ZTE and China Telecom’s Guangdong Branch Successfully Launch China’s First 10G-to-the-Enterprise Application with 50G PON Technology

ZTE Corporation and China Telecom’s Guangdong branch have achieved a major milestone by launching China’s first 10G-to-the-enterprise application with 50G PON (Passive Optical Network) technology. The successful deployment of this application took place at the Nanshan Science and Technology Park in Shenzhen.

The collaboration between ZTE and China Telecom’s Guangdong branch aimed to establish a model 10G-to-the-enterprise project and industrial park featuring 50G PON infrastructure. This initiative is aligned with Shenzhen’s vision of becoming a pioneering global digital city.

In 2022, Shenzhen introduced the “Action Plan for Advancing the Development of New Information Infrastructure (2022-2025),” which focuses on supporting the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises and implementing flagship all-access initiatives to realize the “10G-to-the-enterprise” vision.

China Telecom’s Guangdong branch, as a leading broadband operator in China, has been partnering closely with ZTE to explore new 50G PON access modes for government and enterprise campuses. In this specific project, both parties successfully deployed the 10G-to-the-enterprise application at the Nanshan Science and Technology Park. This achievement validates the exceptional bandwidth and low-latency capabilities of the 50G PON technology, enabling the establishment of high-speed and low-latency “deterministic networks” within the enterprise campus.

Zhou Guoqiang, Deputy General Manager of the Cloud Network Development Department at China Telecom’s Guangdong branch, emphasized their commitment to empowering the digital transformation and upgrade of the industry. He stated that the collaboration with ZTE in launching China’s first 10G-to-the-enterprise application provides large-bandwidth, low-latency, and high-reliability deterministic networks to enterprises, contributing to improved production and operation efficiency. Furthermore, this initiative supports Shenzhen’s goal of becoming a “10G City” and an ultra-high-speed pioneering city.

Looking ahead, China Telecom’s Guangdong branch and ZTE plan to intensify their collaboration in the 50G PON field to address latency and jitter requirements in various scenarios, such as development zones, industrial parks, and factories. This partnership aims to inject fresh vitality into the government and enterprise sectors, ushering in a new era of digital transformation.
