  • ZTE

SHANGHAI, CHINA — German fiber network operator NetCologne launched a gigabit network using a @ 212MHz profile solution from ZTE Corporation, an international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet. ZTE's solution enables NetCologne’s residential customers to subscribe to high-speed data internet connectivity up to 1 Gbps. Supported by ZTE’s solution, NetCologne can provide 1 Gbps ultra-broadband access based on reusing the existing copper resources without requiring fiber construction in the residential network, which will save the reconstruction/civil work investment and keep NetCologne competitive in the market.


NetCologne is committed to providing the city of Cologne and associated regions with reliable and future-proofed telecom services. It has four high-performance data centers and its service portfolio ranges from voice and data services to the distribution of TV services, for both residential and business users, as well as business ICT solutions.
