ZTE’s GPON products have gained momentum and secured top rankings, according to telecom industry analyst Ovum.
Based on Ovum’s “4Q10 Market Share - FTTx, DSL, and CMTS ports,” among the top eight vendors, ZTE was ranked number one in growth between 2008-10 for worldwide GPON revenues, including GPON OLTs and ONT/ONUs. ZTE’s GPON revenues increased by 1787% between 2008 and 2010, and by 352% between 2009 and 2010.
ZTE achieved the industry’s biggest gain in market share in EMEA for GPON ONT/ONUs between the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2010. These top rankings were obtained following successful GPON contract wins with operators in Asia and Europe.
In Asia, ZTE successfully completed the world's first large-scale commercial GPON-based mobile backhaul network for TELKOM Indonesia. In Eastern Europe, several operators deployed ZTE’s GPON solution. These include TEO in Lithuania, RDS & RCS in Romania and some Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) operators. In Western Europe, a strategic partnership agreement with Tiscali was signed to foster the development of ultra-wide broadband by FTTH technology in Italy.
