ZTE on Tuesday announced it has won the bid for the 5G IPRAN project of True, a telecom operator in Thailand.
True will use ZTE’s 5G Flexhaul solution to build ultra-broadband and evolvable 5G IPRAN network to achieve unified transport of 2G/3G/4G/5G mobile services, FTTx, WLAN access and enterprise private line services.
ZTE said its 5G Flexhaul solution is composed of the 5G access device, ZXCTN 6000, the 5G transport flagship product, ZXCTN 9000-E and the integrated management and control platform, ZENIC ONE.
ZTE said its ZENIC ONE management and control platform enables Zero-Touch service creation, and supports the path computation and re-optimization based on latency, bandwidth or IGP Cost. The ZTE platform is capable of mirror fault simulation, traffic prediction and network optimization.
ZTE’s 5G Flexhaul solution supports Class D high-precision clock synchronization, Slice+ over FlexE, and multi-scenario protection mechanisms against link faults, node faults and signal degradation.
By the end of May 2020, ZTE had shipped over 60,000 5G transport network devices worldwide.
ZTE’s IP Edge Router market share ranked No.3 globally and No.2 in Asia-Pacific market in 2019, according to the mobile backhaul market share report of Omdia.
