ZTE secures the largest share in China Mobile’s 2019-2020 BRAS & vBRAS centralized procurement
5 June 2020, 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 it has won 70 percent of China Mobile’s 2019-2020 BRAS & vBRAS high-end router & switch (Section 4) centralized procurement by virtue of its vBRAS solution. To date, China Mobile’s largest-scale data communication product centralized procurement project has come to an end.
ZTE’s vBRAS solution will help China Mobile to further increase equipment resource utilization rate, accelerate new service deployment and improve operation & maintenance (O&M) efficiency. Meanwhile, it can provide powerful technical support for China Mobile’s superb network construction in 5GC scenarios.
In this project, ZTE’s high-end router ZXR10 M6000-S has been employed to serve as the high-performance forwarding device while ZTE’s pure X86 ZXR10 V6000 vBRAS product has played the role of control plane.
The cloudified control plane and the ultra-high-performance forwarding plane can not only effectively solve the problems of traditional BRAS devices, such as unbalanced resource utilization, long service deployment period and heavy O&M workload of distributed configuration, but also easily cope with the ever-increasing bandwidth challenge of the MAN.
Moreover, ZTE’s ZXR10 M6000-S products deployed on the existing networks can be upgraded to vBRAS forwarding devices by means of software, so as to fully protect customer investments.
In addition to Section 4, in China Mobile’s high-end router 2T (Section 2) and high-end router 400G (Section 3) centralized procurements completed in 2019, ZTE had also obtained 50% and 30% shares, ranking No.1 and No.2 respectively. In spite of the coronavirus outbreak, ZTE has overcome various difficulties to complete the commercial deployments of Section 2 and Section 3 devices in 5GC scenarios in major provinces and tier 1 cities in China.
As one of the most important partners of China Mobile in the 5G era, ZTE will fully support the 5G construction of China Mobile and embrace the upcoming 5G era along with the operator.
