21 June 2016, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced that, in partnership with the China Mobile Research Institute in Shanghai, it has completed its prototype verification and performance testing of key 5G high-frequency technology. The joint test verified multiple technical performance indicators, including indoor transmission performance of the 5G high-frequency prototype in the 15 GHz band, single-user peak rate, transmission rate in line-of-sight/non line-of-sight (LOS/NLOS) scenarios and indoor penetration loss and coverage. The test achieved a single-user peak rate over 3.7 Gbps and service transmission performance for direct wave, reflection and transmission scenarios was deemed good. The test result completely fulfils the theoretical expectation.
High-frequency communication is one of the key 5G technologies. It takes advantage of broadband transmission to multiply system capacity and can be applied in hot-spot large-capacity scenarios. The ZTE 5G high-frequency prototype runs on the 15 GHz carrier and has a bandwidth of 500 MHz. The hardware architecture, which embodies a large-capacity baseband unit (BBU) and intelligent remote radio units (RRU), supports adaptive beam tracing and can implement perfect 3D coverage.
As a global 5G pioneer, ZTE has been committed to become one of the first 5G telecommunications equipment providers in 2020. This test has laid the foundation for achieving this objective.
