10 July 2015, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, will launch its time division duplexing plus (TDD+) solution at MWC Shanghai in China on 15 July, 2015.
In order to accommodate the explosive growth of HD video, online gaming and cloud storage, network users require significantly larger bandwidth, which has resulted in the second wave of global 4G network deployment. With the increasing speeds of commercial networks and numbers of subscribers exceeding industry expectations, the ability to provide access rates of Gbps has become a necessity of today's networks and, as a result, operators are now confronted with ever-increasing levels of traffic. Instead of waiting for the arrival of 5G communications, operators must enhance their network capabilities based on existing system and devices.
ZTE TDD+ provides a five-time performance improvement over traditional TDD, re-defining spectrum efficiency, peak rates and offering improved user experience. It leverages the main components of TDD+ including massive multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO), multi user shared access (MUSA), ultra-dense network (UDN), 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), frequency division duplexing (FDD)-TDD joint operation, machine type communication (MTC), D-CoMP+ and more.
As a leading provider of 4G communications, ZTE has been dedicated to 4G technology innovations and in June 2014 the company was the first in the industry to propose its Pre5G concept and roadmap firstly within the industry, and has since been dedicated to its progress.
ZTE initiated its pre-commercialization of TDD+ in 2014. In November 2014, it partnered with China Mobile to complete pre-commercial testing of the world first Massive MIMO base station. In March 2015, ZTE announced its world first Pre5G solution officially at Mobile
World Congress, Barcelona.ZTE's Pre5G UDN solution has also been fully tested and verified for commercial deployment.
