Company Helps Drive the Development of LTE TDD IODT between Industry and Chip Manufacturers
10 December 2009, Shenzhen, China – 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 that it has successfully demonstrated its TD-LTE network technology and achieved a downlink speed of 130Mbps, the highest level in the industry. ZTE is the first company to reach the theoretical limit of TD-LTE throughput in downlink. Utilizing third-part terminal testing tools, ZTE conducted the tests using ZTE system products including EPC, eNodeB, etc in Guangzhou in November.
ZTE has created a simple and smooth transition path for operators to move to LTE through its mature and stable SDR Base Stations. Networks can be upgraded from TD-SCDMA to TD-LTE or to TD-S/TD-LTE dual-mode through a simple software upgrade, saving operators time and money. At the present time, there are more than 200,000 sets of ZTE SDR products running throughout the world, including in China mainland, Hong Kong, India, Chile and other countries. ZTE’s SDR platform Base Station was honored with a prestigious nomination by GSMA Global Mobile Award for the Best Network Technology
In May 2010, ZTE and China Mobile will jointly deploy a TD-LTE network at the Expo News Center for the World Expo Shanghai 2010. The TD-LTE network will provide high-speed wireless network services, enabling staff and reporters around the world to experience the excellent voice, video and data services of LTE technology during the World Expo.
Based on ZTE’s continuous investment and development in the TD-SCDMA field, ZTE has made great strides in TD-LTE field. During a TD-LTE proof of concept (PoC) test organized by China Mobile, Vodafone and the Ministry of Industry and Information (MII), ZTE scored many of the top marks in the industry testing. As the first vendor globally to report testing results for LTE TDD IODT technology to the Long Term Evolution/System Architecture Evolution Trial Initiative (LSTI) in September 2009, ZTE is effectively driving the development of IODT between the TD-LTE industry and chip manufacturers.
ZTE has more than 2,000 engineers and experts dedicated to the innovation and network development of LTE technology. ZTE is a leading pioneer in LTE terminal research and development, working with operators to driving the global adoption of LTE technology.
