China’s ZTE Appointed as Ooredoo’s Vendor

Ooredoo Myanmar has appointed China-based ZTE Corp as its authorised supplier to source telecom equipment required for building the 3G mobile network, a top official said.

In December, Oordeoo Myanmar signed an agreement with Nokia Solutions and Networks, a subsidiary of Nokia Corp, to supply radio and core equipment for the development of mobile broadband services.

Ooredoo, one of the two winners of Myanmar’s telecom licences, is planning to launch 3G services nationwide in 2014.

China’s ZTE also serves as a major supplier of backbone infrastructure to state-owned telecom operator Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications (MPT).

Although the Telecommunications Law has been enacted on October 8 last year, Qatar’s Ooredoo and Norway’s Telenor who won the two nationwide telecom licences in June haven’t yet formally received the licences.

The two firms are now developing the mobile network and infrastructure required to launch mobile services once the licences have been officially awarded.
