ZTE will also be launching the next-generation AXON phone in the near future.
Looking towards the next quarterly announcement, ‘multiple connections and ultra-broadband’ will become the new trademarks of the M-ICT era. Network operators will benefit from ZTE’s increased value on smart networks to support operators’ transformation from telecommunications operators to information carriers. For Enterprise business, ZTE will continue the focus on key industries and markets, streamlining standard operations and speed-up replication of successful examples to solidify its position in the industry. For Terminal business, ZTE will continue to fortify its competitiveness by increasing brand awareness.
