ZTE Opens 5G R&D Lab in Tokyo

ZTE has opened a new Research and Development Center in Tokyo to focus on the development of 5G and other next-generation network technologies. This brings the number of ZTE R&D centers to 20 worldwide.

The opening ceremony for the new R&D center was officiated by senior executives including Shi Lirong, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZTE, Zhang Renjun, Senior Vice President of ZTE, and Zhang Shumin, Head of ZTE Mobile Devices in Asia Pacific.

“ZTE’s world-class research on 5G technology will be further strengthened by the new R&D center in Japan,” Mr. Shi said. “Japan is home to many of ZTE’s most important customers, and we will continue to increase our investment in this key market. The new R&D center will enable ZTE to recruit top local talents to join in our research on next-generation technologies.”

  • In July, ZTE announced it signed a memorandum of understanding with SoftBank to collaborate on research and development on pre-5G mobile communications networks technology.
