GSM/LTE dual-mode technology improves efficiency by up to 50%
6 January 2014, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, today released its proprietary Magic Radio Spectrum Solution product.
This innovative technology achieves deployment of GSM and LTE within the same band, which significantly enhances spectrum utilization and improves efficiency by up to 50 per cent.
The ZTE Magic Radio Spectrum Solution achieves GSM/LTE dual mode in 900M/1800M bands through utilization of existing GSM macro sites. Because of this, in-use GSM voice services are not affected while high-rate data services are still available. The solution accelerates commercial LTE deployments and lowers construction, operations and management costs.
Further, the ZTE Magic Radio Spectrum Solution contains two sub-solutions: the G/L spectrum overlay solution and G/L collaborated spectrum scheduling solution. The former allows GSM and LTE to occupy some identical frequencies simultaneously. This maximizes GSM and LTE capacity. The latter dynamically schedules the amount spectrum resource used by GSM and LTE. When these two sub-solutions are deployed simultaneously, spectrum efficiency can be improved up to 50 per cent.
“We’re thrilled to release the new Magic Spectrum Solution,” said ZTE Vice President Mr. Zhao Xianming. “We see the solution as a key technology in GSM/LTE co-spectrum scenarios and are confident it will facilitate widespread network deployments and reduce front-end investment.”
ZTE, a global leader in wireless solutions, is dedicated to innovation in the industry and offers high performance products and solutions. To date, its GSM/UMTS products have achieved successful commercial application in more than 110 countries for 140 operators. Its LTE products have won 65 commercial contracts worldwide.
