ZTE’s comprehensive end-to-end (E2E) capabilities enable China Mobile to deliver the highest-performance VoLTE services and user experience to subscribers by evolving and coordinating the wireless, bearer, signaling, billing, as well as operations and maintenance (O&M) components of the network across circuit switched (CS), IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) and evolved packet core (EPC) domains. China Mobile and ZTE successfully completed a large-capacity field test in Hunan, exceeding all specifications and requirements. The project in Hunan was China Mobile’s first province completed 4G+ commercial network in the country.

In August, ZTE was awarded contracts in China Mobile’s Phase 2 CM-IMS centralised tender in major provinces including Guangdong, Jiangsu, Hubei, Hunan, Shandong, Sichuan and Fujian. ZTE received one of the highest allocations among participating vendors, and will provide China Mobile with a full-range of VoLTE core network solutions covering equipment and systems integration.
