The STB uses Google’s Android TV system and JVM in order to achieve compatibility and interoperability with other Android applications, which also integrate with ZTE’s Smart Home, such as multi-screen, HD video calls, family album, home IoT network and voice assistant.

ZTE’s B820T2-A14 STB adopts Amlogic system on a chip (SoC) with a 64 bit CPU architecture, 16GB EMMC Flash, 2GB DDR3, which guarantees that the system and applications run smoothly, provides 802.11AC 2*2 Wi-Fi wireless and RJ-45,10/100M wire access and supports Bluetooth 4.1, which enables Bluetooth remote and D-PAD connection.

ZTE said that if traditional digital video broadcast (DVB) service providers (SPs) want keep pace with the growth of 4K and OTT services, 4K DVB-T2 hybrid STBs are a strong choice for them, as they can significantly reduce the cost of the operator's deployment.
