ZTE Corporation, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has signed a new distributor agreement which will enable the company to extend its reach in South Africa, with Duxbury Networking, a leading distributor in South Africa.

Duxbury Networking is one of the most competitive and highly respected general IT distributors in South Africa. It has provided information and communication technology (ICT) product distribution for almost 30 years, and has more than 3,000 partners across South Africa. Based on the signed framework agreement ZTE and Duxbury Networking will introduce three mainstream solutions and products to South Africa including: video multimedia solutions, video surveillance solutions and fixed network terminal products.

“The addition of ZTE’s products and solutions will provide a great synergy with our existing portfolio. ZTE’s advanced technology and extensive experience will enable us to provide partners and customers with innovative products and solutions, and will help us to quickly expand our services and maintain leadership in the market,” said Graham Duxbury, CEO of Duxbury Networking.

“There is a great deal of potential in South Africa for ZTE’s video multimedia and video surveillance solutions. The new distribution partnership with Duxbury Networking will enable us to accelerate our market growth plans in South Africa and we look forward to working closely with Duxbury Networking to take advantage of its unparalleled distribution network,” said Li Guo, general manager of the Enterprise Network Business, ZTE South Africa.

ZTE has sold over 100 thousand video terminals in more than 20 countries, including the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Italy. Earlier this year at InfoComm 2013 ZTE launched an HD video conferencing terminal that supports H.265 real-time coding and decoding technology. This terminal uses only half of the bandwidth required by H.264 to play the same program of the same quality. For countries and regions that have limited bandwidth resources, this technology can greatly improve bandwidth usage and reduce the costs for building and operating networks. ZTE is the first provider to demonstrate its H.265 device in the industry.

ZTE has signed agreements with more than 1,600 distributors from 28 countries and regions, including Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Russia, North America, and Brazil.
