A denial of export order which banned Chinese telecommunications equipment and systems supplier ZTE from doing business with American firms has been lifted.
The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is allowing ZTE to conduct business on a limited scale in a relaxation of the denial order placed on the company earlier this year.
LightCounting has released its June 2018 Quarterly Market Update Report. Amongst the key findings, the specialist market research company cites ZTE as ‘an early casualty of the unfolding trade war’ and warns that some sales will be impacted in Q2 of 2018.
Chinese telecommunications equipment and systems supplier ZTE has ceased its major operating activities following a denial of export privileges against the company from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).
U.S. secretary of commerce Wilbur L. Ross, Jr. has announced a denial of export privileges against ZTE from the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).
Chinese telecom equipment vendor ZTE has launched what it claims is the industry’s first quantum encryption solution for Optical Transport Network (OTN) transport equipment.
ZTE’s new system exploits the quantum mechanical properties of photons to create an ‘unbreakable’ communications channel. The secure transmission capability and anti-decoding capability are far higher than any traditional information encryption methods. “This will elevate the telecommunication information security sector,” ZTE said in a statement.
ZTE has released the ZXMP M721 CX66, a compact packet Optical Transport Network (OTN) platform at the WDM & Next-Generation Optical Networking Forum held in Nice, France.
With the global large-scale commercial deployment of LTE and the rapid development of over-the-top (OTT) services, the demand for flatter networks is forcing OTN-bearer networks to evolve into unified bearing networks. With this in mind, ZTE has developed its compact packet OTN platform product, the ZXMP M721 CX66, which integrates ODUk, packet, and virtual circuit (VC) crossing.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
