ZTE to Make Its Mark as Key Driver of Global 5G Development at MWC 2019 with Extensive Showcase of Supreme 5G Experiences

SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile Internet, today announced detailed updates on the showcase of its latest commercial development of end-to-end 5G technologies at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, which will commence on February 25, 2019. It will also share insights and showcase its best business practices in the exploration of new 5G services and collaboration with global operators on network deployment.

During MWC, ZTE will also unveil its first 5G flagship device which is scheduled to roll-out in the European and Chinese markets in the first half of 2019. ZTE’s latest Blade V10 Series will also be introduced, reinforcing ZTE’s ongoing commitment to delivering unprecedented user experiences for young consumers around the world. Other exciting technical demonstrations include 5G Indoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), Internet of Things ( IoT), Internet of Vehicles (IoV) and Mobile Broadband (MBB) solutions.

In alignment with the theme of this year’s event, ‘Intelligent Connectivity’, ZTE will also highlight its end-to-end intelligent minimalist networks, featuring full service enablement and biosphere construction, superior performance, minimal architecture, as well as intelligent and agile fully converged 5G Radio Access Network (RAN).

In addition, ZTE will also showcase its Unisite solution which deploys serialized base station products. Defined by their high integration, high performance, multi-frequency and multi-mode capabilities, these products are designed for telecommunications operators that are ready to undertake their 5G commercial developments. The Unisite solution simplifies 5G network deployment, reducing costs while increasing efficiency. Leveraging Service-based Architectures (SBA), ZTE’s industry-first 5G Common Core solution supports the full access and convergence of 2G/3G/4G/5G/fixed networks as well as 3GPP R15 SA and NSA, enabling the implementation of the architecture in one single step.

ZTE is primed and ready for the full commercial development of 5G. The company has completed the world’s first 5G mobile terminal-based end-to-end 5G service site verification, solidifying its position at the forefront of 5G solutions. As a leader in this field, ZTE remains committed to working with industry partners for the construction of a more open ecosystem by promoting 5G commercial deployment and establishing network security and compliance systems.

“With end-to-end advantages in technology, ZTE is dedicated to creating a wireless network characterized by supreme abundant 5G services, supreme intelligent 5G O&M and supreme simple 5G deployment for operators in the 5G era,” said Ms. Cui Li, Vice President of ZTE Corporation. “With a series of commercial products that can support all Radio Access Technologies (RAT) and all scenarios, ZTE will be able to build simple and converged networks for operators worldwide. Empowered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), ZTE is leveraging ubiquitous intelligence to build an ultra-smart on-demand 5G network with unprecedented improvements in network performance and efficiency.”

Comprehensive lineup of ZTE solutions at MWC 2019
ZTE is uniquely positioned to fully support the global 5G commercialization process with its comprehensive suite of end-to-end solutions that help operators build simple intelligent 5G commercial networks. At MWC, the company will share practical experience gained from 5G deployment and management with operators to fully demonstrate the commercial capabilities of Standalone (SA) and Non-standalone (NSA) networks. These will include:

  • A live broadcast of ZTE’s combined 5G and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) solution for sports venues and stadiums. The audience will witness a low latency, multiple-angle instant replay audio-visual experience in action.
  • An outline of ZTE’s cloud virtual reality (VR) applications, personalized intelligent network designs, and 5G intelligent manufacturing applications with large bandwidth, low latency and high reliability.
  • A performance by a 5G-based robot which is connected remotely to its operator via a live 5G network, featuring real-time control, down to the millisecond, and culminating in the presentation of a man-machine dance.
  • On Monday, February 25, from 3pm to 7pm CET, ZTE and GSMA will co-host the 2019 5G Summit in Hall 8, where industry guests and partners will discuss the shaping of the future of 5G through the deployment of 5G networks and the innovation of the business model.

At the forefront of 5G with ZTE
The first step in constructing a 5G network is the selection of transport technology. The three key application scenarios of 5G will determine the direction of innovation in terms of improvements and upgrades to the network infrastructure. To lay the foundation for the 5G era, ZTE has invested heavily in multiple levels of network infrastructure:

  • 5G transport technologies: ZTE’s full-scenario 5G transport end-to-end product is ready for commercialization and is equipped with leading technologies covering forwarding latency, network slicing, ultra-high accuracy, clock synchronization and so on.
  • Optical networks: ZTE has greatly improved the transmission performance of networks by beyond 100G and the deployment of its patented technology. It is also the only manufacturer that can deliver up to 200G without regeneration in the backbone Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (WDM) network. The next-generation flagship optical access platform, TITAN, equipped with the highest level of capability and integration, leads the industry in intergenerational integration, fixed mobile convergency and ICT convergence. It is also leveraged to simplify access infrastructure and optimize end-user experience.
  • Content networks: ZTE continues to take the lead in integrating Content Delivery Network (CDN) technology, with global system capacity exceeding 100 million users, while innovation in 5G architecture supports the continuous evolution of content network and new business scenarios.

ZTE is committed to building a 5G ecosystem and addressing any technical challenges that emerge during the transition by providing end-to-end solutions: from chipset, core technologies and serialized end-to-end products, to network convergence, long-term evolution (LTE), pan-artificial intelligence applications and 5G application exploration. In collaboration with ZTE, operators will be able to realize an ultra-simple, supremely intelligent 5G commercial network that delivers positive, incomparable 5G experience.
