Shenzhen, China -- ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has officially launched the industry's smallest WiMAX 16e RRU (Remote Radio Unit) product, the R9110 that helps reduce the number of base stations by 50%, hence enabling telecom operators to maximize their return on investment (ROI). The company will be exhibiting the new device at the Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2009 from February 16-19 to demonstrate its continuous R&D efforts and expertise in WiMAX field.
ZTE RRU R9110 is based on BF4*8 Multi-Antenna technology, which effectively improves signal quality from a single base station, allowing extensive network coverage and enhanced network performance. Compared with traditional devices using MIMO technology, RRU R9110 further minimizes the number of base stations from 35%-50%, helping telecom operators reduce network construction and maintenance costs. In addition, the latest RRU device supports dual carrier discontinuous spectrum, enabling a maximum speed of 100MHz expansion between uplink and downlink. By leveraging on this advantage, telecom carriers using traditional FDD spectrum can save cost and investment on RRU, antenna and wireless tower required in network expansion by up to 50%.
"We are elated to be part of this prestigious telecom industry event in Barcelona to demonstrate the extraordinary features of our latest RRU product. This is highly significant for us in showing the result of our remarkable R&D efforts and state-of-the art technology in the WiMAX arena," said Mr. Zhao Songpu, ZTE's General Manager of WiMAX products. "With the introduction of our latest RRU product to the market, we are offering cost-effective solution for telecom carriers to make network construction more flexible, hence helping them to achieve low TCO and enhance their ROI."
ZTE is one of the few vendors in the world that pioneered research and development on WiMAX. It is also the only Chinese company with a representative in the 15-man Board of Directors in the WiMAX Forum(TM), and with about a dozen of WiMAX R&D institutions located in different regions globally. As of November 2008, ZTE has already deployed more than 30 WiMAX 16e networks across different regions and countries, including Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the Americas region.
ZTE will be exhibiting at booth 8B127 in Hall 8 and hospitality suite CY13+14 during the event.
