NEW DELHI: Chinese telecommunications manufacturer and wireless solution provider ZTE Corporation, has announced the opening of a flagship factory and R&D center in India. The facility forms the centerpiece of ZTE's ongoing commitment to the Indian market.

Located in Manesar near Gurgaon, the factory covers an area of more than 4,000 square meters and contains the latest hi-tech equipment. ZTE will use the facility to manufacture CDMA, GSM, DSL, and NGN equipment, as well as handsets.

"ZTE has been committed to the Indian market for several years," said ZTE's VP of the South-Asian region Zhang Renjun. "Our new facility will provide additional local support to our valued Indian customers, allowing us to better meet their requirements and expectations. I am confident that ZTE will become one of the largest telecommunication enterprises in this fast-growing market".

"We will achieve our long-term goals by staying close to our customers and partners and delivering excellent but cost-effective products, thereby bringing greater revenues to service providers," he added.

Earlier this year, ZTE reached an agreement with Atlas Interactive worth more than Rs 100 crore. The contract involves supplying and commissioning a VoIP network as the foundation for a range of triple-play services for subscribers. In 2003, ZTE had signed a contract with BSNL to provide nationwide CDMA WLL equipment and solutions.
