SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (Shenzhen: 000063, Hong Kong: 0763), China’s largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless solutions provider, has signed a contract with Telefonica, the world’s third largest operator and the largest fixed line operator in Latin-America, to provide DSL CPE to Telefonica Brazil.

The contract win accounts for approximately 50% of the contracts awarded by Telefonica Brazil, and follows the success of DSL modems in Telefonica Peru and Telefonica Argentina earlier this year, as well as recent strategic partnerships with Greece Telecom, Portugal Telecom and France Telecom.

The announcement by Telefonica of the selection of ZTE follows extensive cooperation between the companies in multiple product areas since early 2004. .“The contract win is underpinned by our commitment in terms of prompt responses, customised solutions and quality yet cost-effective products. We expect to further expand our cooperation with Telefonica,”said Mr Zhu Dongtang, broadband access product manager at ZTE.

“This deal with the region’s largest fixed line operator caps a series of breakthroughs in the South American marketplace and which, together with partnerships with world-class telecoms operators around the globe, is further proof of ZTE's competencies and competitiveness in the international DSL arena,” added Mr Zhu. “We have been consistently focusing on quality and service, and will further improve our technical support and service capabilities in broadband areas.”

In a separate release:

SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (Shenzhen: 000063, Hong Kong: 0763), China’s largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless solutions provider, has been selected by Telemar, Brazil’s largest fixed line operator, to provide IP-based DSLAM terminals and ATM DSLAM for its DSL infrastructure.

Under the terms of the contract, ZTE will deliver its IP-based DSLAM terminals and ATM DSLAM to Telenor for use in its DSL network in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil’s second largest city with over 12 million people.

The deal covers an important part of the contracts awarded by Telemar, and follows recent strategic partnerships for ZTE with Greece Telecom, Portugal Telecom and France Telecom.

ZTE’s IP DSLAM, while supporting emerging services like IPTV and multi-level QoS, enables the mixed access of multi-services including ADSL, VDSL, SHDSL and LAN. To date, the global shipment of ZTE’s IP DSLAM has exceeded 7,000,000 lines.

“A series of breakthroughs in South American marketplaces, and partnerships with world-class telecoms operators are further proof of ZTE's competencies and competitiveness in the international DSL arena,” said Mr Zhu Dongtang, broadband access product manager at ZTE. “We have been consistently focusing on quality and service, and will further improve our technical support and service capabilities in broadband areas.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
