ZTE Releases Distributed Precise Cloud White Paper

2 April 2021, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today has released the Distributed Precise Cloud White Paper, which aims to explore more feasible cloud infrastructure solution to meet differentiated user requirements in various industries.  According to the white paper, telecom cloud, with the rapid development of 5G and edge computing technologies, has gradually evolved into a distributed cloud architecture of "edge + core". The architecture can be flexibly deployed in industrial parks and business buildings to provide network services of ultra-high bandwidth and ultra-low latency.  Based on the various requirements of industry customers, flexible network adaptation capability has become one of the key points to build an industry cloud. Operators need to precisely focus on application scenarios and provide differentiated solutions. In addition, they also need to provide a low-cost trial and error mode to reduce the threshold of start-up.   Under these circumstances, ZTE has proposed the concept of distributed precise cloud. On one hand, ZTE concentrates on the separated structure of telecoms network and provides adaptive IaaS resource services, based on service features and environmental conditions in different network locations. This has realized integrated supply and O&M for resources in the whole network, so that resources can be scheduled on demand and efficiently used.   On the other hand, focusing on the key requirements of industry scenarios, ZTE has built the service-based PaaS technology stack with a unified architecture. And it has been widely applied in the industry, helping implement quick selection and streamline deployment in accordance with scenarios. Besides, ZTE has built customized self-service platforms for industry users, further meeting the transformation and innovative requirements of different industries.  ZTE is a world-leading provider of integrated communications solutions. The company has been committed to providing innovative technologies and product solutions for operators and enterprise customers in more than 160 countries and regions.

ZTE Releases 5G Messaging Technical White Paper

23 March, 2021, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today has released the 5G Messaging Technical White Paper, which fully elaborates on ZTE's 5G Messaging solution. The white paper aims at building the 5G killer service, to better serve the public and thousands of industries. The messaging service is the basic service for operators. ZTE, by virtue of its 5G network technologies, took the lead in proposing the 5G Messaging solution. With the advent of the latest technological evolution, standard development and terminal development of 5G networks, 5G Messaging is divided into three categories of messaging services: 5G Short Message Service (SMS): According to the 3GPP technical standards and terminal capabilities, the 5G networks and terminals will support SMS over NAS(Non Access Stratum), which is an SMS function based on 5G NR access. The 5G SMS still provides the basic SMS services, with the functions and experiences being the same as those of the traditional SMS. 5G Rich Media Messaging: For a long time, the functions and experiences of the traditional text messages cannot satisfy the requirements of users, and restrict the development of industry applications. In the 5G era, the traditional text messaging is upgraded to GSMA UP2.4 with 5G rich media messaging and business messaging services, to complete a comprehensive upgrade of its functions, features, experiences and services.  5G Internet of Things (IoT) Messaging: With 5G IoT Messaging standards and technologies that feature massive connections, low bandwidth, and lightweight, 5G IoT Messaging has achieved the messaging communication and commercial applications among objects, people and applications.  ZTE is a leading equipment vendor for the global 5G Messaging platform. With rich experience in network construction, ZTE also has the excellent commercial operation experience in the world's largest messaging platform, where single LAN exceeds 100 million user scale and massive terminals are well-adapted. Moreover, ZTE's 5G Messaging platform sent the world's first 5G message in Hangzhou, China on April 3rd, 2020. Moving forward, ZTE will be committed to helping operators construct the telecoms ecosystem 2.0 towards the prosperity of the telecoms industry. Click the link to download the white paper:

ZTE releases a global 5G messaging cooperation plan to encourage operators to join "0 CAPEX Trial"

23 February 2021, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today has released a global 5G messaging cooperation plan at the 5G Messaging Summit Forum hosted by GSMA and ZTE. This plan aims to encourage global industry chain partners to build a global 5G message ecosystem and facilitate the prosperity of global 5G messaging services together.  In the 5G era, the upgrading from traditional short message to 5G message integrated on RBM (RCS Business Messaging) has been widely adopted by global operators. Overseas leading operators in developed countries such as USA, Japan and South Korea have all deployed RCS services on a large scale. However, due to less investments and immature ecology, many small and medium-sized operators are still hesitating over whether to join 5G messaging services or not. At the forum, ZTE has released the 5G messaging public cloud solution, and also strongly launched the "0 CAPEX Trial" action in the cooperation plan, encouraging global operators to join the public cloud-based "0 CAPEX" 5G messaging trial.  ZTE will deploy 5G messaging centers and HUB centers, based on the data centers of public cloud providers from regions such as Asia Pacific (Singapore), Middle East (Dubai) and Europe (Frankfurt), aiming to provide a 5G messaging solution with nearby access, low costs, high reliability and one-stop interconnection.  Meanwhile, ZTE, by virtue of its Openlab service verification and incubation platform, has cooperated with the third-party service providers to introduce mature 5G messaging applications to realize fast overseas replication, shorten the service launch period and meet the service development requirements in different countries.  "5G messaging has ushered in a new bright era. It should be developed globally to build a global 5G messaging ecosystem," said Wang Quan, the vice president of ZTE. "ZTE has been committed to promoting the development of global 5G messaging. We hope that more operators and industry customers can join us to build the future of global RBM development."  “As a basic global communication service, 5G messaging is entrusted with the historical mission of upgrading traditional short message. The potential global users are over 4 billion. Partners in the global industrial chain should work together to create more commercial values, further build 5G messaging as an information infrastructure for global interconnection and intercommunication, and bring the equal benefits of 5G technology and digital services to billions of ordinary users.” continued Mr. Wang Quan.
