ZTE Corp. (H: 0763.HK / A: 000063.SZ) says it has won another major contract with China Telecom.

Already in the frame to supply the largest share of the broadband equipment to the major Chinese vendor (see “ZTE to supply 40% of China Telecom's 2012 broadband equipment”), ZTE has now won the largest share of the IP procurement contract with China Telecom.

China Telecom is running a large-scale IP centralized purchase that aims to provide fiber-optic telecommunications capabilities to over 100 million customers. The IP procurement involves the use of several technologies, including broadband remote access servers, service routers, multi-service edge, aggregation switches, and high-end routing switches.

As part of the contract, ZTE will deliver its M6000 high-end router to China Telecom for use in the infrastructure project. ZTE says its M6000 product has already been put into use in more than 110 cities in 21 provinces across China to date.

ZTE notes that its T8000/M6000 products have been put into commercial use by China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, and by operators in several countries in across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
