ZTE has filed for more than 22,000 terminal-related patents globally, of which more than 4600 were accepted. More than 500 patent applications were related to the flagship AXON series. This is strategically significant for the internationalization of ZTE’s products, especially in Europe and North America.
In the carrier network market, with continued growth in traditional businesses including LTE and fiber optic networks, ZTE focused on developing cutting-edge technologies and sectors such as Pre5G/5G, Big Video, SDN&NFV and IOT.

Smart rail transport is continuing to grow with major projects in Denmark, Greece and India. ZTE continues to gain competitiveness in the smart energy sector with private power line LTE wireless networks commercialized in more than ten cities in China and power line communication products and solutions breaking through in Africa.
For consumer business, network video communication products and TV set-top boxes are winning an increasing percentage of the global market. ZTE continues to sharpen focus on the high-end smartphones market with the flagship AXON series and Blade A1 series continuing to gain traction and reputation. ZTE’s innovative smart projector Spro Plus is gaining recognition in overseas markets. ZTE has recently sponsored five NBA teams in the US, the Sevilla Football Club in Europe, and will continue to partner with more sports teams to complement its progress in the overseas market. 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. Concurrently, ZTE will continue to increase internal managerial efficiencies, especially in talent acquisition to advance core R&D to advance its M-ICT strategy journey.
