LAS VEGAS -- June 18, 2014

Today ZTE, one of the leading telecommunications companies worldwide and
fastest growing smartphone manufacturer in the United States, introduced the
first ever smart visual collaboration solution at InfoComm – the foremost
video communications conference. ZTE is leading a new era of VCS, transforming
“functional VCS” to “smart VCS.” ZTE’s smart VCS terminal features open
architecture, a unified platform that supports fast integration of third-party
applications, and customized value-added services to smoothly interconnect
with various applications such as Skype and Lync.

Technology integration, rapid development of video code, cloud computing and
mobile Internet has helped launch the popularity of video communication among
large enterprises and industries, SMEs and mobile workers. Due to the closed
nature of traditional VCS, it cannot adapt to today’s requirements for
technologies and market integration. ZTE’s smart VCS will help transform the
industry from independence and closure to openness and integration.

At InfoComm, ZTE launched its smart TelePresence integration solution for the
first time, whose high integration has solved the requirement of the user for
communication. As the first type of smart TelePresence product that has
multiple types of built-in software, this system supports the built-in office
software, local office services, and e-whiteboards. Without any accessories
such as externally-configured gateway, the system can realize the
interconnection with Skype, GTalk, Sametime, Lync, WeChat and other IM
software. The smart TelePresence system can also provide secure and convenient
ways of sharing the data, directly storing and accessing the public and
private cloud resources and conveniently sharing the information. With the
help of openness and integration of the smart TelePresence system, any 3rd
party can, according its own requirement, customize various value-added
services integrated with the TelePresence system rather than depend on the
original vendor. Therefore, TelePresence will enter an open, integrated, and
diversified “smart” era.

“The smart terminal will lead the VCS to the era of openness and integration
with more development potentials, allowing the user to use the solution more
conveniently,” said Qian Min, Product GM of ZTE’s Unified Communication and
Collaboration (UC&C). “ZTE will be glad to cooperate with all UC&C vendors to
more efficiently serve more enterprises and realize smart communication by
using smart technologies.”

ZTE, as the world-leading ICT solution provider and among the top 3 VCS and
terminal providers worldwide, has started the R&D of video conferencing since
1994, providing various VCS products and solutions including the VCS platform,
the conference room terminal, the individual terminal, the integrated
TelePresense to meet diversified requirements of its customers. ZTE has been
engaged in the product R&D and innovation of technology and mode. Since 2013,
ZTE has launched the first VCS terminal that supports H.265, the first overall
view T900 that supports the four-channel HD 1080P60 in the industry.
Currently, ZTE has put hundreds of thousands of VCS products into commercial
use, serving many operators and industry users around the world.
