AUSTIN, Texas -- October 28, 2013

ZTE Corporation, a top global provider of telecommunications equipment and
network solutions, has selected Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge BSC9132 “base
station-on-chip” product to power one of the first ever commercial deployments
based on the LTE standards. The Freescale solution will provide embedded
intelligence for a new line of femtocell products to be deployed later this

TD-LTE is a 4G wireless standard designated by several leading service
providers for broad deployment throughout China, Japan and other major markets
around the world. TD-LTE technology requires advanced silicon and software
solutions to enable the ultra high performance that service providers and
end-users expect.

“ZTE is playing a pivotal role in the build-out of LTE networks across global
4G markets,” said Zhang Shizhuang, TDD product director for ZTE. “The
performance, energy efficiency and scalability of Freescale’s proven QorIQ
Qonverge platform allow us to deliver compelling and highly differentiated
products designed to establish an early leadership position in LTE solutions.”

QorIQ Qonverge base station-on-chip products are based on a common
architecture and integrate communications processing, digital signal
processing and wireless acceleration technologies into a single system-on-chip
in various configurations optimized for next-generation femtocell, metrocell
and macrocell base stations. Advanced process technology and exceptional
integration allow the convergence on a single device of multiple functions
traditionally performed on separate FPGAs, ASICs, DSPs and processors. This
integration reduces the part count, power consumption, cost and footprint for
base stations. Having a common, scalable architecture spanning from femtocells
to macrocells enables optimized R&D investments and software reuse.

“This project continues the successful track record that ZTE and Freescale
have established in collaborating to create world-class wireless
infrastructure solutions,” said Tareq Bustami, vice president of product
management for Freescale’s Digital Networking business. “As the demand
continues to grow worldwide for additional bandwidth, Freescale is pleased to
work with ZTE to help deliver on the compelling promise of 4G LTE technology.”
