ZTE Corporation, Chinas largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and wireless solutions provider, will showcase its advanced 3G wireless technologies and solutions, including its industry-leading WCDMA system demonstrating a wide range of 3G services and its latest 3G handsets at the upcoming 3GSM World Congress 2006 in Barcelona, Spain.
Visitors to ZTEs booth (B04, Hall 8) and the demo truck (AV 02) will be able to experience 3G services such as Video Telephony, Mobile Video Conference, VoD over HSDPA and innovative converged services such as "Shared Whiteboard", "Instant Messaging" and "ONLY" (One Number Links You) provided by the companys in-house developed IMS Core Network.
The IMS system and services, which are being shown for the first time anywhere in the world, have been developed using ZTEs universal IP hardware platform and support a smooth migration from R4 MGW to R5 IM-MGW/MRFP for example. ZTEs IMS suite provides a shared platform for its WCDMA, CDMA 2000, TD-SCDMA and NGN products. ZTEs universal IP hardware has been commercially deployed and proved in telecom networks in more than 60 countries.
"The idea of the smooth evolution from UMTS to HSDPA is at the heart of the design of our platform. This means that operators only need to upgrade the software to support HSDPA functions, creating a future-proof and cost-effective solution," said Mr. Cao Qiang, VP of ZTE Mobility.
With over 10% of annual revenue committed to R&D, ZTE is a leader in the wireless industry with a global wireless customer base of over 100 million subscriber lines. ZTEs HSDPA equipment has achieved a downlink peak rate of 10.8 Mbps per user per sector. In the recently-concluded HSDPA testing organized by Chinas MII (Ministry of Information Industry), ZTE passed 80 test cases and was ranked top out of all participating vendors. To date, ZTE has deployed WCDMA networks in over 10 countries and regions around the world, all of which can be seamlessly upgraded to HSDPA networks and can operate seamlessly with 2G legacy networks, thus protecting the operators existing investment to the utmost.
