4 March 2015, 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 in 2014, the annual shipments of ZTE 100G optical transport network (OTN) products exceeded 10,000 units. This increase in market share ranked at number one in the world.
ZTE has deployed more than 150 commercial projects of 100G technology, with the total line length exceeding 100,000km. ZTE 100G OTN products are deployed by leading operators in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Latin America. These operators include TMA Austria, Telefonica Peru, Telkom Indonesia, PCCW Hong Kong, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom. ZTE 100G OTN products serve 4G wireless networks, wired broadband and data center services, providing super-large-bandwidth transport platforms and advanced ultra-high-speed solutions.
“Based on a deep understanding of operator demands, ZTE provides high-speed network solutions from the aggregation, backbone, transmission and IP layers for global customers, to help operators build fast, flexible, secure and smart transport networks that feature large bandwidth and high efficiency,” said Xu Ming, Vice President of ZTE.
According to OVUM’s latest optical network (ON) product market report, the rolling Q4 market share of ZTE’s 100G products was 11.3 percent, the largest growth in the industry. The same share of ZTE ON products was 13.3 percent, achieving the largest growth worldwide. ZTE’s global market share remained in the top two in the world, whereas in the largest regional ON market, the Asia-Pacific area, ZTE’s market share grew to number one. ZTE also stands as the largest multi-service aggregation equipment supplier and third largest wavelength division-multiplexing (WDM)/converged packet optical transport (CPO-T) equipment supplier in the world.
By leading advancements in the OTN field, especially 100G OTN, ZTE has won a number of industry awards. In 2012, ZTE deployed the national commercial network for T-Mobile Austria using a WDM automatic switch optical network (WASON) intelligent OTN solution. This deployment won the “Backbone Optical Network Innovation Award” from Global Telecommunications Business (GTB). In 2013, ZTE’s 100G products won “Best Optical Product – 100G” at the 15th annual WDM & Next Generation Optical Networking forum.
ZTE has also set a number of new world records in fields other than 100G transmission technology including 400G/1T. In November 2014, ZTE announced that it had set the world record for using only erbium doped optical fiber amplifiers (EDFA) to transmit 16×1 Tb/s signals in full configuration at C band for 3,500km in a test from the 863 Project. In March 2014, using its patented technology, ZTE successfully transmitted 440Gb/s single-carrier polarization-multiplexed quadrature-phase-shift keyed (PM QPSK) signals of 20 optical channels for 3,600km in single-mode fibers when the spectrum efficiency is increased to 4bit/s/Hz, setting a world record in 400G high-speed transmission field. In October 2013, ZTE and China Telecom jointly completed a real-time system experiment for T-bit ultra-long haul (ULH) optical transmission and set the world record of 3,200km in real-time transmission. Currently the real-time optical transmission system has the longest transmission distance and highest transmission rate.
