They employ full-packet structure, open platform and packet technologies to offer different end-to-end transport solutions for users in different applications. Applied to metro networks at core, convergence and access layers, they meet transport network demands at different stages, reduce CAPEX and OPEX, and build efficient, flexible, low-cost metro transport network with energy conservation and green environmental protection.
ZTE’s data communication router series, including high-performance core router series T1200/600, has advanced hardware structure, overall route protocol and a wide variety of interfaces. They are widely deployed in backbone networks across the world. Carrier-class switch 8900 series has modular structure and cost-effective interfaces such as 10GE. ZESR ring technology provides carrier-class protection switching for the networks at access/convergence layer.
“We make full use of advantages in R&D and scientific innovation to build bearer network for carriers.
