ZTE Signs Strategic Partnership with Telenet on 5G and IoT

By

ZTE Corporation, an international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, has announced the signing of Strategic Partnership Agreement on 5G and IoT with Telenet, deepening the two companies' collaboration on next-generation technologies.

In a ceremony at the Castle Val-Duchesse in Brussels, officiated by Prime Minister Charles Michel of Brussels and Premier Li Keqiang of China, Micha Berger, CTO, Telenet, and Xiao Ming, SVP, ZTE, signed the new agreement that expands the partnership between the two companies to cover future network innovations.

“We already engaged for a couple of months with ZTE now and are very happy about it,” Berger said. “We are convinced this partnership will allow us to offer a top quality mobile network for existing and future needs all over Belgium.”

Telenet is the largest cable broadband service provider in Belgium, listed on the Euronext stock exchange under the ticker TNET, providing a range of digital television, fixed and mobile services to residential and business customers across Belgium and Luxembourg.

In August 2016, Telenet selected ZTE to upgrade its national mobile network, deploying ZTE's Uni-RAN technology. ZTE helped Telenet replace 2G base stations and optimize 3G, 4G coverage, delivering increased network capacity for enhanced user experience for subscribers, and supporting evolution to future network technologies. Telenet completed field test and set a new European network speed record, achieving download speeds of 1.3 Gigabits per second, four times faster than existing 4G services. Now, together with ZTE, Telenet is exploring technology solutions for IoT services and high capacity solutions using LTE Massive MIMO and LTE Broadcast solutions.

“ZTE is excited by our strategic agreement with Telenet,” said Xiao. “This agreement provides a solid foundation for Telenet and ZTE to expand and strengthen the long-term partnership on the way to a new 5G era.”
