Currently, over 20 pilots and commercial deployments of the solutions have been carried out to explore operational models and promote the maturation of the industry.
“For industry scenarios, ZTE, with extensive experience, has already deployed 500-plus all-optical campuses for multiple industry sectors such as enterprise, school, hospital, transport and energy,” said Mr. Song.
The accelerated deployment of broadband around the world has laid a solid foundation for the growth of video services. By 2024, globally, home broadband penetration will reach 68% and video services will account for 80% of network traffic.
As a leader in the video arena, ZTE is redefining home video services as being characterized by a new experience, a new scenario and a new ecosystem.
For the new experience, ZTE is focused on satisfying user demands and empowering digital life. The company can provide a multi-dimensional, immersive and Ultra High Definition (UHD) experience featuring multi-viewpoint video, free-viewpoint viewing, VR video and bullet time.
For the new scenario, ZTE is dedicated to serving homes and becoming a designer of customized video products. The company designs different scenario-based services for different family members, such as mobile entertainment for the elderly, teleworking for the middle-aged, cloud gaming for the young, and interactive classrooms for kids.
For the new ecosystem, ZTE is committed to building a bridge connecting home and society. The company employs an integrated cloud video platform and adopts a home-centered approach to connect multiple market segments and enable win-win cooperation.
Moving forward, ZTE is devoted to bringing together the wisdom and efforts of all the industry to make the all-fiber world a reality. By enabling video producers to concentrate on content creation and service providers to conduct hassle-free service operation, ZTE facilitates the comprehensive development of UHD video services for smart homes in the all-optical era.
