ZTE Corporation has been named as a leader for its end-to-end long term evolution (LTE) solution in the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for LTE Network Infrastructure 2016.

This Magic Quadrant evaluates the worldwide market for end-to-end LTE network infrastructure and includes 10 vendors that provide both radio access and core network elements for LTE.

According to the report, ZTE continues to demonstrate, test and interoperate advanced capabilities with communication service providers (CSPs) — for example, massive multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) and cloud radio — in order to gain mind share and market share. It has become increasingly visible in Asia (for example, in SoftBank's LTE network in Japan and China Mobile's time division duplexing/frequency-division duplexing (TDD/FDD)-LTE network in Hong Kong), Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. It can also use its fixed-line products and relationships in these markets to help it access CSPs wanting LTE upgrades and to deepen its cooperation with them.

Feedback from CSPs includes praise for ZTE's flexibility and responsiveness specifically during the initial rollout phase. Its recently improved marketing communications could also help it gain visibility.

Gartner says, ZTE is a leading supplier in the Chinese 3G/4G market and a key player in the global mobile infrastructure market. This provides it with a steady revenue stream and significant network-building experience.

ZTE recently unveiled its pre-5G initiatives which commercialize a series of 5G technology solutions for implementation on top of the 4G network.

ZTE places strong emphasis on China and other Asia Pacific markets, and it has made some progress toward becoming a bigger international player, with some good user-case reference, such as Telenor Group. The experience gained from LTE projects in China has helped ZTE break though into some key new markets such as South East Asia, India and Europe.

NOTE: Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving you a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market's competitors. A Magic Quadrant provides a graphical competitive positioning of four types of technology providers, which is Leaders, Visionaries, Niche Players and Challengers.
