ZTE Corporation has signed a new 100G optical transportation network (OTN) contract with Reliance Communications India.
Communications Reliance Communications India needs faster network
The company will also provide its ZXONE series of equipment to satisfy the multi-service access and high integration requirements of Reliance Communications India , with ZTE’s low total cost of ownership (TCO) being one of the major factors in Reliance Communications India ’s decision to partner with the company.
Currently occupying 14.35 percent of Indian market share, Reliance Communications India is the fourth largest operator in India. With mobile networks entering the age of long term evolution (LTE), Reliance Communications India’s synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) was not able to meet growing data communication demands.
ZTE’s 100G OTN solution allows Reliance Communications India to quickly develop Pune and Hyderabad’s 100G metro area transmissions and greatly relieve long-term evolution (LTE) bandwidth requirement pressures. ZTE’s leading OTN research and development platform and 100G OTN products satisfy Reliance Communications India’s requirements with their high performance, easy maintenance and low cost.
According to the latest optical network product market report by Ovum, ZTE increased its market share in optical networking products to 28 percent globally in Q2 2015, higher than any other Asia Pacific vendor. ■
