China Mobile improves O&M efficiency five-fold with ZTE bearer network PTN intelligent tools
ZTE PTN sets new China Mobile standard in June 2016 PTN equipment emergency rehearsal
8 August 2016, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced that its ZTE bearer network packet-based transport network (PTN) intelligent operations and maintenance (O&M) technology has been set as the new standard by Jiangsu Mobile, China Mobile’s arm in China’s Jiangsu province.
ZTE’s PTN technology was set as the new standard following its stellar performance during a stress test made in June 2016. To improve the efficiency of the network’s emergency response, Jiangsu Mobile conducted a PTN transmission equipment emergency rehearsal at its branches in 13 cities. ZTE’s PTN’s fast failure recovery tool is customisable, adapting to the quantity of equipment and various engineering scenarios. When service interruption occurs following a link failure, it takes three minutes on average to manually recover service. With the ZTE PTN recovery tool, it takes just 30 seconds to recover service, a five-time increase above average.
Jiangsu Mobile spoke highly of ZTE’s PTN technology. By setting the ZTE PTN intelligent O&M tool as a standard, it suggests the Nanjing provincial company will be able to promote the development of all transmission vendors PTN O&M tools, which will improve the equipment maintenance efficiency of the whole province.
ZTE has long worked in close cooperation with China Mobile. ZTE is dedicated to PTN network O&M research and has developed a series of PTN O&M tools including a network expansion and contraction tool, a service cutover tool, a failure diagnosis tool, a tunnel migration tool and an optical power analysis tool. All of these tools have been deployed commercially. The ZTE PTN failure recovery tool is the newest innovative achievement from ZTE and the Nanjing Branch of Jiangsu Mobile who have been collaborating since 2015. With powerful features, efficient operational capability and excellent easy-maintenance features, the tool is highly regarded by customers. It is another example of win-win developments between ZTE and its customers.
