ZTE leads CDMA base station market with 33 percent share

ZTE announced it has become
the global leader in the CDMA base station market, with a 32.6 per cent share
in first half 2011. 

ZTE has increased its shipments of CDMA base stations steadily in recent years.

In H1 2011, the Chinese
equipment major’s shipment of base-stations had exceeded 320 thousand units,
pushing it to the No.1 spot in the global CDMA base station market, according to
a recent IDC analytical report on the
global CDMA market.

ZTE is the first company in
the telecoms industry to introduce a CDMA/LTE dual-mode system. This innovative
CDMA/LTE product can assist operators with creating smooth upgrades to future
networks and faster evolution to LTE systems. This solution, along with the
company’s EV-DO Rev. B system has been recognized as industry leading.


The CDMA market global has
grown in recent years, especially in Asia Pacific, where it has expanded
rapidly. This, coupled with a loss in market share by several established North
American CDMA suppliers, prompted ZTE to seek new opportunities in CDMA markets
across the globe.

Through these efforts, the
company has acquired leading market share in several emerging nations such as,
China, Indonesia and India. It also has achieved significant breakthroughs in
North America. 

“I believe that leveraging
its leadership position, ZTE as the leader of the global CDMA market will be in
the strongest position in the global emerging markets as it has been the case
in the global CDMA market, and will also create a bigger value for the
operators,” said John Byrne, analyst, IDC.

As of the end of first half
2011, ZTE’s CDMA products have been put into large-scale commercial use by more
than 120 operators in over 70 countries across the world. The company has built
more than 80 CDMA2000 1xEV-DO networks in over 60 countries and regions
including the Czech Republic, India, Indonesia, and the United States.

In addition, ZTE has won 23
contracts for commercial application of LTE solutions from operators including
CSL, Telenor, Sonaecom, and H3G and has deployed LTE test networks in
cooperation with more than 80 operators across the globe. To date, ZTE has
received orders for more than 100,000 LTE terminals from several leading global
