ZTE Helps MNC Deploy First Ultra-Broadband Internet Service in Indonesia

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, is pleased to help MNC Kabel Mediacom deploy the first ultra-broadband Internet service in Indonesia, delivering connection speeds of up to 200Mbps to users for a richer and more interactive online experience.

The MNC Play Media Service of MNC Kabel Mediacom leverages ZTE’s industry-leading gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology and FTTH (Fiber to the Home) technologies. On completion, MNC Kabel Mediacom’s network will connect at least 2 million home passes and in at least ten major cities across Indonesia. MNC Kabel Mediacom is a part of Media Nusantara Citra (MNC Media), the largest media group in South East Asia.

“MNC Play Media and ZTE share the same vision on how the companies are able to contribute in the development of Information, Communication, Technology (ICT), and multimedia in Indonesia,” said Ade Tjendra, Commercial Director at MNC Kabel Mediacom. “We selected ZTE's solutions over other solutions for its capabilities to provide end-to-end solution and service platform that has been proven globally.”

“This strategic partnership will help us to deliver higher broadband internet speed and richer interactive multimedia content to a wider market in Indonesia,” Mr. Tjendra said.

MNC Group is the largest and the only integrated media, broadcasting, entertainment and telecommunication group in Indonesia with operations that encompasses content production, content distribution, television and radio broadcasting, newspaper, magazine, tabloids, internet & data telecommunication operator, and value added services provider. MNC is expanding their business by entering the Broadband Internet Service Provider & Cable Pay TV market in Indonesia.

“ZTE is proud to be the strategic partner of MNC Kabel Mediacom in providing the most advanced broadband connection technology,” said Mei Zhonghua, President Director of PT. ZTE Indonesia. “The new network, which is supported by our leading GPON-based FTTH infrastructure, will provide great competitive benefits to MNC Kabel Mediacom by enabling higher bandwidth to deliver richer interactive multimedia content and improved customer experience.”

ZTE's end-to-end FTTH Solutions deliver high bandwidth of up to 10 Gbps and low-latency transmission (less than 1ms), providing a reliable and stable connection that is suitable for next generation multimedia and interactive applications. ZTE’s FTTH solutions are deployed by operators around the world, including Spain’s Jazztel and Colombia’s ETB.
