Based on market research and analysis of Packet Transmission Network (PTN) equipment in China, Frost & Sullivan, a world leader in growth consulting company, recognizes ZTE Corporation (ZTE) with the Best Practice Award - 2010 Competitive Product for Packet Transport Network Industry in recognition of the firm's remarkable efforts toward the development of the PTN market.
With the large-scale launch of 3G services, the business flow increases rapidly, causing higher demand for bandwidth. In the past, TDM (time division multiplexing)-based traditional transmission networks had low delivery efficiency, difficult to adapt to the rapid demand for 3G bandwidth. PTN can meet the needs of operators for 3G and 2G based on the advantage of data service bearer and satisfy the requirement of MAN for more flexible, efficient and low-cost packet transport requirements, to achieve uniform load carriers and network integration, and with the 3G development, to build and expand continuously.
Furthermore, ALL IP has become the general trend of current business development. IP-based mobile networks, in addition to the traditional IP-based business needs, also have comparatively higher demand on the clock, network latency, reliability and safety, thus generating new requirement for the bearer network. Traditional MSTP transmission technology can't meet the long-term developing needs of mobile IP RAN in terms of bearer efficiency, scalability and cost, that's why a new packet-based bearer technology is needed to replace MSTP, so the approach of PTN technology just adapt to its demand.
According to Cheney Ji, Consultant with Frost & Sullivan holds the opinion that along with the all-round advance of three largest operators in 3G base stations and IP-based business applications, PTN network has access to large-scale deployment stage. Currently, three major domestic operators are very concerned about the development of IP-based transmission network. China Mobile has launched a PTN test firstly, followed by China Telecom and China Unicom, who also gradually expand PTN testing and deployment. In 2009, China Mobile invested 3 billion RMB to construct PTN, not only achieving large-scale application in Zhejiang province, the first global 1588v2 time synchronization, but also testing in Guangdong and Jiangsu provinces. May 2010, in order to speed up the TD-SCDMA (Phase IV) network construction, to ensure rapid deployment and stable operation of 3G networks, and to meet the future evolution of LTE development needs, China Mobile invested 5 billion RMB to launch the second collection of PTN equipment.
Among domestic operators' several tests and collection of PTN, ZTE has achieved excellent results depending on the advantages in terms of technology, delivery, and service. In the domestic market, ZTE successfully delivered more than 30 PTN networks. During the Phase I construction of China Mobile PTN, 27 PTN commercial networks were successfully delivered, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong and other provinces. During the Phase II construction of China Mobile PTN in 2010, ZTE ranked first again with outstanding technological competitiveness. In overseas markets, ZTE has reached deep cooperation with dozens of global operators and its productions have been widely used in Finland, Montenegro, Brazil, Malaysia, Vietnam and other countries since 2008.
In conclusion, ZTE's continuous research investment and accumulation, significant dominance in the PTN market, successful cooperation with operators and creative solutions can successfully meet the clients' demands. In recognition of the remarkable efforts of the firm in the global PTN equipment market, Frost & Sullivan is honored to present ZTE with the Best Practice Award-2010 Competitive Product for Packet Transport Network Industry in the PTN equipment market.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development.
Each year, the awards Frost & Sullivan establishes are presented to the company with outstanding performance in various industries. Winners not only have strategic advantage in production innovation, but also have obtained maximum market share through effective marketing strategy in the past two or three years.
