ZTE Corporation has helped Ningxia Cable TV Network successfully upgrade its IP transport network, by upgrading the existing ZTE’s core router ZXR10 T8000 single device to cluster.
This upgrade will enable Ningxia Cable TV Network to optimize network capabilities and improve network performance to better support the traditional services such as broadband and TV, as well as cloud access services such as convergence media while expediting network cloudification and building a cloud computing-based service platform to implement centralized management of service resources, said a press release from the international provider of telecommunications, enterprise, and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet.
According to the release, in 2020, the National Radio and Television Administration began to integrate cable TV networks all over the country with radio & TV 5G network construction. Ningxia Cable TV Network has set a target of constructing a reliable and IP cloudified MAN architecture.
ZTE provides cluster core routers at the core layers of the operator’s networks. The service control layer adopts the C/U-separated vBRAS architecture, and the convergence layer is configured with data center switches and SDN controllers. So far, ZTE’s cluster core routers have been put into use, it said.
With the speed-up of 5G network constructions in 2021, the deployments of ZTE's cluster core routers will lay a solid foundation to facilitate the operators to build the high-quality green 5G transport networks, deliver differentiated operation services and create a high-quality business development pattern.
