ZTE Corp., a provider of telecommunications and network equipment, and Canadian operator Public Mobile  plan to build a commercial CDMA network in Ontario and Quebec.

 

ZTE will design, build and operate the end-to-end CDMA network including wireless, core network, service platforms and IP architecture. ZTE is also supplying Public Mobile with handsets.

 

As part of the agreement, the Chinese firm is deploying over 1,000 base stations for the network, as well as what it calls the industry’s first 5+5MHz-based customized offering for personalized communications systems (PCS) to provide extended G block frequency band on CDMA system equipment and terminals.
