SHENZHEN, China -- China’s largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless solutions provider, has announced today the opening of its new US Corporate Headquarters in Dallas, Texas.

The new office will support ZTE’s long established R&D centres in New Jersey, Dallas and San Diego and signifies the Corporation’s commitment to its progress within the US market. Since 1998, ZTE’s US R&D centres have focussed on three principal communications systems: VoIP, optical broadband access and wireless solutions, and have established ZTE as one of the leading manufacturers of WiMAX technology.

“From our centre in San Diego we have continued to develop products and services for this market and our leading position in WiMAX technology is a result of this approach,” said Mr. James Jiang, President of ZiMAX Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of ZTE Corporation. “This new office will give us the centrally located organization that we need to progress in the US market.”

Already in 2005, ZTE has signed partnership agreements with Qualcomm, Spirent and, in the WiMAX field, with Intel Corporation. This agreement will see Intel and ZTE cooperate to develop and promote standards and specifications for 802.16-based networks.

“Intel and ZTE are both global players in their respective domains. This relationship is significant for global harmonization of WiMAX-based products,” added Jiang.

ZTE’s concentration on the US market continues next month with its major presence at Supercomm 2005, in Chicago. The Corporation will be bringing its largest product portfolio ever to the show, along with its senior personnel from the US and China.

“Supercomm 2005 is a great opportunity for ZTE to show the US market the breadth of our capabilities,” said Dr Sun Zhenge, President of ZTE USA. “Our locally based R&D centres have enabled us to understand the needs of this vast and complex market – now we feel that we have the technological expertise, the ability to respond to customers’ needs and the advantage on cost that cannot be ignored.”
