ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, today announced its joint demonstration with Korea Telecom at Mobile World Congress 2016. The companies will exhibit a Pre5G Massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) base station demonstrating their latest cooperative achievements in the 5G field.
For the Pre5G Massive MIMO base station, ZTE utilises the multi-antenna space division multiple access (SDMA) technology to improve existing 4G wireless frequency spectrum efficiency by four to six times .In a commercial network, the average single-carrier peak rate of Pre5G Massive MIMO exceeds 400 Mbps . ZTE has produced this solution to meet sharply increased capacity expansion requirements and to address the difficulty of finding site locations. Pre5G Massive MIMO uses a beam forming technology to extend coverage from 2D to 3D space to achieve seamless coverage and significantly improve the quality of the network end-to-end.
In 2015, ZTE continued its strategic investment into 5G. As a pioneer in this field, the company will continue to develop its cooperation in high-frequency communications, IoT, multi-user shared access (MUSA), and other fields to jointly promote global standardisation and the development of the 5G ecosystem.
