Prominently featured at the event were the ZTE 5G MBB & FWA products, whose market share ranks first in the world for the leading technology in the commercialized field, and GIS (Green, Intelligence & Security) achievements, covering the latest 5th GEN of Wi-Fi 7 5G FWA, 5G indoor and outdoor FWA and 5G portable Wi-Fi. By connecting to the internet through wireless networks, the products support fast and efficient data transfer. During the exhibition, ZTE demonstrates the efficiency and convenience of these technologies, which are built on the product concept of power saving, intelligent scenario control, and network security.

New Species of Intelligent Interaction Offers Unprecedented Experiences

As a new and significant addition to ZTE’s smart ecosystem product lineup, nubia Neo Air is not only a wireless AR glass but also an intelligent accessory that is equipped with the AIGC algorithm, the same algorithm used in GPT technology. The GPT model used by the glasses combines the capabilities of multiple AI large models to achieve instant question-and-answer, which means users could interact by voice through voice command with the built-in AI assistant.

Eyewear-Free 3D Tablet Brings Mobile Vision to a New Generation

ZTE has also unveiled another blockbuster innovative smart device, nubia Pad 3D, the world’s first AI-powered eyewear-free 3D tablet. Equipped with ZTE’s unique eyewear-free 3D light field technology, this product can present a high-quality eyewear-free 3D display as well as match up to comfortable viewing angles by AI face-tracking in real-time. In addition, it supports real-time content conversion of 2D content to 3D, including images, videos, and streaming media, leveraging a technology based on the AI neural network deep learning algorithm. This technology can overcome the dilemma of limited 3D content sources, providing a more realistic and vivid 3D visual experience to users.

ZTE is actively cooperating with ecosystem partners in the field of industrial applications to jointly drive the implementation of subdivided industry solutions and apply them to nubia Pad 3D.

The power of generative AI

The power of generative AI, such as ChatGPT, is playing a crucial role in driving digital transformation and intelligent advancements across various industries. As the demand for large-scale and complex deep-learning model computing continues to grow, there is an increasing need for a transformation in computing power. The requirements for computing power are becoming more diverse as data volumes explode and data resources become ubiquitous. This surge in demand has provided a strong impetus for the development of the server and storage market. Consequently, there is a greater emphasis on the performance, reliability, and innovation of servers and storage solutions to meet these evolving requirements.

In terms of servers, ZTE offers a full series of server solutions that support GPUs and liquid cooling, enabling the creation of computing resources for large-scale model processing with exceptionally low power consumption. This results in a reduced Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of data centers to less than 1.13. ZTE has introduced the R6500G5 GPU servers, which can accommodate up to twenty GPUs. Additionally, ZTE plans to unveil a higher-performance R6900G5 GPU training server by the end of this year, further expanding its server portfolio. 

In the field of storage, ZTE offers high-bandwidth multi-converged storage solutions to cater to the diverse data storage needs of AI training. Their offerings include a combination of distributed disk arrays and high-end all-flash disk arrays, capable of meeting requirements for large capacity and high performance. ZTE provides various types of storage options, including files, objects, and blocks. Moreover, the ZTE NEO intelligent cloud card facilitates the offloading of the high-performance storage transmission protocol NVMe, enabling storage performance of up to 3 million IOPS.

Green for all

In the realm of networking, ZTE employs a high-speed “lossless” network architecture to ensure the optimal utilization of AI computing power. By utilizing high-performance RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) networks and lossless switches, ZTE establishes a super-large-scale computing power cluster built around DPUs (Data Processing Units). The introduction of the NEO intelligent cloud card further enhances the server’s capabilities, enabling single-node forwarding performance of up to 800Gbps and achieving microsecond-level latency. This breakthrough in networking eliminates bottlenecks between nodes, maximizing the computing power of GPU clusters.

As an integrated solution provider of intelligent computing infrastructure, ZTE is committed to collaborating closely with operators and industry partners. Together, they will drive continuous upgrades in computing power, foster the development of intelligent infrastructure, and embrace the new era of intelligent computing. By doing so, ZTE aims to inject fresh impetus into the growth of the digital economy.

ZTE expects to foster more communication and discussion opportunities within the industries, facilitate industrial development, and jointly shape a future life characterized by intelligence and convenience.

ZTE helps to connect the world with continuous innovation for a better future. The company provides innovative technologies and integrated solutions, its portfolio spans all series of wireless, wireline, devices, and professional telecommunications services. Serving over a quarter of the global population, ZTE is dedicated to creating a digital and intelligent ecosystem and enabling connectivity and trust everywhere.
