22nd June 2011, Shenzhen – ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a public listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced that Nucleus Connect, the Operating Company (OpCo) of Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN) has partnered ZTE to build the BSS (Business Support System) and OSS (Operational Support System) platforms that will allow Nucleus Connect to support various end-to-end services such as business operations, billing, fault management, network management and maintenance.


ZTE’s highly flexible BSS/OSS solution allows customized configurations which work well with an open access environment. It is expected to provide Nucleus Connect with fast and reliable service provisioning, multi-mode billing and effective network operation and maintenance through flexible process management, overlapped resource modeling, powerful SOA structure and easy-to-scale interfacing models. ZTE’s system will support various new services under the company’s wholesale bandwidth business, and help Nucleus Connect run its business operations efficiently and effectively.


Nucleus Connect CEO David Storrie said, “As the OpCo, Nucleus Connect is responsible for the Active Optical Network (AON) infrastructure, including switches and transmission equipment, and also to resell the bandwidth to the third-layer RSPs (Retail Service Providers). It’s critical for us to work with a trusted partner like ZTE who could help us develop a reliable, future proof, turnkey solution for our support to the RSPs.”


ZTE Asia Pacific President Mr. Zheng Bang said, “ The partnership has once again proven ZTE ’s competitiveness in BSS/OSS planning, construction and implementation. We are confident that we can fulfill the needs of Nucleus Connect and to provide the best broadband communications services for Singaporeans.”
