India's Aircel Picks ZTE for 4G

Aircel has selected ZTE as a key supplier for its 4G network. Under the contract, LTE rollout will be initiated in Chennai, Rest of Tamil Nadu (RoTN) and few other business critical circles. ZTE is also migrating Aircel’s data services int he Chennai and ROTN circles to its evolved packet core. Financial terms were not disclosed.

ZTE noted its relationship with Aircel since 2008, where it has supported the operator's 2G-3G rollout in three circles of the north zone and played a key role in the launch of the Next Generation Networks (NGN) for Pan India. The EPC deployment in the south zones further strengthens the partnership and enables Aircel to provide high capacity and capability solutions with access agnostic functions for 2G, 3G and 4G LTE services.
