5G transport network built by ZTE and China’s Ningxia

ZTE Corporation and the Ningxia Branch of China Telecom completed the network construction for the cloud-network synergy project, employing device provisioning in a private industrial network and service deployment in some local networks in Ningxia, China.  

This network will be one of the two planes for private industrial slicing networks of the Ningxia Branch of China Telecom. At the same time, the two companies took some measures to help the operator cover user experience-oriented services in all scenarios by providing a solution to interconnect ZTE’s cloud network PE with the STN private network, MAN, e-Cloud, and Centralized Security Platform. 

In 2020, the National Radio and Television Administration began to integrate cable TV networks all over the country with radio & TV 5G network construction, according to the press release. Also, Ningxia Cable TV Network has set a target of constructing a reliable and IP cloudified MAN architecture.  

As such, the project will offer customers expanded network capabilities, including fast network service provisioning, distinguished cloud access private lines and flexible multi-cloud connection.

The capabilities aim to satisfy various digital requirements of different industries and stimulate the growth of the digital economy.

Regarding that project, ZTE presents an intelligent full-service router that’s called “cloud network PE core” which is established on its ROSng routing operating system.

Moreover, ZTE’s multi-service packet platform adopting the industry’s most advanced distributed, large-capacity, non-blocking switching architecture can support high-rate interfaces from GE to 400GE, tackling high-bandwidth service demands. 

The deployments of ZTE’s cluster core routers, alongside the speed-up of 5G network constructions in 2021, will lay a solid foundation for the operators to build the high-quality green 5G transport networks, deliver differentiated operation services, and create the creation of differentiated operation services a high-quality business development pattern.  

ZTE’s T-level 5G access device has the lowest single-node latency (one microsecond) while ensuring ultimate experience of low-latency services. 

As such, ZTE’s new-generation intelligent transport management and control system contains centralized control of ultra-large networks and full-scenario coverage of transport networks. 

As 5G adoption increased in 2021, China Telecom used its network resource as advantages to enhance its competitiveness.
