08 April 2020, 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 it has won the second largest share in China Unicom’s 2020 intelligent MAN (5G Transport) centralized procurement. ZTE has been selected in all of the core aggregation and access bid packages.
China Unicom and ZTE announced a study on 5G intelligent MAN architecture and technical standards in 2018, aimed to fully demonstrate and test the intelligent MAN solution.
ZTE's unique "NP+FlexE+SA" 3-in-1 in-house chipset helps reduce the power consumption per Gbit by 50% compared with the industry level. ZTE’s devices support 50GE and 100GE FlexE, and exclusively allow 25GE FlexE, thereby providing operators with more flexible choices and lower CAPEX.
The centralized procurement for 5G transport equipment in 2020 of three major Chinese operators have now come to an end. ZTE has won the bidding of all the three operators, covering access, aggregation and core network products.
To date, ZTE has shipped nearly 40,000 5G transport devices for commercial deployments in China’s Tier-1 cities like Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen.
