ZTE HSPA+ MIMO Solution Ready for Large Scale Commercialization

ZTE has announced that its HSPA+ MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) solution is now ready for large-scale commercial deployment worldwide, following successful interoperability tests in July. The Chinese vendor’s HSPA+ solution has achieved 28.8 Mbps download speed in testing.

ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today announced it has completed the Inter-Operability Test (IOT) of its 3GPP R7-based HSPA+ MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) solution, conducted in conjunction with mainstream terminal chip platform manufacturers, in July 2009.

ZTE’s MIMO solution, realized with its SDR-based next-generation base station, has reached a theoretical speed limit of 28.8Mbps in both cable connection and wireless environment tests. The trials included data download services for UDP (User Datagram Protocol) and FTP (File Transfer Protocol), as well as various IOT item tests. All the test results indicated stable and fast data download performance. The successful IOT testing confirms that ZTE’s MIMO solution is now ready for large-scale commercial deployment worldwide.

“ZTE’s HSPA+ MIMO solution shows our lead performance in the industry with its capacity for large-scale commercialization,” said Zhang Jianguo, general manager for UMTS/LTE products, ZTE Corporation. “We look forward to collaborating with global operators to introduce this state-of-the-art technology to fulfill market needs for next-generation mobile communication.”

As a key player in the industry, ZTE has made numerous breakthroughs in the UMTS industry in recent years. It aims to drive innovative technology development with significant R&D investments in advanced HSPA+ and LTE technologies. To-date, ZTE’s UMTS/HSPA+ commercial solutions have been widely adopted in more than 30 countries and regions around the world.

Note: MIMO technology can improve communication system capacity and spectrum utilization without increasing bandwidth, making it a key technology for next-generation mobile communication systems.
