ZTE has become a major player in China Telecom's IMS commercial network construction in China.
This publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions has won the IMS network development contract for five key developed provinces in China, including Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Sichuan.
China Telecom has a vision of "Driving business growth from its network development programmes." The company has been building its IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) network since 2009 and has completed key project milestones in July 2010.
It began the IMS commercial bidding in January 2011, says ZTE that offers advanced "IMS+xPON" fixed network transformation solution and innovative ETCA (Enhanced Telecom Computing Architecture) platform.
ZTE claims it is the only vendor that can support all different access technology (including H.323, No-IMS SIP, MGCP, H.248, V5, PRI etc) with unified ETCA platform in China Telecom.
Smooth network evolution
Both partners, China Telecom and ZTE, have worked closely to build the "IMS+xPON" fixed network transformation model.
This model, according to ZTE, is fully compatible with the existing network services.
ZTE and China Telecom have also teamed on ensuring smooth network evolution, commercially developed by Fujian Telecom first.
"As the world's leading IMS vendor and a long-term strategic partner of China Telecom, ZTE is committed to building a top performance IMS network that delivers an enhanced end-user experience with greater network convergence and efficiency," said Ye Zheng, vice president of Core Network Product, ZTE.
"With our IMS network benefit and efficient project deployment capabilities, ZTE is confident in delivering a top quality solution for China Telecom to enhance its network services."
