ZTE makes foray in Indian enterprise solution market

EM NEWS BUREAU ,  Tuesday, October 11, 2011, 11:12 Hrs  [IST]

ZTE India has made a foray in the Indian enterprise solutions market by winning a major enterprise solution contract in the non-telecom sector. The order, of undisclosed value, was planed by Power Grid Corporation of India to provide fixed-network transmission services across the country. As part of the agreement, ZTE will deploy devices to enhanced PGCIL's network coverage and service quality.

The India contract represents ZTE's first step into one of seven key markets in which it aims to be a leading provider of enterprise solutions, a ZTE statement noted. The contract will increase ZTE's share of PGCIL's transmission market to 15 per cent, a significant achievement for the company in India's nontelecom- operator market.

"Given our successes in global markets such as China, Africa and the US, we're pleased to make this foray into the Indian enterprise solutions market and are confident of success there," said Cui Liangjun, Chief Executive Officer, ZTE Telecom India Ltd. The India enterprise solutions market is estimated to be worth $3 billion and is projected to grow to $8 billion by 2014. To address this vast potential, ZTE has formed an enterprise solutions team to work with key clients in the government and private sector. ZTE entered the Indian market in 1999 and has played an important role in ushering leading technology at competitive prices. ZTE feels that the company has helped increase telecom penetration by making telecom services affordable to the ordinary Indian citizen.

Huawei enters India: In an independent development, Huawei Technologies Co, the Chinese maker of telecommunication equipment, recently launched in India its business unit that sells networking products to non-telecom customers. The company expects the newly-launched unit to post about $1 billion of annual revenue in India by 2015, accounting for a quarter of its total revenue from the country then. Enterprise business accounted for 8 per cent of Huawei's $28 billion global revenue in 2010.
