ZTE Services Deutschland has won two Europe-based managed services deals with KPN and MVNO Join.

The first contract sees ZTE provide voicemail hosting, maintenance and operational services for KPN’s mobile subscriber base in the Netherlands. The three-year contract came into effect on November 1 and builds on a previous agreement from 2009, when the Dutch operator selected ZTE as its sole supplier for 2G, 3G and 4G networks in Germany and Belgium.

ZTE was also selected to oversee the rollout and operation of Join’s core network in Luxembourg and the expansion of the network into neighbouring Belgium later this month.

The China-based vendor will be the sole provider of equipment for both networks, and will also provide maintenance, repairs, testing and troubleshooting services.

Additionally, ZTE said it would undertake software upgrades for Join’s network and improve the user experience by using “major new software tools”, in addition to providing OSS and BSS solutions through the vendor’s IT subsidiary, ZTEsoft. The subsidiary will provide a complete billing and payment management system to the Join network as part of the contract.

Claude Lüscher, General Manager of Join, said: “Join is planning to expand its mobile and IT services business from Luxembourg to other European countries, starting with Belgium in mid-November. The contract we have signed with ZTE Services Deutschland establishes our cooperation and our ambition to grow together.

"It is our goal to grow into other European markets and to leverage the potential of our pan-European tariff offer. We feel that ZTE is the right partner, sharing the same challenger philosophy.”​
