Riding the wave of large-scale 5G deployment, China Telecom has been following the development trend of cloud and network convergence, and adhering to the network construction guide of taking the network as the basis and the cloud as the core. As the pioneer in 5G network construction, ZTE has been one of the most important partners in China Telecom's 5G network construction.
Moving forward, ZTE will, as always, fully support the operators in their 5G construction, and assist them in building high-quality telecommunications networks, so as to further accelerate network evolution towards ultra-broadband, simplified, and intelligent networks, and jointly achieve commercial success in the 5G era.
