ZTE Corporation, the fastest growing global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced that it is to provide almost one million lines of ADSL2+ equipment to China Telecom, the country´s largest fixed line operator, for network upgrading and transformation.
This latest success, which represents 30% of the total award by China Telecom follows three previous million-line ADSL orders secured in December 2003, August 2004 and March 2005 with the same operator, and further confirms ZTE´s global market strength in ADSL provision.
The ZTE ADSL2+ equipment, including IPTV service support, multicast technology, comprehensive multi-service platform, broadband operation and maintenance, is among the most advanced in the industry.
"We are proud to have been selected again by China Telecom for its strategic transformation towards becoming a comprehensive information service provider," said ZTE Network Division´s Vice General Manager Mr Huang Dabin. "This new ZTE equipment will help China Telecom generate further new profit opportunities by bringing its subscribers more diversified broadband services."
In recent years, ZTE´s ADSL equipment has been a key element of partnerships with global mainstream operators. In 2004 ZTE won a major contract with Greek operator OTE for the Olympic Games against worldwide competition. The company deployed an ADSL network covering 16 points in Athens. In March 2005 ZTE signed an agreement to become a global supplier of ADSL equipment to France Telecom, one of the world´s leading telecommunications carriers.
ZTE´s ADSL products have been deployed in over 30 countries and regions around the world, including France, Greece, Romania and Egypt, with an accumulated capacity of 15 million lines. According to a 2005 Gartner Dataquest´s report, ZTE was one of the top three DSL providers in the world.
