HONG KONG -- Hong Kong has become the latest city to benefit from ZTE Corporation's NGN technology. Wharf T&T - the city's fastest growing fixed telecommunications network operator -is now using ZTE 's NGN system to provide its subscribers integrated services combining voice, data and video communications.

The Wharf T&T network is the latest NGN commercial application for ZTE, which deployed its Softswitch solution as early as 2001, when it helped China Netcom build China's first commercial Softswitch network, which covered more than ten major cities. It has since won a contract for the world's first national network in Romania and a further project from Digitel, the Philippines' second largest fixed line operator.

Only last week, ZTE announced that it had been chosen by the ITU in Geneva to draft standards to cover the requirements and framework for crucial end-to-end quality of service (QoS) architecture for NGN (Y.e2eqos.1) and a QoS framework for IP-based access networks (Y.ipaqos).

"ZTE's ongoing commitment to spending about 10% of annual revenues on R & D has given the company a lead position on deployment around the world," said Mr. Huang Dabin, Vice General Manager, Network Division, ZTE.

"The Wharf T&T network is operating in one of the world's most application-hungry environments, with a customer base that knows what it wants from its communications. Against this backdrop, ZTE is proving its NGN solution is ready to meet the demands of developed markets anywhere."
