Dando uno sguardo al 2014, opportunità e sfide abbonderanno nel mercato delle telecomunicazioni quali l’applicazione delle tecnologie 4G, l’unione dei settori ICT e la continua informatizzazione. Per quanto riguarda le reti carrier, l’implementazione su larga scala di reti 4G a livello mondiale, in particolare in Cina, porterà nuovi sviluppi nel settore delle telecomunicazioni, anche se le tecnologie 3G/4G/WLAN continueranno a coesistere. I progetti broadband dei governi nazionali, la domanda degli utenti e gli aggiornamenti tecnologici porteranno alla realizzazione di reti a banda larga globali, e continuerà anche la costruzione di reti di trasmissione che supportano broadband wireless e wireline.

Questo mese, ZTE ha confermato la seconda posizione nella più recente classifica del World Intellectual Property Organization per numero di brevetti richiesti, rafforzandone la reputazione come uno degli innovatori tecnologici del mondo. ZTE si è classificata prima sia nel 2011, sia nel 2012 secondo WIPO.

L’azienda ha richiesto oltre 50.000 brevetti, con oltre 16.000 accordati, e vanta una posizione di leadership con 800 brevetti essenziali ETSI sulla standardizzazione LTE 4G. ZTE sta investendo in maniera significativa nello sviluppo di tecnologie 5G, sfruttando la sua posizione di forza in ambito 4G.

Per quanto riguarda i terminali smart, i prodotti di prossima generazione disporranno di maggiore intelligenza per offrire ai clienti una più elevata flessibilità. I dispositivi indossabili rappresentano una nuova direzione di sviluppo nel momento in cui la soddisfazione delle esigenze dei clienti diviene un fattore determinante. Nei settori pubblico e aziendale, aree di sicuro interesse quali l’informatizzazione, Internet of Things, cloud computing, Smart City e l’informatizzazione del mercato rappresenteranno interessanti opportunità per il gruppo.

Nel 2014, ZTE continuerà a incanalare le risorse per accelerare lo sviluppo del business in aree strategiche e di maggiore opportunità per l’azienda, e continuerà ad associare l’innovazione tecnologica con un’esecuzione strategica e di business mentre soddisfa le esigenze dei clienti e persegue gli obiettivi degli azionisti.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
