ZTE announces vertical broadband solution

broadband speed test in India
ZTE announced its vertical broadband solution (v2.0) at the fourth Connect To Connect Summit (C2C) taking place from 19 to 21 July at Pretoria, South Africa.

The Chinese telecom network company has revealed that its vertical broadband solution will work on the design and construction requirements of national backbone broadband networks along-with broadband networks for power, rail transportation, radio and television.

ZTE has offered a series of special solutions, such as vertical broadband and smart city at the C2C Summit.

ZTE has been involved in more than 150 smart city projects across China, and has carried out smart city projects in more than 140 cities and 40 countries with its products and services sold to over 500 operators in more than 160 countries.

Broadband network deployment can lead to increased development of information within countries, cities and even enterprises. ZTE executives say there is a need for creating new requirements for broadband architecture, applications and management models.

Scope and challenges faced while undergoing the process of information development within countries, cities and enterprises were also debated over with experts from around the world.

Information has to be shifted from conventional channels to modified platforms where all data is available together, for development in smart cities. Information from government departments, software industries and solutions to governmental matters such as social stability, traffic and attracting investment should be interlinked to bring more efficient information system in place.

The ZTE pipeline solution and the application of an overall smart city solution will lead to urban nerve endings built from handheld terminals, cameras and sensors linked to the control center, which will be connected to the infrastructure network. This will lead to combining of all the urban infrastructure networks into a unified bearer network and making network interconnection practical, claims ZTE.

The ZTE solution can result in a unified data platform responsible for analyzing and processing big data by leading to the growth and extension of the platform’s capability and applications. All sub-systems on the application layer will share a common portal which will aid to serve citizens fast and will end up in service-oriented governments.

ZTE also conveyed that it will work with African governments and enterprises to build a roadmap for the development of the African ICT industry for upbringing smart technology sector in the African continent.

Meanwhile, ZTE demonstrated a single-carrier 800G long-haul transmission result, capable of 120-Gbaud WDM 16QAM signals transmission over 1,200-km terrestrial fiber links, recently.
