Chinese cellsite vendor with a growing international presence for cellsite equipment, but does not currently appear to be promoting 3G residential or enterprise femtocell business. It does offer small cells within its LTE portfolio, where it uses the terms microcell, picocell and femtocell.

At the end of October 2007, it announced commercial availability of its ZXWR H8901 product and claimed the world's first 3G W-CDMA commercial Home NodeB - although other femtocell vendors may dispute this. The product could simultaneously handle 4 voice calls or up to 7.2 Mbit/s data. This product is no longer listed on the company's website, and does not appear to be in production.

ZTE announced selection of Freescale's QorIQ Qonverge BSC9132 chipset for their femtocell TD-LTE products, including further under development. This chip is capable of medium to large small cells, with 100 or more connected users, indicating ZTE are likely to be targeting higher capacity small cells rather than residential ones.
