ZTE Corporation has conducted its 5G Summit and User Congress 2021 via live stream.
The summit was attended by many of the vendor’s industry partners, including the GSMA, Omdia, CCS Insight, China Mobile, Hutchison Drei Austria and China Telecom. With the theme “Digital Road to Ecosystem”, industry thought leaders brought to the table in-depth discussions entailing sizzling topics of 2021, focusing on the 5G ecosystem oriented to the future.
In the opening speech, Mr. Xu Ziyang CEO of ZTE Corporation said: “ZTE has been deeply involved in ICT for 36 years and continues to innovate in end-to-end technology. Solutions such as radio access, wired access, core networks, all-optical bearer networks, IP data networks, computing infrastructure, energy, cloud service components, digital applications and terminals, all help operators lay the foundations for the digital transformation of societies and industries.”
Digital technologies have the potential to boost more inclusive and sustainable growth by spurring innovation, generating efficiencies and improving services. This was further iterated by GSMA CEO John Hoffman, who said: “5G, together with AI, IoT and Big Data bring to us the era of intelligent connectivity, turning on digitization across all industries. Over the next decade, a wave of mobile-led technology unicorns will be born from 5G and will drive our future economies.”
The success of digital transformation depends on one essential requirement: breaking down silos. Speaking at the congress, CCS Insight Executive Chairman Shaun Collins said that: “5G is so much more than the next “G” – it is a foundational technology. To succeed, we should recognize that 5G has become a team game – carriers, hyperscalers, equipment providers, systems integrators, software developers will be key to success as 5G matures.”
ZTE experts also shared their insights on ground breaking technologies such as Radio Composer, which highlights a revolutionary way to manage and optimize radio resources by changing the traditional "best effort" to "always optimal”, and also leverages machine learning of user behaviour and network traffic patterns to choose the optimal combination of available spectrum resources. 5G intelligent BBU with intrinsic AI offers the industry's highest capacity, very compact BBU with highly integrated processing capabilities. Also shown was Slicestore and 5G SA best practice for 5G commercialization enabling the new 5G business models of 2B & 2C.
ZTE has been staying true to its original aspirations, and is striving to connect individuals, families, enterprises, and society. ZTE is determined to fulfil its vision and mission: to connect the world with continuous innovation for a better future. The 5G Summit and User Congress is a perfect example illustrating the strategic success the industry has had so far in the entire 5G ecosystem.
