China's ZTE Corporation has signed a contract with Slovak operator SWAN for a nationwide LTE network project.
ZTE will exclusively construct a core CS/PS network, and a GSM/LTE mobile communications and value added services network, involving over 1,100 dual-mode GSM/LTE base stations to SWAN.
Financial terms of the deal were not released.
SWAN was granted the fourth wireless operator license in Slovakia in January 2014, and plans to build more than 1,100 GSM and LTE base stations within three years.
ZTE has signed 146 LTE/EPC commercial contracts around the world, and has contracts in 70% of the countries that have invested in LTE. SWAN's nationwide LTE network project is the first large-scale commercial network built by ZTE in Slovakia, indicating an important step forward for ZTE's wireless products in the European operator market.
