ZTE Corp., an ICT solutions provider, emphasized its continued commitment to sustainability by creating products that adhere to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies.
ZTE Corp. has been advocating green development concepts and exploring a series of environmental protection measures, which cover product architecture, device packaging materials, key components, and O&M.
“Building sustainable green FTTH (fiber to the home) networks is a key direction for network development that benefits the whole society,” Hans Neff, senior director of the ZTE CTO Group, said in his presentation at the FTTH Conference 2023 held in Madrid, Spain. “Green requirements should be integrated into the full life-cycle of FTTH networks.”

ZTE’s products follow the green design concept of smooth evolution, high integration, miniaturization, and easy deployment in its product architecture. ZTE’s Any-PON multi-mode solution can meet the requirements of diverse scenarios through flexible configuration, and effectively reduce the number and types of cards. ZTE’s compact OLTs also effectively save space and energy in equipment rooms.
ZTE’s fixed network CPEs use 100% recyclable plastic enclosures, and packaging boxes use 100% green plant-based ink that is non-toxic and harmless for device packaging materials. ZTE likewise enhances the functions and lowers the power consumption of its key components. ZTE adopts intelligent management methods for O&M. Smart fiber detection provides visualization and manageability, preventive maintenance, and accurate fault location functions, which help reduce the consumption of O&M resources.
“Energy consumption is a major part of the operating costs for network operators,” ZTE said in a statement. “To achieve sustainable development and enhance their competitiveness, operators need to build energy-efficient networks. ZTE is committed to green development and will continue to cooperate with industry partners to create green solutions for enterprise operations, supply chains, digital infrastructure, and industry empowerment. ZTE will continue to build sustainable green FTTH networks and help industries to adopt the green development path quickly.”
