The network will cover the whole of Norway and phase I of the project is scheduled to be completed by June this year. A variety of services, including voice, high-speed data, professional trunking, and value-added services such as location, video monitoring, streaming media, cell broadcast and VOD, will be available to customers in Norway via the new network.
The network follows a successful demonstration of ZTE’s GoTa technology last year and the signing of a contract with NMT in December 2004.
“The demonstration of our technology last year received high praise from the Norwegian government,” said Fang Rong, Vice President of ZTE’s International Division. “The GoTa system’s feature-rich services, high spectrum efficiency and high data rate were particularly noted.
“ZTE is extremely proud of its position as a leading supplier of CDMA and its development of GoTa – the world’s first CDMA-based digital trunking mobile communications system – and we are very pleased to be bringing this technology to Europe.”
As a 3G-based technology, GoTa offers significant advantages over traditional 2G-based trunking systems, offering high-speed data services, smooth migration to all-IP, low installation costs and high-quality voice services.
The unveiling of the network today coincides with the first of a series of CDMA seminars hosted by the Corporation. The seminar, which will be followed by similar events in Indonesia, Algeria, Brazil, will feature demonstrations by ZTE and partner organisations, live ‘case study’ experiences from customers in Russia and China, and live equipment demonstrations.
ZTE offers a full CDMA portfolio, from network products to service platforms, service applications and terminals, all of which are in use around the world. ZTE’s GoTa system has been successfully deployed in more than 15 countries, including China, India, Indonesia and Brazil, and has become one of the world’s major digital trunking technologies.
