Caribbean operator Wind Telecom has awarded ZTE a contract to build the Dominican Republic’s first 4G TD-LTE network.
The network will provide mobile broadband services for consumers and businesses in the Dominican Republic. ZTE’s unified platform EPC and eNodeB solutions, based on its 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.
"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.”
As a global provider of industry-leading solutions, ZTE developed an end-to-end Turnkey solution for Wind Telecom after analysing the operator’s existing networks. With the help of ZTE, Wind Telecom’s 4G TD-LTE network will serve consumers and businesses and help make Dominican transition to the wireless broadband era, meeting higher data bandwidth needs.
Under the multi-year contract, ZTE will help Wind Telecom deploy a 4G TD-LTE network in 2.5 – 2.7 GHz spectrum covering major cities and rural areas of Dominican, as well as provide 4G mobile devices that will appeal to users and help them take advantage of the broadband capabilities of the new network.
