With the development of wireless communication technologies, various mobile broadband data services have become the powerful “weapon” with which operators expand market and increase their profits. Operators' requirements of mobile broadband data technologies are more and more clear: the technologies should improve the data bandwidth and user experience continuously, and reduce the service cost effectively.
ZTE HSPA+ solution based on SDR technology supports higher service bandwidth, larger service capacity, and better user experience, which helps the operators launch HSPA+ service efficiently and flexibly. This solution can explore the potential of UMTS system entirely.
Large Capacity Equipment, Supporting High Speed Data Services
ZTE SDR products have large capacity to support HSPA+ high speed data services
For ZTE SDR BP board, the services and data throughput are processed in different modules. The BP board can support high speed data flow and large user capacity at the same time.
The maximal carrier capacity of each ZTE SDR product is 4 carriers, supporting the deployment of DC HSPA/MC HSPA network by smooth expansion.
ZTE RNC supports high data throughput. The large capacity design is very suitable for HSPA+ service.
Full Consideration of the Transmission Requirement of Broadband Data Service
The internal data switching capability of system equipments and network transmission bandwidth need to be improved greatly to support HSPA+ high speed data service.
ZTE UTRAN products are based on IP switching platform. The IP switching platform guarantees efficient data switching without blocking. Furthermore, ZTE UTRAN products support ATM/IP dual protocol stack, with various physical interfaces. By ZTE UTRAN products, the transmission of network can be very flexible, and the upgrade to IP UTRAN can be very smooth.
Smooth Evolution with Forward-looking Design
ZTE UTRAN system supports HSPA+ function only by software upgrade. Moreover, ZTE HSPA+ system can be upgraded smoothly to support LTE.
By ZTE HSPA+ solution, the operator can launch the new services flexibly according to market development. With forward-looking design, ZTE HSPA+ solution not only helps the operator meet the marketing demands quickly, but also extends the equipments lift cycle and save TCO.
Mature Commercial Application
In early 2009, CSL teamed up with ZTE deploying the world’s first HSPA+ commercial network based on SDR technology. This network has the highest data speed and stability, widest coverage in Hong Kong. The HSPA+ network supports up to DL 21.6Mbps per cell.
In August, 2009, ZTE completed the HSPA+ upgrade for ZAPP in Romania. The successful launch of HSPA+ service crowned ZAPP as the first HSPA+ operator in the region of east Europe. ZTE took less than one month to complete the upgrade task by mature HSPA+ commercial system engineering experience and innovative UTRAN system design.
