12 Sep 2016, Amsterdam – 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 unveiled its ZXV10 B860G home media gateway to deliver an enhanced viewing, entertainment and networking experience to homes around the world. Integrating 4K ultra high definition (UHD) with a home gateway and wireless router, it has won praise from participating operators for its innovative performance.
Firstly, ZTE’s B860G is an advanced set top box (STB), which integrates the industry-leading super Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processing unit (CPU) and penta-core Mali graphics processing unit (GPU) to realise UHD 4K (3840×2160@60 frames per second (fps) 10-Bit colour), which provides users with an excellent video experience. It uses the industry-leading Android TVTM OS with a brand-new user interface design based on material design, and has Google Store built in to support applications from the Google ecosystem. The application also includes adapted TV screen games, over the top (OTT) video and other third party applications and[[ its embedded voice search function provides a powerful global search function. Furthermore, it is fully compatible with Android applications which integrate with ZTE’s smart home solutions, such as Multi-Screen, HD Visual Communication, Family Album, Home IOT Network and Voice Assistant.
Secondly, ZTE’s B860G is an advanced home gateway and wireless router, which integrates one uplink wide area network (WAN) port and two downlink local area network (LAN) ports, all of which are gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports to achieve the broadband access and network speeds expected by modern families. B860G uses 2T2R multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antennas to improve access speed and anti-interference ability. It also fully supports routing, bridging, multi Wi-Fi service set identifier/virtual local area network (SSID/VLAN) access, quality of service (QOS), firewalls and other services. The hardware specification enables B860G to meet the requirements of connectivity from smart home devices.
Global broadband services and video services have been developing rapidly in 2016. Smart STBs with integrated gateways have the advantage of wireless and easy deployment to significantly reduce the cost of operator deployment. Fang Hui, ZTE vice president, said that B860G has become an important part of the “ZTE Big Video 4K Plus Solution”, and helps consolidate ZTE’s leading position in the global smart STB market.
