LTE-FDD services based on its dual-mode LTE-TDD/FDD network by end of this year. CMHK had previously launched its LTE-FDD network in Hong Kong in April 2012.

"ZTE is an advanced LTE solutions provider," indicated Sean Lee, director and CEO of China Mobile Hong Kong. "We are excited to work with the company to construct the LTE-TDD/FDD dual-mode network in Hong Kong."

ZTE VP and CTO of the APAC and CIS Regions, Zhang Jianguo, said: "Hong Kong has one of the world's most advanced and competitive mobile communications markets. There are already four LTE networks in the territory. ZTE is honored to have the opportunity to construct a central network there."
