Del

ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, is pleased to help PT Smartfren Telecom launch 4G LTE-Advanced network in Indonesia, giving users access to the highest-performance mobile broadband services.

The new 4G LTE-Advanced, which supports both the FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE standards, was launched commercially by Smartfren in Jakarta on 19 August, and coverage areas already include the 22 major cities of Indonesia. The new network deploys ZTE’s market-leading 4G LTE solutions including eNB (evolved node B), Cloud Radio and eHRPD to deliver the best user experience to subscribers.

“The nationwide launch of our 4G LTE-Advanced service follows successful trials and the June launch of our Andromax range of LTE Smartphone and portable WiFi devices. We believe that 4G LTE-Advanced technology will open many opportunities for our customers and further accelerate the Information and Communication Technology Industry as a backbone for Indonesian economic growth. 4G LTE-Advanced will enable our customers to enjoy improved multimedia streaming, online games, cloud storage and video conferencing. Smartfren is committed to bring the best of 4G LTE technology to Indonesia to deliver not only higher speeds but a more stable and reliable 4G LTE experience,” said Smartfren Chief Executive Officer Paul Hodges.

“Smartfren just launched the widest LTE Advanced Service in Indonesia. We leverage both TDD and FDD technologies to get best of both technologies: high capacity and throughput on TDD at 2300 MHz and large coverage with FDD at 850 Mhz. With this combination, we can offer the best broadband experience. We have chosen ZTE for this deployment due to our long time relationship and their leadership with TDD networks," said Smartfren Chief Technology Officer Christian Daigneault.

"We are glad to partner with Smartfren to roll out their 4G LTE Advanced network in Indonesia," said Shi Lirong, President of ZTE Corporation, "We are fully committed to delivering a state-of-the-art LTE ecosystem, which will help Smartfren offer the best mobile broadband services to their customers. This alliance has allowed ZTE to further cement our position as the partner of choice for telecom operators in the country in developing and maintaining their LTE ecosystem. This partnership also fits into our long term vision of developing a sustainable LTE network in Indonesia."

With ZTE's powerful Universal Subscriber Profile Platform (USPP), Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF), and Online Charging System (OCS) products, the core NEs of both CDMA and LTE networks are highly integrated to provide a unified user database and policy control and charging policies, allowing the LTE network to be deployed rapidly, facilitating maintenance and operation of 3G and 4G networks in the future, and lowering operational costs. Smartfren can take advantage of the sophisticated OCS system to launch flexible tariff packages in the market to attract upscale users with an urgent need for mobile broadband services.

By the end of June, ZTE has concluded 185 4G LTE/EPC commercial contracts globally, partnering with the world’s biggest operators including Bharti Airtel, China Mobile, China Telecom, Hutchison, Softbank, Telenor, TeliaSonera, Vodafone, VimpelCom, MTN and Telefonica.
