ZTE multi-service edge routers preferred in China Telecom IP network construction
ZTE supplied 51 percent of China Telecom’s MSE routers over past three years, delivering improved user experience and accelerating new service deployment
19 January 2015, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, is playing a leading role in the provisioning of multi-service edge (MSE) routers to China Telecom Group.
During the past three years, almost 51 percent of China Telecom’s centralised purchases for MSE routers were allocated to ZTE, demonstrating their superior performance and capabilities. In the most recent China Telecom IP network tender, ZTE won the second-highest allocation for MSE routers, and was awarded the largest share of orders for service routers (SR).
MSE routers play a central role in China Telecom’s ongoing upgrade of IP Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN). MSE routers enable operators to integrate traditional large customer private line oriented SR and broadband access servers (BRAS), helping to accelerate new service deployment, improve user experience, reduce network elements, and improve network resource utilisation as well as maintenance efficiency.
Thanks to its technological innovations and customer-centric philosophy, ZTE is gaining an increasing allocation of orders for high-end routers from China Telecom. ZTE’s high-end routers are deployed in more than 150 China Telecom MANs in 26 provinces, in addition to the core service sites at the headquarters of China Telecom.
With more than 20 years’ IP technology R&D, global IP network design, construction and maintenance experience, ZTE has built up advanced high-end router capabilities based on proprietary routing technology, backed by self-developed semiconductors. ZTE’s high-end routers are deployed in commercial networks of customers including China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, as well as operators in Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia, Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
