ZTE Corporation says it has been successful in winning orders the latest China Mobile bidding for gigabit passive optical network equipment.
ZTE says it was one of only three successful vendors in China Mobile's tender after a stringent selection process. China Mobile's tender for more than 614,000 optical network units and over 3,000 optical line terminals was a test of each vendor's product quality and capabilities in research and development, solution customization, delivery and technical support. Apart from ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell and FiberHome were the other winning bidders.
ZTE did not release details of the value of the orders, nor when they will be delivered.
According to the latest report on the global fixed-network market by Ovum, ZTE's GPON equipment shipments in the fourth quarter rose 27% sequentially, the fastest growth rate among major vendors, benefiting from demand in the Americas, Europe and China. ZTE is committed to maintain the company's industry-leadership in the global GPON market by offering first-rate products and superior services.
