ZTE Wins China Telecom Cloud Computing Tender

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 04 January 2013 Release date- 04012013 - Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation ('ZTE') (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, announced it won contracts in China Telecommunications Corp.'s tender for cloud computing services.


ZTE was awarded contracts to provide cloud desktop system and server virtualization software to China Telecom, breaking the traditional monopoly of overseas vendors. The winning bids are testament to ZTE's superior cloud computing technology and the company's increasing experience in cloud project deployments.

ZTE developed its proprietary iECS server virtualization software and iRAI cloud desktop system, and owns the underlying intellectual property. iECS combines the ZEN and KVM virtualization engines with ZTE's operating system technology and management software to provide comprehensive virtualization capabilities, while iRAI supports data traffic redirection and virtual applications, providing reliable virtual connectivity. The desktop cloud system supports multiple desktops for a single user, and is compatible with most mainstream terminals.

China Telecom and ZTE have been long-term partners in research and development of cloud computing technologies. ZTE contributed to the standardization and planning of China Telecom's cloud computing technologies, including PASS, and the two companies are collaborating to develop cloud computing standards under the direction of ITU-T.

For telecommunication operators, cloud computing represents an important opportunity - computing technologies will help operators build networks that are optimized for serving users with applications. China Telecom has a strong network operation with a big customer base, and is able to combine computing capabilities and information storage to provide ubiquitous cloud services.

ZTE is among the earliest participants in the research and development of cloud computing technologies. In this segment, ZTE has released the CoCLoud system, the iECS virtualization software product, the iRAI virtual desktop product, the iROS cloud computing management platform, the iBOX cloud terminal device, and the cloud storage product CSS2000. In 2012, ZTE rolled out the USapphire product for data centers, driving the adoption of cloud computing services in the public sector and enterprises. Apart from providing cloud computing products to domestic and international operators, ZTE also plays a leading role in ITU-T's cloud computing research groups to promote the industry's development.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
