ZTE takes lead in optical network market

ZTE has increased optical network market share in 2019 by 2.482 percent, grabbing the No.1 position globally, according to the latest market report of Omdia.
ZTE US challengeZTE grew the most market share in the segments of Metro WDM, Backbone WDM, and OTN Switching, and increased the most share in the regions of Asia-Pacific, South and Central America.

ZTE has more than 400 patents and full range of in-house core chipsets in the field of optical transmission.

ZTE said its Flex Shaping algorithm optimizes network capacity, spectral efficiency, and transmission distance by virtue of joint shaping in both electrical and optical domains, thereby greatly improving network capacity, flexibility, and scalability.

In China Mobile’s multi-vendor test in its existing network in 2019, ZTE’s 400G single-carrier refreshed the transmission record and obtained the two best results: the longest transmission distance and the maximal code patterns.

In 2019, ZTE built the world’s largest all-optical network for China Telecom in northwest China.

ZTE has deployed more than 400 100G and beyond-100G networks worldwide, with a total network fiber length of over 400,000 kilometers.

To date, ZTE has obtained 46 commercial 5G contracts in major markets, such as Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (MEA).
