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.

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.

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."
