46 5g commercial contracts

Since this year, the new infrastructure policy has been issued intensively, among which 5g ranks first among the seven major projects, plays a fundamental and penetrating key role, and is regarded as the top priority of the new infrastructure. With the launch of 5g scale deployment, communication network equipment manufacturers, terminal manufacturers and operators are all speeding up the layout. ZTE, as an upstream equipment supplier, is also expected to usher in further development in the 5g era and open a new global market space.

In terms of market competitiveness, ZTE is currently in the first camp of 5g devices. By the end of the first quarter of 2020, ZTE has won the bid for 5gran, 5gsa core network, 5g bearer and other centralized procurement projects of domestic scale operators. At the same time, relying on 5g end-to-end products and solutions, ZTE has 46 5g commercial contracts in the world up to now, covering China, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and other major 5g markets, and has launched 5g cooperation with more than 70 operators in the world, including three domestic operators, orange, Telefonica, windtre, etc. ZTE is expected to exceed 4G share in China in the future, Xu said. We are confident in the development of 5g in China and have done enough research and development.

In addition, Xu Ziyang also responded to the hot topic of chips recently concerned by the outside world: ZTE has realized the commercialization of 7 nano chips, and 5 nano chips will be commercialized in 2021. He pointed out that in the field of chips, the company focuses on the design and development of communication chips and accelerates the performance improvement. In terms of chip production and manufacturing, the company still relies on global partners for division of production.

Xu Ziyang stressed that the company has invested a lot of resources in the core competitiveness of key chips. In other general-purpose chips, if the performance and competitiveness can meet the requirements, all general-purpose chip partners are welcome to join ZTEs supply chain, so as to eliminate the commercial sustainability risk of the entire supply chain of the company to the maximum extent.

In addition, Xu Ziyang also revealed that ZTE has started to develop the next generation of 6G technology. The company has divided a pre research team from the 5g R & D team to develop 6G. We expect that 6Gs business model will not come out until 2030. In this 10 years, we will quietly start to do all kinds of accumulation.

With regard to the development goal in 2020, Xu Ziyang said that since this year, the group will officially enter the strategic development period, with the goal of achieving quality growth.

Several 5g mobile phones have been released

The terminal strategy is an indispensable part of ZTE. Although we have gone through some detours, we believe that in terms of the end, especially the 5g and 6G end, it will be the future value. Said Xu Ziyang. He believes that smart phones in the terminal 5g market will usher in high-speed development, and the group will strive to grasp the market development opportunities of 5g terminals and multimodal terminals.

Recently, ZTE issued a document to appoint Ni Fei as the general manager of ZTE terminal business department to take full charge of ZTE terminal business. At present, Ni Fei is also president of Nubia.

Since September 2019, ZTE has successively released several 5g mobile phones, such as ZTE axon10pro, ZTE axon10spro, ZTE axon11, ZTE axon11se, etc.
