ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, announced it has won large-scale orders for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core network solutions from China Mobile to enable the rollout of voice over long term evolution (VoLTE) services.

ZTE was awarded contracts in China Mobile’s Phase 2 CM-IMS centralised tender in major provinces including Guangdong, Jiangsu, Hubei, Hunan, Shandong, Sichuan and Fujian. ZTE received one of the highest allocations among participating vendors, and will provide China Mobile with a full-range of VoLTE core network solutions covering equipment and systems integration.

China Mobile’s CM-IMS Phase 2 project comprises newly-commissioned networks and upgrades of existing networks. Of the 12 tranches in the new network portion of the CM-IMS Phase 2 project, covering 28 provinces, ZTE gained 70 percent market share in seven tranches, and 100 percent allocation in three further tranches.

The CM-IMS network provides users with an integrated full-service end-to-end (E2E) solution based on the international IMS standard. ZTE’s market-leading IMS solutions cover the core network, service platform, access system, terminals, and other supporting systems, providing comprehensive support to China Mobile’s unified communication products.

An increasing number of 4G operators globally are deploying VoLTE services. As operator of the world’s biggest 4G LTE network, China Mobile views VoLTE as a key technology. As early as June 2013, China Mobile released its VoLTE White Paper, and decided to use VoLTE as its LTE voice solution.

ZTE’s IMS solutions are deployed by operators around the world, and the company has actively participated in interconnection tests with major global operators. ZTE has had long-term collaboration with China Mobile on VoLTE regarding standard internationalisation, international MultiService Forum (MSF) tests, specification formulation, and internet of things (IoT) tests.
