ZTE acquires over 25% market share in 2014 zte-logo.jpgZTE Corporation has announced that its wireless division witnessed a year-on-year sales growth of 20 per cent in 2014, seeing remarkable achievements in landscape, size, and market share.   In 2014, ZTE continued to grow steadily in the global 4G market, making breakthroughs in major countries and with high-end operators. Compared with 2013, ZTE's 4G eNodeB shipments doubled in 2014, more than 25 per cent of the global market share. The sales of 4G core network products achieved a year-on-year growth of nearly 200 per cent in the European market.   In 2014, ZTE's full range of LTE eNodeBs, including distributed eNodeBs, indoor and outdoor macro eNodeBs and small cells, were widely used, meeting operators' requirements for network deployment in different scenarios. In the same year, ZTE has launched 365 Mbps compact ultra-broadband RRU product, which is the most highly integrated device and provides more flexible multi-radio access technology (RAT) networking solutions. ZTE has put a baseband unit (BBU) product with the smallest size and largest capacity into large-scale commercial use. This product supports 2G/3G/4G RATs, matches the processing capacity of commercial networks, and meets operators' requirements for multi-RAT deployment.   The company’s Qcell solution for intensive indoor coverage, which is applicable to active distributed indoor coverage of complicated buildings and integrates multiple RATs and frequencies, is also highly rated by customers. ZTE launched the Cloud UniCore solution based on network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined network (SDN) technologies for the convergence of IT and CT, which offers industry-leading cloud-based and virtualized wireless networks to meet the future development trends of wireless networks and user demands.   In 2014, ZTE continued its strategic efforts in 5G technologies and became a pioneer in the 5G field. ZTE also first proposed its innovative pre-5G ideas and technology roadmaps, providing 5G-like ultra-high service experience by applying 5G technologies to existing 4G networks. ZTE has made outstanding progress in commercial use of pre-5G, and ZTE's original massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), ultra-dense networks (UDN), and multi-user shared access (MUSA) have entered the commercial validation phase. In November 2014, ZTE completed a pre-commercial field test of the world's first Massive MIMO base station.   ZTE will continue its efforts in the wireless market, and implement its M-ICT strategy in mobile internet, SDN, voice over LTE (VoLTE), traffic management, big data, and other fields, to enhance independent innovation capabilities and launch innovative solutions.
