ZTE Corporation, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, announced it won contracts in China Telecommunications Corp.’s tender for cloud computing services.

ZTE was awarded contracts to provide cloud desktop system and server virtualisation software to China Telecom, breaking the traditional monopoly of overseas vendors. The winning bids are testament to ZTE’s superior cloud computing technology and the company’s increasing experience in cloud project deployments.

ZTE developed its proprietary iECS server virtualisation software and iRAI cloud desktop system, and owns the underlying intellectual property. iECS combines the ZEN and KVM virtualisation engines with ZTE’s operating system technology and management software to provide comprehensive virtualisation capabilities, while iRAI supports data traffic redirection and virtual applications, providing reliable virtual connectivity. The desktop cloud system supports multiple desktops for a single user, and is compatible with most mainstream terminals.

China Telecom and ZTE have been long-term partners in research and development of cloud computing technologies. ZTE contributed to the standardisation and planning of China Telecom’s cloud computing technologies, including PASS, and the two companies are collaborating to develop cloud computing standards under the direction of ITU-T.

For telecommunication operators, cloud computing represents an important opportunity - computing technologies will help operators build networks that are optimised for serving users with applications. China Telecom has a strong network operation with a big customer base, and is able to combine computing capabilities and information storage to provide ubiquitous cloud services.

ZTE is among the earliest participants in the research and development of cloud computing technologies. In this segment, ZTE has released the CoCLoud system, the iECS virtualisation software product, the iRAI virtual desktop product, the iROS cloud computing management platform, the iBOX cloud terminal device, and the cloud storage product CSS2000. In 2012, ZTE rolled out the USapphire product for data centers, driving the adoption of cloud computing services in the public sector and enterprises. Apart from providing cloud computing products to domestic and international operators, ZTE also plays a leading role in ITU-T’s cloud computing research groups to promote the industry’s development.
