ZTE Tallies Sterling Growth in Global WiMAX Market

SHENZHEN, /PRNewswire-Asia-AsiaNet/ --

In-Stat Report Ranks ZTE Among the 2008 Top WiMAX Equipment Vendors

    ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network

solutions, recorded another sterling growth performance in the area of WiMAX commercial network

market in 2008, according to a report entitled 'Global WiMAX Market, Takes off in 2009' released by

In-Stat, a leading US research firm. The report reveals that out of the 94 new WiMAX 16e

commercial networks deployed last year, ZTE had 15 of them or 16% of all the networks established

worldwide, lining up the company among the top two WiMAX equipment vendors in 2008.  

    ZTE performed well in high-end markets including the United States and Western Europe. It has

deployed 15 new commercial WiMAX networks in markets such as Asia, Africa, North and South

America and Europe. According to the report, with ZTE's industry proven WiMAX terminal solutions

and a significant number of commercial WiMAX networks the company is planning to install in the

years to come, there is a high probability that the company can assume the number one spot as

WiMAX equipment vendor worldwide.  

    The increasing demand for new mobile applications resulted in the rapid growth of WiMAX

worldwide last year, the report added, with countries such as the United States, Japan and India

pioneering WiMAX deployment. WiMAX has been growing tremendously and widely adopted globally

due to its capability to provide mobile operators with high bandwidth capacity, lower operational cost,

and install multiple terminals in an open environment. The technology, In-Stat predicts, will grow

even more rapidly in the next five years, with subscribers reaching over 85 million by 2013. 

    ZTE is one of the few vendors in the world that pioneered research and development on WiMAX.

As of November 2008, ZTE has already deployed more than 30 WiMAX 16e networks across

different regions and countries, including Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the Americas
