SHENZHEN, China -- July 3, 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, is pleased to be awarded the most new
contracts in phase 1 of China Telecom Group’s 2013 CDMA network procurement
program, the sixth successive year in which ZTE had been entrusted as the
leading CDMA vendor in the China market.

ZTE, the global leader in CDMA wireless technology, is proud to support China
Telecom in network expansion and optimization by providing innovative and
leading-edge solutions. As more consumers access mobile Internet services on
smartphones, operators globally face more stringent demands on network
capacity and quality. With the 2013 network procurement program, China Telecom
is strongly-positioned to grasp the new opportunities in CDMA services and
meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of subscribers.

“We are fully committed to offering China Telecom the most advanced products
and solutions,” said Fan Xiaobing, vice president of ZTE. “ZTE always strives
to deliver the best technology, and the most customized services.”

To meet the requirements of China Telecom, ZTE was the first company to launch
the SDR-based distributed base stations in the China market. SDR technology
helps operators migrate from a network architecture based on macro stations in
metropolitan areas, to a more distributed architecture that effectively
enhances indoor and rural area coverage. With zero equipment room footprint,
low power consumption, and convenient installation, SDR technology has earned
the trust of China Telecom across all provincial and organizational levels.

In 2012, ZTE launched the new generation radio remote unit R8881, delivering a
more compact and lower power consumption solution to China Telecom. In
addition, to help China Telecom overcome the issue of 3G signaling storms, ZTE
developed a customized signaling storm solution, which resolved the problem of
signaling storms always caused by on-line applications.

In addition to products and technical solutions, Operation and Maintenance
(O&M) is also a key factor for operators in their network investment
decisions. To meet China Telecom's requirements for lower manpower investment
in network planning, network optimization and O&M, ZTE launched the NetMax
network optimization software which provides network troubleshooting, timely
network optimization prompts, automatic network performance data analysis, and
guidance for provincial companies to perform number distribution by extracting
and analyzing network operating data. NetMax is widely appreciated by China
Telecom at all provincial and organizational levels.

To date, ZTE has shipped more than 355,000 units of CDMA base stations, with
cumulative wireless capacity of 380 million lines. ZTE is the leading CDMA
provider worldwide with 32.6% market share globally, and has a strong position
on the China market.
