ZTE has announced the launch of ezFlow, a national broadband network smart pipe solution, at the 11th Innovation Africa Digital Summit in Addis Ababa.
ezFlow allows operators to operate and manage broadband networks efficiently, increase profits, reduce costs, and improve services for customers. The solution also helps companies achieve the four global broadband policy targets set out by the UN Broadband Commission for Digital Development to ensure universal and affordable broadband access by 2015.
ezFlow can manage network capacity by decreasing or splitting traffic to reduce network pressure. In addition, it can manage network traffic through the different phases of a national broadband development programme using smart pipe technologies and ‘four-dimensional’ traffic strategies which manage traffic scale expansion, track traffic value, reduce traffic costs and mine traffic data.
‘ezFlow is based on our rich experience in broadband network deployment,’ said Wang Yiwen CTO of ZTE Government and Enterprise Business in Middle East and Africa. ‘Its traffic management function improves customer experiences, is good for the environment by reducing power requirements and speeds up broadband network deployment.’
