ZTE announced the launch of the industry’s first CDMA/LTE dual-mode distributed NodeB system with four transmitters and four receivers (4T4R).
ZTE’S industry-leading Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology supports two 2x2 or 4x4 MIMO configurations, allowing an increased number of simultaneous data streams, maintenance of coverage over greater distances and faster downloading of data.
The MIMO feature helps carriers significantly enhance cell coverage and capacity by improving spectral efficiency, accelerating network deployment and decreasing network construction costs.
This distributed NodeB system is based on ZTE’s large-scale commercial Soft Defined Radio (SDR) platform to support CDMA2000 1X, EV-DO and LTE. To date, ZTE has become the first vendor to achieve seamless and smooth CDMA/LTE integration around the globe.
As an innovator of both the CDMA and LTE technologies, ZTE has actively joined hands with leading global carriers, having rolled out 15 LTE commercial networks and 65 LTE trials throughout the world. ZTE has been ranked first in a number of CDMA product shipments for five consecutive years. As of the first quarter of 2011, ZTE has shipped over 310,000 CDMA NodeBs, topping the global CDMA market with a 32.5 percent market share.
