ZTE South Africa has revealed that the ZTE, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile Internet, has announced that its data products have participated in the public multi-vendor interoperability test organised by the European Advanced Networking Test Centre (EANTC).

The multi-vendor interoperability test held by EANTC aims to verify the capabilities of the vendors' equipment in supporting the advances in EVPN, SDN, and PCEP features.

The test results are released at the MPLS+SDN + NFV World Congress 2018 on April 10th in Paris, France. The test results show that ZTE data products feature excellent interoperability and are capable of providing the effective and pragmatic SDN solution to address traffic optimisation and traffic scheduling demands in the operators' existing networks and data centres.

ZTE core routers as well as SDN WAN controllers including ZXR10 T8000-18, ZXR10 M6000-18S, ZXR10 M6000-8S PLUS, ZXR10 M6000-5S, ZXR10 M6000-3S, and ZENIC WAN Controller participated in the test, successfully connecting with equipment from multiple vendors in EVPN, BGP-LS, and PCEP.

In terms of SDN, ZTE routers worked as PCC and its SDN WAN controller worked as PCE, interconnecting with equipment from other vendors. They can collect link status, implement new path algorithm, distribute new paths, and realise traffic optimisation especially when the network topology is changing.

"We highly appreciate ZTE's active participation in many of this year's multi-vendor interoperability test areas, specifically in SDN/PCEP/EVPN. The successful results underline ZTE's focus to provide operators with excellent equipment and advanced solutions," said Carsten Rossenhovel, Managing Director at EANTC.

"With decades of experience in data products Research and Development, ZTE has a large number of outstanding talents and great technical strength," said Hu Longbin, VP of Bearer Network Product Line at ZTE. "In the future, we will increase our R&D investment, aiming to lead the transport network innovation, play an active part in the fields of high-end router, SDN/NFV, and provide our customers all around the world with quality services."
