November 23, 2005 Shenzhen, China -- Chinese telecom equipment and network platforms provider ZTE has won a 100,000 subscriber IPTV contract from the Jiangsu Branch of China Telecom, China's largest fixed-line telecommunications operator.
According to a press release, the IPTV project, following ZTE's IPTV contract win from the Shannxi Branch of the same operator in September this year, will result in China's largest IPTV network.
Jiangsu is one of the most developed provinces in China and is seen as one of the most important strategic telecom markets in that country. ZTE says the IPTV project will be a key part of China Telecom's IPTV trials, and is only the second tender result formally announced by the provider after the Shannxi contract.
ZTE says it won the IPTV project in competition with most of the major international IPTV system providers. The win includes an agreement that ZTE will be the sole provider of IPTV systems and equipment to China Telecom, Jiangsu Branch.
ZTE says its next-generation based IPTV system delivers distinct advantages in terms of network planning and service operation, and can help fixed-line operators realize retained profit by effectively providing abundant customer-made services.
