ZTE Debuts World's First LTE-A CoMP Prototype in Barcelona

(PresseBox) (Barcelona, Spain, ) ZTE Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today showcased its LTE Advanced (LTE-A) prototype in action at "Mobile World Congress 2011" in Barcelona, Spain, which is the first LTE-A CoMP (Coordinated Multipoint Transmission) prototype in the world. During the demonstration, the system achieved downstream peak speeds of over 1Gbps, enabling participants to become the first to experience the blazing speeds offered by fourth generation wireless communication technologies. ZTE also unveiled plans to introduce commercial LTE-A products in 2012, in response to the growing demand for high-speed data communications.

ZTE's LTE-A prototypes incorporate a number of key technologies, such as carrier aggregation, multi-antenna enhancement, relay technology, and multi-point joint transmission. Through the use of CoMP technology in the solution, throughput on the edge is dramatically increased.

Over the past few years, ZTE has accumulated technologies in the LTE-related core areas. For example, in the research of standards, as of 30 November 2010, ZTE had filed 235 ETSI essential patents (EPs), accounting for 7% of the total number of EPs for LTE that had already been declared. This figure highlights that ZTE has entered the "Tier-1 Camp" in terms of EPs for 4G standards. To date, ZTE has contributed approximately 550 proposals to the 3GPP RAN Working Group in the LTE-A field.
