SHENZHEN, China -- February 26, 2013

ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code:
000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment,
network solutions and mobile devices launched a new full-outdoor microwave
transmission system based on patented technology at the 2013 Mobile World
Congress, offering substantial performance enhancements to meet the needs of
today’s ultra-fast LTE networks.

Based on a new design architecture, the ZXMW NR8950 microwave system can be
deployed for large-capacity transmission, helping operators roll out networks
with dense coverage, and reduced installation footprint. The design advantages
of ZXMW NR8950 enable operators to overcome the challenges of building
high-density small-cell networks for large-capacity data transmission, while
site installation space is limited.

With the advent of LTE networks, there is increased demand from operators for
large-capacity data transmission on Ethernet networks. The industry-leading
1024QAM modulation mode on the ZXMW NR8950 system uses high modulation and
multi-level data compression technology to increase throughput substantially,
with a theoretical speed of 1.6 Gigabits per second.

The ZXMW NR8950 system is equipped with a patented storage solution pioneered
by ZTE that is remotely configurable. A built-in MicroSD card can store data
on configuration set-up, license, and log information, enabling customers to
quickly transfer settings from existing equipment to new equipment, greatly
cutting operation and maintenance costs, and reducing the time of network
interruption. In addition, the ZXMW NR8950 can interchange with the indoor
units of the ZXMW NR8250 for hosting operation mode, reducing the difficulty
of commissioning and maintenance, and can be simply deployed by operators.

ZTE is committed to the research and development of new microwave products,
and has established six microwave research and development centers globally.
By the end of 2012, ZTE has cooperated with more than 150 operators from 90
countries to build microwave transmission networks.
