Recently, ZTE and operator Velcom announced the first commercial NB-IoT network in Belarus. velcom is the second largest wireless operator in Belarus and its wireless network and core network are exclusively constructed by ZTE with excellent network performance and user ARPU topped the list.
From the end of 2016, ZTE has started a series of cooperation with velcom for NB-IoT. In April 2017, on the TIBO, Belarus's largest annual communication show, ZTE demonstrated its exclusive NB-IoT end-to-end smart meter reading business. After the show, ZTE and velcom completed all the tests before the commercial deployment. In December, they officially announced the commercial NB-IoT network in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, realizing intelligent meter reading. Follow-up, velcom will also gradually complete NB-IoT in the nationwide deployment. At the same time, velcom actively organizes local partners to jointly promote the mature deployment of the business. At present, it has cooperated with GRAN-SYSTEMA-C, JSC Aktagor Telecom, a leading manufacturer of energy and instruments in the country, and InDelCo, Leading Telemetry and Industrial Automation Company in Belarus. Promote the development of IoT eco-industrial circle.
