ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, was the fastest-growing vendor in the global LTE market in 2013.
According to the IHS research paper Global LTE Market Analysis, ZTE was one of the top three LTE infrastructure vendors with 17.9 percent market share. In 2013, China witnessed the construction of more 4G networks than the rest of the world combined, with ZTE becoming China's largest LTE solution provider. ZTE gained the largest share of the tender for China Mobile's 4G-LTE Phase I Project, with 26 percent. In the tender for the main equipment for China Telecom's 4G-LTE Network Project, ZTE gained around 40 percent share, and placed its LTE products in 90 percent of the target provinces. In addition, ZTE won the tenders for core network construction in 15 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities.
In the global market, ZTE helped many large telecom operators such as VimpelCom, KPN and Telenor to launch their commercial LTE networks in countries including Russia, Belgium and Hungary.
Time-Division Long-Term Evolution Networks
ZTE is a global leader in the commercial construction of TD-LTE networks. According to the IHS report, ZTE took the leading place in the shipment of Evolved Node B (eNodeB) equipment with more than 70,000 units shipped. By the end of 2013, ZTE had constructed pilot and commercial TD-LTE networks for 66 leading operators in 40 countries, with 35 TD-LTE commercial contracts in Europe, India, CIS, Asia-Pacific, Southeast Asia and America. Some of these contracts have been commercially launched including Airtel India, and Hi3G of Sweden.
In February 2013 ZTE launched Cloud Radio, an innovative solution that helps improve LTE network performance through cloud collaboration and cloud scheduling to offer users a seamless mobile experience and operators 4G+ network performance through self-adaptive collaboration.
Cloud Radio has been adopted by operators including China Mobile and Hong Kong’s CSL. In July 2013, ZTE cooperated with China Mobile to launch a TD-LTE network with Cloud Radio in Guangzhou. In this project, ZTE achieved network-level cross-station cloud collaboration without network upgrades via a third-party packet transport network (PTN), an industry first. In December 2013, ZTE's Cloud Radio solution won the LTE Innovation of the Year Award in Telecom Asia’s 2013 Readers' Choice Innovation & Awards.
Voice over LTE
In June 2013, ZTE conducted the first VoLTE call on China Mobile’s TD-LTE network in Guangzhou. This implementation marked an industry breakthrough in the provision of TD-LTE voice solutions. In December 2013, ZTE partnered with CSL to launch an eSRVCC VoLTE network, which helped improve the usage of network spectrums to increase network capacity and optimise user experience.
As a major developer of the 3GPP system architecture evolution (SAE) and LTE specifications, ZTE has issued 815 SAE and LTE patent statements (13 percent of the global statements in this field) in the IPR database of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
"ZTE helps operators to build high-quality LTE networks through its ability to provide the best services and products. We have achieved excellent performances in the third-party network quality assessment carried out in many regions including Hong Kong, Austria and Belgium. The ZTE Cloud Radio solution has won many industry awards and we are pleased with the recognition it has received," said Zhao Xianming, executive vice president of ZTE. “In 2014, China will play an important global role in 4G network construction."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
