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."
By the end of December 2013, ZTE had won 140 LTE\EPC commercial contracts from around the world. With its leading end-to-end LTE solutions and cooperation in the global market, ZTE has successfully deployed its products in 70 percent of countries with LTE networks, with operators including Bharti, China Mobile, China Telecom, Hutchison, Telenor, TeliaSonera, Vodafone, and VimpelCom.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
