Cisco Systems has signed a deal with Chinese telecommunications equipment maker ZTE Corp. that will see the two companies work together to win deals from Asian operators, ZTE said in a statement Tuesday.
Under terms of the agreement, Cisco and ZTE will jointly offer packages of products used to build data networks, including 3G (third-generation) mobile networks, ZTE said. In addition, the companies will examine how they can work together to meet the needs of operators.
ZTE and Cisco believe that by working together they can win more business from Asian operators, ZTE said.
The scope of the agreement covers the Asia-Pacific region, excluding Japan. Financial terms of the deal, which was signed earlier this month at ZTE's headquarters in Shenzhen, China, were not disclosed.
