Chinese IT and telecom equipment vendor ZTE has signed a new distributor agreement with Duxbury Networking to extend its reach in South Africa.
ZTE on Monday said it will introduce three mainstream solutions and products to South Africa including: video multimedia solutions, video surveillance solutions and fixed network terminal products.
“There is a great deal of potential in South Africa for ZTE’s video multimedia and video surveillance solutions. The new distribution partnership with Duxbury Networking will enable us to accelerate our market growth plans in South Africa and we look forward to working closely with Duxbury Networking to take advantage of its unparalleled distribution network,” said Li Guo, general manager of the Enterprise Network Business, ZTE South Africa.
ZTE has sold over 100 thousand video terminals in more than 20 countries, including the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Italy.
At InfoComm 2013 ZTE launched an HD video conferencing terminal that supports H.265 real-time coding and decoding technology. This terminal uses only half of the bandwidth required by H.264 to play the same program of the same quality.
For countries and regions that have limited bandwidth resources, this technology can improve bandwidth usage and reduce the costs for building and operating networks. ZTE is the first provider to demonstrate its H.265 device in the industry.
ZTE has signed agreements with more than 1,600 distributors from 28 countries and regions, including Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Russia, North America, and Brazil.
