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, has won a bid to become the leading partner in the construction of China Unicom’s IMS network.
As part of the project, ZTE will partner with China Unicom to build the provider’s IMS network in 10 northern China provinces and cities including: Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Hebei, Henan and others.
In addition, ZTE will reconstruct China Unicom’s current fixed network into an IMS network on a large scale, then gradually deploy innovative applications such as VoLTE and RCS（Rich Communication Suite）into the network. The rebuilt network will eventually develop to a fully-convergent FMC（Fixed Mobile Convergence） architecture, with the overall goal of improving the comprehensive full-service operation capabilities of China Unicom.
