13 October 2016, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today exhibited outstanding market performance in fixed-line access from 3Q 2015 to 2Q 2016. ZTE ranked first in next-gen passive optical network (PON) optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network terminal/optical network unit (ONT/ONU) based on rolling 4Q revenues. ZTE continued to gain market share in fixed-line access according to Ovum’s ‘Market Share Report: 2Q16 FTTx, DSL, and CMTS’ released in September 2016.
During this period, ZTE unveiled the world’s first 10G PON smart gateway, which supports 10G EPON or XG-PON1 uplink interfaces and delivers the best performance capable of 10G PON. Leveraging a software architecture based on a smart operation system, ZTE 10G PON smart gateway supports the flexible loading of self-operated and third-party services, and enables the carriers to take full advantage of open and ecological Internet.
Mr. Cai Jingzhe, VP of ZTE, said: “The bandwidth-hungry services represented by big video are driving the development of broadband networks. At present, 4K resolution has been the standard configuration of large-screen televisions. Virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR) services are on the rise and will have a broader application. Fixed-line broadband will be able to achieve better performance from 100Mbps to 500Mbps or 1000Mbps in four-to-five years. Facing ever-increasing bandwidth requirements, the upgrade from EPON and GPON to 10G PON is an inevitable trend in fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network construction. With ultra-high bandwidth delivering capabilities and able to cater for future bandwidth demands, 10G PON will become the development direction for fixed-line access technologies.”
