ZTE Corporation and the Yangzhou branch of China Telecom have completed the industry’s first NodeEngine pilot on a commercial network in Yangzhou.
Based on its existing network 5G & NodeEngine traffic offloading service, ZTE has assisted China Telecom in rapidly deploying smart industrial park services.
In this project, ZTE and the Yangzhou branch of China Telecom transmit video content over the operator’s wireless network, leveraging 5G large-bandwidth and guaranteed QoS network features. It is the first time that ZTE has co-deployed the NodeEngine traffic offloading service by virtue of the existing websites.
Video streams can be forwarded to the park’s closest monitoring platform to satisfy the requirements of low-latency video backhaul in the park. Deploying just one computing board in the existing network base station enables the local traffic offloading service to be fulfilled, effectively reducing the project deployment cost and shortening the deployment period.
In addition, with the help of the local traffic offloading and eBridge service for the inter-connection of park facilities, video files can be rapidly forwarded to the industrial park center platform. Meanwhile, the platform can access the cameras and other terminals to obtain the required on-site information in a timely fashion.
“For this project, ZTE stands out with its capability of commercial delivery of NodeEngine solution,” said Tang Xue, Vice General Manager of RAN Product Line at ZTE. “ZTE’s NodeEngine solution, featuring zero engineering delay, board-level deployment cost, plug-and-play support-ability and quick service commissioning, cuts the deployment cost of vertical industry applications, facilitates the development of vertical services, and accelerates digital transformation in the park.”
