ZTE Corporation and China Mobile jointly display a municipal IoT application at MWC Shanghai 2016
29 June 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, with China Mobile at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 Shanghai, the display of its smart well cover solution; a municipal Internet of Things (IoT) application.
