ZTE was one of only three successful vendors in China Mobile’s tender after a stringent selection process.

Apart from ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell and FiberHome were the other winning bidders.
“ZTE is committed to achieving win-win with our customers through dedicated R&D efforts and high-quality customer services,” said Bei Jinsong, Director of Optical Access Products at ZTE. “Our efforts have resulted in industry-leading product performance and increasing market acceptance for ZTE’s GPON equipment.”
According to the latest report on the global fixed-network market by Ovum, ZTE’s GPON equipment shipments in the fourth quarter rose 27% sequentially, the fastest growth rate among major vendors, benefiting from demand in the Americas, Europe and China. ZTE is committed to maintain the company’s industry-leadership in the global GPON market by offering first-rate products and superior services.
