KUALA LUMPUR (22 Nov 2022): ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a global leading provider of information and communication technology solutions, successfully presented its case before the 5G Summit and User Congress 2022 in Italy recently.

At the summit held from 8-9 November, ZTE unveiled “Inspire the Digital Transformation” as its theme before various thought leaders, industry partners, leading analysts from GSMA, Intel, CCS, IGF, 3GPP and Global Data, and top-tier operators, among others as the company shared key insights with an audience consisting of over 300 attendees from more than 70 companies. Topics covered at the summit included 5G cases, successful ecosystem, digital transformation, B5G, and sustainability.

“In the future, digital world and real world will interact with each other on a larger scale, breaking the dimensional space, and gradually evolving into a new era of deep and seamless connection,” highlighted Mr. Xiao Ming, Senior Vice President of ZTE.

At the 5G Summit & User Congress, Xiao Ming, ZTE's senior vice president, said the digital and real worlds are moving towards convergence on a larger scale through innovations that allow seamless connections.

“Every step we take today is to faithfully and firmly measure the real world, and to open up and reconstruct new boundaries of the virtual world.”

Digital Transformation is no longer just a simple innovation, and it has become an intelligent connection of different services and industry verticals.

“One of the key missions of 5G in the coming years is to empower digital transformation across all sectors. Last year saw 5G expand commercially into vertical, already exploring economies of scale,” said John Hoffman, CEO of GSMA Ltd. “However, to achieve these economies, industries need to explore many different application scenarios to move 5G from an optional to a must-have technology,” he adds.

“If we want to build stronger businesses and communities, and achieve the sustainable development goals, we simply cannot afford to leave anyone behind. Mobile operators play a key role in the tech innovation ecosystem. Operators can mitigate the route-to-market challenges by providing the platform, customer relationship, and resources to drive their mobile innovation to scale,” noted Lara Dewar, CMO of GSMA Ltd.

With all-scenarios, applications, and innovative connection technologies as the foundation, ZTE has integrated smart digitalisation into all aspects of life, such as smart manufacturing, port, medicine, home, etc., and is also effectively providing underlying technologies to support the digital transformation of industries and society. Business models, technologies, and customer needs are changing at a break-neck pace. Therefore, a collaborative ecosystem helps telco industries not only survive but also thrive in such a demanding era.

Other than showcasing its cutting-edge technologies and solutions such as the Mini 5GC, ZTE also launched the B5G Technology Whitepaper in partnership with GSMA at the event. The successful vertical case demonstration not only hammers on the reality in the 5G era but also demonstrates how the industry can monetise these applications and mass scale.

ZTE experts and leaders also showcased the network's successes throughout the world including in Malaysia, where in 2021 it won the bid to become a vendor for the Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) IP Router, and is partnering with DNB to provide indoor connectivity solutions throughout the country. DNB is the company mandated to deploy Malaysia’s 5G network and infrastructure on an accelerated schedule.

Boasting industry-leading SuperMIMO functionality, ZTE’s indoor connectivity proposition features throughput of between 3 – 4 times that of traditional cells. This ensures superior coverage and signal stability for 5G users, even in highly built-up areas.

This advanced solution will address the traditional bottlenecks seen in other systems, such as when trying to balance between solving “interference” problems and the need to provide adequate capacity.

With its established global track record, ZTE stands out as a credible equipment and systems supplier on the Malaysian market.

To handle the constantly growing 5G traffic from Radio Access Network (RAN) side and Microware (MW) side, ZTE proposed its M6000S series routers to meet high 5G service requirements, as well as its Intelligent SDN solution to make the network more intelligent and effective, while being easier to operate.

“Going forward, the digital world and real world will interact with each other on huge scales, bringing the region into an era of fast and seamless connections,” said Steven Ge, managing director for ZTE Malaysia, who added ZTE is always ready to adopt a collaborative stance to help telco industries thrive even as business models, technologies, and customer needs are changing at a rapid pace.

“With a firm commitment to its vision and mission, ZTE is well poised to enable Malaysia to be seamlessly connected with the world for a better future through digital transformation.”
