In the past two years, Huawei has continuously broken through technical barriers with its own efforts. This behavior has won Huawei a lot of applause in China. But you need to know that Huawei is not the only Chinese company fighting back against the United States. ZTE, which is as famous as Huawei in the communications industry, is actually actively conducting technical self-research.
As of June this year, the total number of patents in ZTE’s hands has exceeded 80,000, and it has shown impressive strength in the fields of system development and chip design.
On November 12, ZTE officially released a new version of the pivot operating system, which brought a lot of surprises to domestic users. Although Fulcrum OS is not as well known in the market as Huawei’s Hongmeng system, in fact, the value of Fulcrum OS is not lower than that of Hongmeng. Like Hongmeng, Fulcrum also shoulders the heavy responsibility of breaking the monopoly of overseas companies in the Chinese operating system market.
The difference is that the fulcrum operating system has been established for a longer time and is more mature. The new version of the pivot operating system released this time basically realizes full support for domestic CPUs.
Moreover, the system also realizes the four unifications of interaction, interface, component and kernel version. Simply put, it can provide a unified platform for different devices and scenarios. The new fulcrum operating system can not only be applied to computers, but can also be used in the industrial and educational fields. Official information shows that the new fulcrum operating system can even run on 10MB devices.
In the future, with the help of the interconnection function, the system will be able to bring user-friendly interaction and a safe and reliable multi-scenario experience to users.
Judging from the description, the new fulcrum operating system has become one of the strongest operating systems in China. In fact, ZTE’s pivot operating system has been in commercial use for many years and has always had a good reputation in the industry.
The reason why users are surprised by the performance of ZTE’s fulcrum operating system is mainly because they underestimate the strength of ZTE. In the author’s opinion, most Chinese people have a wrong understanding of ZTE. After all, when ZTE faced the US sanctions in 2018, it did not respond with a tough attitude like Huawei, but chose to pay the fine and settle down. This has seriously lowered the Chinese people’s goodwill towards ZTE.
But this incident also changed ZTE and made ZTE realize its own shortcomings. What’s more valuable is that ZTE has “disappeared” for a year after this incident. By the time it returns to the public eye in 2019, ZTE has become a world-renowned 5G giant.
And within a year of disappearing, ZTE has not only upgraded its communication technology, but also frequently overtaken its opponents on the chip track. I have mentioned before that ZTE has more than 80,000 patents, but few people know that more than 40,000 of these patents belong to chips.
ZTE is currently a company that attaches great importance to technology development. In the first half of this year, ZTE’s R&D investment accounted for more than 16.7% of its total revenue, which was higher than Huawei’s.
The good news is that ZTE’s efforts have also paid off. After increasing the emphasis on self-developed technology, ZTE’s revenue also increased. In the first half of the year, ZTE’s revenue was more than 53 billion yuan, both domestically and abroad. Most importantly, due to the increase in the proportion of self-developed technologies, the cost of ZTE products has also begun to decrease, which has allowed ZTE to obtain higher profits, with a year-on-year growth rate of 119%.
At present, ZTE has become a pacesetter in the field of technological breakthroughs in my country. Regardless of hardware or software, ZTE has enough strength to wrestle with overseas companies.
In addition, ZTE’s experience can also inspire other Chinese companies. The current success of ZTE may give many companies the idea of adding to their own research. In the future, there will be more ZTEs springing up like mushrooms after a rain, and “sanctions” will no longer be able to restrict my country’s development.
