Apr 05, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
ZTE Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, announced today that it has won a contract with China Telecom to build an IMS phase II network in China.
When the project is complete, the IMS network will be the world's largest.
The ZTE-China Telecom contract includes construction of an IMS phase II network covering 12 Chinese provinces, including: Anhui, Chongqing, Guangxi, Guizhou, Henan, Hubei, Jilin, Liaoning, and Ningxia, Shanxi, Tianjing and Yunnan. When the project is complete, ZTE will have acquired more than 60 per cent market share of China Telecom's IMS networks.
The contract is part of a long-term cooperation between the two organizations. It came about in part as a result of ZTE's in-depth understanding of China Telecom's existing networks and its ability to create customized solutions for the project. As part of the project, ZTE will provide fixed network transformation, security networking, development interworking and network evolution to China Telecom.
ZTE IMS serial NEs are based on its Enhanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ETCA) platform. The platform has superior performance and security saves energy. ZTE's fixed network transformation solution can absorb all existing services while improving user experiences.
"As the global leading IMS equipment vendor and long term strategy partner of China Telecom, we are honored to continue our cooperation with this project," said ZTE CN Product CEO Mr. Liu Jianhua. "This full service transformation is an excellent opportunity for both parties."
As of Q4 2011, ZTE has won over 140 IMS commercial or trial contracts worldwide, including Italy, Poland, Spain, Turkey, U.S.A., Singapore, India and China.
