SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE” - H share stock code: 00763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced an optical transmission agreement with Optimus, a Portuguese communication services provider. ZTE will build a long-haul optical transmission network for Optimus to connect Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, with Porto, the country’s second largest city.

The new Optimus network will be based on ZTE’s ZXWM M920 solution, a next generation intelligent optical networking product that combines high-capacity and long-haul transmission capabilities. This network will be replacing current infrastructure as Optimus’ legacy equipment can no longer meet the requirements of an ever-increasing customer base and growth in data traffic.

“As with many other European carriers, Optimus is faced with the challenge of meeting the requirements of a growing customer base and the exponential demand for data, leading it to upgrade its infrastructure with a cutting-edge solution. With its high-capacity and superior transmission performance, ZTE’s 40G solution is well-placed to help Optimus build a next-generation network covering key Portuguese cities,” said Mr. Chen Yufei, VP of bearer network at ZTE.
