22 November 2019, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced that 2019 ZTE Wireline User Congress and Wireline Technology Summit was held in Bogota, Colombia. Together with numerous industry partners, such as ETB, Antel and CCIT, ZTE made in-depth discussions on the future development of wireline products and technologies.
The congress focuses on the prevailing 5G-related topics, such as 5G transport, beyond-100 G optical transmission, SDON, Gigabit broadband, Mesh Wi-Fi and 5G big video. As a global leader in 5G, ZTE is committed to technological innovations and industry contributions, and keeps deepening cooperation with global partners.
Alberto Samuel Yohai, President of the Colombian Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications (CCIT), recognizes ZTE as a major player in the Colombian market and believes that ZTE will continue to contribute to the modernization and development of the ICT industry throughout Latin America.
Efraín Martínez, CTO of ETB, said that the development from copper lines to optical networks and the deployment of FTTH services provide operators with great benefits, such as the increase of broadband services and the decrease of operation costs.
Mr. Aldo Castagna, Fixed Access Network Manager of Antel, said that with a GPON network that has already covered almost entire territory of Uruguay, Antel is confronted with the challenge to integrate new technologies and services with the existing network.
To date, ZTE has shipped over 20,000 5G transport products. Together with global operators, ZTE has completed over 30 commercial deployments and pilot tests of 5G transport networks.
ZTE’s beyond-100 G optical transmission products have been put into large-scale commercial use and deployed in over 50 networks. Moreover, the transmission distance of ZTE’s commercial 200G OTN is up to 1,700 km. The transmission distance of ZTE’s 400G OTN reached 600 km in the existing network test of China Mobile. By virtue of the multi-dimensional shaping technology and the new-generation FEC, ZTE has increased the beyond-100G transmission distance by 30%, greatly reducing the deployment difficulty and upgrade cost.
In addition, ZTE’s flagship optical access platform, TITAN, records the industry’s top 1 in terms of capacity and integration. It innovatively adopts Combo PON to solve the 10G PON upgrade problem. Integrating edge computing and access NEs, ZTE’s embedded blade server has been served as the Access CDN, which is commercially used by the Zhejiang and Anhui Branches of China Mobile.
ZTE’s PON OLT was awarded the second prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award twice. Besides, ZTE’s 5G big video system has over 100 million total capacity; its iCDN product is leading in the market in terms of competitiveness, commercial progress, and market shares. In addition, ZTE’s 5G Live TV solution is also used in many major sports events in China.
According to IHS Markit, ZTE ranked third in the world and second in Asia Pacific in the Ethernet mobile backhaul market in the first half of 2019. Moreover, in the fixed-line field, ZTE's fixed-line sales, PON sales, and fixed-line terminal sales (DSL CPE & FTTH CPE) ranked second in the world in 2019 Q2.
