ZTE Releases Magic Radio Spectrum Solution
GSM/LTE dual-mode technology improves efficiency by up to 50 percent
8 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, has released its proprietary Magic Radio Spectrum Solution.
This innovative technology achieves deployment of GSM and LTE within the same band, which significantly enhances spectrum utilisation and improves efficiency by up to 50 percent.
The ZTE Magic Radio Spectrum Solution achieves GSM/LTE dual mode in the 900M/1800M bands through the utilisation 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.
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 maximises GSM and LTE capacity. The latter dynamically schedules the amount of spectrum resource used by GSM and LTE. When these two sub-solutions are deployed simultaneously, spectrum efficiency can be improved by up to 50 percent.
“We see the Magic Spectrum 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,” said ZTE Vice President Mr. Zhao Xianming.
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.
