ZTE Wins TD-LTE Contract in Dominican Republic

Wind Telecom has selected ZTE to build the first 4G TD-LTE network in the Dominican Republic. The network will operate in 2.5 – 2.7 GHz spectrum and cover major cities and rural areas of the nation.

ZTE said its unified platform EPC and eNodeB solutions, based on ZTE’s proprietary Cloud Radio technology, will help Wind Telecom achieve savings in capital expenditure, and operation and maintenance costs, and lay solid foundations for future growth.

ZTE will also provide mobile devices that will appeal to users and help them take advantage of the broadband capabilities of the new network.

"This next-generation network is an investment in the future of the Dominican Republic,” said José Clase, Chairman of the Board of Wind Telecom. “This platform will help bridge the digital divide and raise the economic competitiveness of the Dominican Republic by helping to lift the standard of education. The high-speed network connectivity will also deliver an enhanced user experience for consumers.”

ZTE has deployed commercial 4G TD-LTE networks for operators globally including China Mobile, China Mobile Hong Kong, Bharti Airtel and Hi3G in Sweden.
