ZTE at CeBIT2017 showcases technologies supporting digital transformation


Chinese ICT company ZTE Corporation showcased a slew of innovations touching almost all industry verticals at CeBIT 2017, held in Hanover, Germany.

The company launched its uSmartDC cloud data centre solution at CeBIT 2017 held in Hanover, Germany.

Based on an OpenStack architecture, the uSmartDC cloud data centre solution is optimised to provide enterprise-grade high service availability, performance, elasticity and resource efficiency by integrating isolated resources from the data centre such as servers, storage devices, and network elements.

ZTE then showcased its cloud terminal series, that can be applicable to multiple scenarios.  ZTE cloud terminals showcased at CeBIT 2017 include CT221G2, CT321G2, CT340, CT341 and CT621.

A cloud terminal, also called a thin terminal or thin client, is an access terminal with a small size and low power consumption. It provides input and output interfaces for users to connect to servers which store and process applications and data. Using a built-in processing chip and operating system, a cloud terminal is presented as a PC, thus fitting the use habits of users.

Further, the company unveiled GoldenData VAP solution , a video big-data product that integrates a video and image analysis engine, a data analysis and determination subsystem, and a mass data storage subsystem.

The solution can identify human forms, face and vehicle videos or images from card interfaces/real-time streams of e-police, video/image files and monitoring platforms. Depending on different types of targets, it extracts and analyses the corresponding structural features, and outputs results.

Additionally, the company announced the debut of its TrueMeet ET302 cloud video terminal aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises.

The ET302 is cost-effective and light-weight.    Unlike a software video conferencing system, the ET302 offers high-resolution, high-security and unique features.

ZTE further agreed on smart city projects with  towns of Rüsselsheim am Main, Kelsterbach and Raunheim.  As part of the town network known as ‘Three Wins’, the three municipalities in the German state of Hessen, aim to provide businesses with the smart infrastructure that is required for the digital working environment of the future and are on their way to becoming a European model region for Smart City.

ZTE then announced the official release of two NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) based smart water meters – LXY-15 and LXY-20 – at CeBIT. These new meters meet smart water meter reading systems’ requirements for wireless long-distance transmission of small data.

Last year, ZTE’s revenue reached $14.7 billion in 2016 fuelled by growth in carrier networks and consumer businesses.
