Hong Kong's CSL Selects ZTE for 1800 MHz/2600 MHz Dual-band LTE Network

Hong Kong's CSL Limited, which is a subsidiary of Telstra, has selected ZTE for its commercial 1800 MHz/2600 MHz dual-band LTE network. The dual-band LTE network will leverage CSL's spectrum position to provide customers with better coverage and enhanced penetration for a more satisfying communications experience.

The deployment follows the commercial LTE network construction contract signed by both parties, under which ZTE will provide CSL with an end-to-end LTE infrastructure solution and LTE devices. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The LTE terminals for CSL's LTE network will be deployed and developed by ZTE. The company said its 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.

ZTE noted that, to date, it has deployed seven commercial LTE networks and built nearly 50 LTE trial networks.
