ZTE Helps China Unicom Successfully Complete First 5G NR Field Test

10 July 2017, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, announced the company supported China Unicom in the operator’s successful first 5G NR (New Radio) field test.   Deploying ZTE’s pre-commercial 5G base station at sub6GHz with Massive MIMO, LDPC (low-density parity check) and other key 5G technologies, China Unicom achieved data rates of up to 2 gigabits per second for single user-equipment. The 5G NR field test in Shenzhen used the 3.5GHz frequency band with a 100MHz bandwidth, and was conducted by ZTE together with the Guangdong branch of China Unicom, in addition to the operator’s Network Construction department and China Unicom Network Technology Research Institute. The successful field test aims to verify the 5G technical performance and product commercial capabilities in the actual network environment, highlighting the deepening partnership on 5G network development between China Unicom and ZTE.   In 2016, China Unicom started a 5G laboratory to verify the feasibility of potential key technologies and accelerate the development of 5G base station architecture and platforms. Following the start of 5G field testing in 2017, China Unicom is intensifying efforts on verification, with a goal of pre-commercial 5G network deployment in 2019 and large-scale deployment in 2020.   As a strategic partner of China Unicom, ZTE has played an industry-leading role...

Nokia protects operators’ investments in current technology by enabling radio portfolio to support low and high 5G frequency bands

Nokia protects operators’ investments in current technology by enabling radio portfolio to support low and high 5G frequency bands Nokia innovation to open up operator monetization of 5G and IoT, improve spectral and energy efficiencies in the network and devices using existing bands Demonstrations to also show how 5G in lower bands will enable fast, cost-efficient wide area coverage Nokia 5G FIRST solution supports frequencies that will enable initial 5G applications   13 June, 2017   London, UK – Nokia innovation and testing has underlined the flexibility, upgradeability and scalability of its AirScale radio portfolio to adapt to the frequency bands that will deliver the promise of 5G in initial applications of the technology. By proving the ability of AirScale to support both low and high bands, operators will be able to provide wide area coverage and indoor coverage from the first day of 5G operations without the need for complicated network reconfigurations.   5G promises a significant change in connectivity, delivering lower latency, enhanced spectral efficiency and greater energy efficiency both for networks and devices. The range of applications enabled by 5G – from multiple access needs in a sports stadium and improving connectivity in dense urban environments, to enabling ‘Industry 4.0’ applications and fixed wireless access  – will require high-band frequencies (millimeter wave and centimeter wave) as well as the evolution of existing low-band frequencies.   At...

5G Will Provide Major Benefits For Mission Critical Communications, But Narrowband Technologies Are Still Essential- Says ETELM At 5G World

5G Will Provide Major Benefits For Mission Critical Communications, But Narrowband Technologies Are Still Essential – Says ETELM At 5G World A unified approach to Mission Critical Communications is essential now and in the future as Mission Critical LTE becomes fully functional, warns ETELM DirectorLondon, England, 14 June 2017 – Now is an exciting time to unify legacy and new technologies for Mission Critical Communications (MCC) to ensure that users retain existing functionality whilst adding new advanced LTE services, says Paul Ward, International Sales Director for ETELM, a leading manufacturer of advanced Mission Critical communications infrastructures. Speaking today at 5G World in London, Ward commented: “LTE high speed mobile broadband will have a major impact on the mission critical communications market, bringing new advanced functionality and applications to users. However, LTE standards for Mission Critical users are still relatively new, and so LTE services should complement, not replace, PMR services.” Ward explained that as LTE evolves it will add new standardised MC functionalities for Video & Data (MCVIDEO and MCDATA) and users will be able to choose when and where to deploy these services. With the ability to integrate other standard technologies, the user will get far greater flexibility as they can retain existing subscriber equipment whilst introducing new smart technologies and data applications. It also allows for lower cost, wider coverage, narrowband services to be deployed where cost-efficiencies...

ZTE introduces carrier-grade DevOps for 5G network slicing

ZTE introduces carrier-grade DevOps for 5G network slicing   15 June 2017, 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 Dr Zhang Senlin, Chief Architect of CTO Team at ZTE, delivered a speech at 5G World 2017, London. Dr Zhang Senlin’s speech was entitled “Network Slicing, a way to optimise the network” and described ZTE’s 5G-oriented network slicing technology. This technology is based on cloud native micro-service architecture from the core network and the DevOps platform, enabling operators to easily and quickly invoke network resources to meet diversified vertical industry needs in the 5G era.   Dr Zhang said that with the advent of the 5G era, communications based on voice and data will no longer be limited to being “human-to-human”. New communications will happen between “human and things”, “things and things” and will penetrate into every vertical industry as 5G IoT applications grow. In addition, the ultra-bandwidth capability provided by 5G also enables the rapid development of VR, AR, ultra HD video, media on demand and other services. Due to single functionality and long deployment times, current network architecture cannot flexibly and efficiently meet the new “on-demand customisation” requirement for the variety of 5G scenarios.   Therefore, it is one of the key technology capabilities of the 5G network to...
