ZTE to Open R&D in Pakistan

ZTE announced plans to open R&D facilities in Islamabad, Pakistan as part of its growing presence in international markets. The new office will be the 12th R&D centre created by ZTE around the world and comes less than a month after the company announced similar plans in India.

ZTE said its already has more than 10% of the fixed line market in Pakistan, while its wireless products are also increasing their penetration. Last December, ZTE built Pakistan's first NGN (next generation network) while a CDMA WLL (wireless local loop) network for local operator Telecard will eventually be enlarged to cover the whole country.

In neighboring India, ZTE's new facility will manufacture CDMA, GSM, DSL and NGN equipment, as well as handsets.
