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 has received the award for ‘Best Optical
Product – 100G’ at the 15th Annual WDM & Next Generation Optical Networking
Forum, held in Monaco.

The award was presented to ZTE in acknowledgement of the capabilities of its
100G Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing/Optical Transport Network
(DWDM/OTN) solutions ZXONE 8000 and ZXWM M920. It follows a number of honours
recently bestowed on ZTE for its OTN products including: the Infovision Award
from Broadband World Forum and the Innovation Award from GTB (Global Telecom

Combining Polarization-Multiplexed Quadrature Phase-Shift-Keying (PM-QPSK)
technology together with the industry-leading Soft Decision Forward Error
Correction (SD-FEC) technology, the ZTE 100G solution substantially improves
100G transmission distance and quality, which can better facilitate network
planning and deployment.

ZTE 100G products support 80x100G super-large-capacity transmission, fully
satisfying operators’ ever-increasing bandwidth requirements. The modular
upgrade mode ensures low investment at the early stage of network construction
and smooth capacity expansion at the later stage to ease the cost pressure. At
the same time, combined with intelligent large-capacity service scheduling
platform, ZTE 100G products fully support various OTN scheduling granularities
so they can address the access requirements of various services.

The multi-degree service scheduling, protection and intelligent restoration
functions help improve network flexibility and security, and reduce operators’
operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) costs. ZTE has completed many
trial network projects related to 100G with mainstream operators from Western
Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific and China and has put 100G
in commercial operation for a number of operators.

“ZTE is delighted to receive this award. We have made a number of significant
technological breakthroughs in 100G and beyond including the ultra-long-haul
transmission of 400Gb/s signals for more than 5000km which furthers the
development of optical telecommunication industry,” said Mr. Xu Ming, General
Manager of ZTE Bearer Network Product Line. “While winning the acknowledgement
of the industry, we will continue to provide most competitive products and
services for global customers.”
