SHENZHEN, China -- 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, won a tender by China Unicom for BRAS (Broadband Remote Access Server) data communications equipment used in metropolitan area networks. The purchase of ZTE’s ZXR10 M6000 equipment accounted for 45% of China Unicom’s tender for new network construction, and covers 15 provinces, including Liaoning, Shandong, Hebei, Tianjin, Shanxi, Henan, Guangdong and Zhejiang. The latest contract win followed a similar BRAS network tender by China Unicom in 2011, when ZTE won a 17% share. ZTE’s ZXR10 M6000 equipment are now deployed in 17 provinces, and are the mainstream products for China Unicom’s BRAS and SR networks.

The ZXR10 M6000’s simultaneous support for both BRAS and SR platforms, and the reliable user connectivity offered by the ``hot standby’’ technology are the most significant reasons for the deployment by China Unicom. The ability to support IPv6 and other evolving technologies also enables China Unicom to make a smooth transition to next-generation Internet technology and resolve issues such as the shortage of Internet addresses. With excellent price-performance characteristics, the ZXR10 M6000 helps maximize China Unicom’s return on investment.

As China Unicom adds broadband users at a rapid pace, and with the increased ability of BRAS products to support SR functions, the integration of the BRAS and SR platforms will become more apparent. ZTE’s ZXR10 M6000 BMSG product meets customer needs, and helps operators achieve significant network savings, in line with the overall development of the industry.
