Vodafone has signed a global partnership framework agreement with China's ZTE. The agreement covers all-range system devices in GSM and optical transmission, according to a ZTE statement.
Under the agreement, ZTE will customise various system devices for Vodafone using the world's largest production line, said Lin Cheng, general manager of ZTE in the Western Europe region.
ZTE signed a global partnership framework agreement on terminal products with Vodafone in February 2007. Terminal sales from the cooperation were over 8 million in 2007, making ZTE to world's sixth biggest terminal supplier, the company said.
