2 April 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, will exhibit its railway application based broadband solutions and multiple GSM-R products and solutions at the UIC European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) World Conference in Istanbul, Turkey.
ZTE will also demonstrate its LTE for Railway solution, a broadband solution based on applications that provide railway management and operation services as well as personal entertainment systems for passengers on high-speed trains.
ZTE is the sole provider of multi-level, fully redundant, and high availability GSM-R solutions based on software defined radio (SDR) and Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) platforms, and supports multi-level redundancy mechanisms such as network-level, link-level and board-level backup. These solutions can guarantee the high availability of a single device to avoid single points of failure and ensure reliable and smooth railway communications systems.
Key technologies, such as distributed base stations, multiple remote radio units (RRUs) configured in one logical cell, and baseband unit (BBU) loop networks, are used for wireless coverage for tunnels and bridges. Compared with repeaters, the RRU-based tunnel coverage solution has many advantages such as high reliability, high signal quality, and ease-of-maintenance features.
“ZTE's GSM-R system, which is based on the latest SDR platform, has high performance, high integration, and low power consumption features, can evolve smoothly into LTE systems, and can provide both GSM-R and LTE services,” said Zhang Jianguo, vice president of ZTE. “By using the advanced wireless communications technologies in the railway field, ZTE's GSM-R solutions can protect customer investments, and provide more high-quality services for railway administrators and passengers.”
So far, ZTE's rail transit solutions have been successfully used in many countries and regions including Russia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shenzhen, and Shanghai.
