China’s second largest equipment manufacturer ZTE Corporation has been selected by Sri Lanka Telecom to deploy its ALL IP-based CDMA network in the country. The two firms signed a pact in Colombo under which the Chinese vendor will roll out 124 base stations in Sri Lanka, based on its ALL IP CDMA2000 solution, for the country’s largest fixed line operator. The network, which includes a soft switch-based ALL-IP 3G core network and a series of ALL-IP base stations, is due to be installed by January 2006 at which date it will accommodate 150,000 new connections, offering subscribers high speed internet access to voice mail, high data rate transfer services and location based services.
