ZTE: Convergence king will be kung-fu master

16 MAY 2012

Shi Lirong, president of ZTE, said at this year’s Mobile World Congress that multi-network convergence, with a mix of macro, micro, picocell and Wi-Fi infrastructure in different frequency bands to meet specific coverage and capacity requirements, is key to future operator success. “We believe this agnostic access is very important to improve the user experience of data services,” he said. China Mobile was highlighted as a proponent of this approach, with the ZTE executive noting that this operator will have “the biggest four-network convergence in the world.” He added: “The kung-fu master receives the respect of all other rivals. In the mobile world, the one that masters the convergence of solutions for multi-network will be kung-fu master,” he said.
