ZTE launches new U-government solution in African telecom market

Telecom Lead Africa: Chinese gear maker ZTE announced
the launch of a new U-government solution in African telecom market.

The launch was announced at the sixth Annual e-Gov Africa
Forum 2012 in Gaborone, Botswana.

The introduction of a new U-government solution will assist
ZTE to gain more marketshare. In the past few years, ZTE has doubled its sales
revenue year-on year-in the government and enterprise network market, faster
than any other company in the same time period.

ZTE’s products and solutions for government have been
deployed in more than 40 countries, including China, Chile, Egypt, Ghana,
Malaysia, Mauritius, Nigeria and Romania.

The Chinese equipment maker claims that the U-government
solution is adaptable to different systems in a number of environments and is
based on the five-stage ZTE E-Government Solution Construction Model (ZESCM).

ZTE will use the five-stage model to produce customized
information and communications infrastructure and office automation. This will
assist governments with creating high-speed, reliable information interactive
systems that enhance informatization levels, improve government efficiency and
realize sustainable development.

Future government and enterprise networks will be an
amalgamation of CT, IT, the-Internet-of-things, and other platforms. It is
important for us to assist with the development of those networks in the Middle
East and Africa,” said ZTE Senior Vice President Wang Jiaran.

Recently, African mobile operator Movicel will launch a
commercial LTE network in Angola in association with ZTE.
