ZTE has opened a LTE testing laboratory at its U.S. headquarters in Richardson, Texas. In the lab, ZTE will demonstrate and test its dual mode CDMA LTE platform, which enables carriers to lay the foundation for the delivery of LTE services in the USA.
Using the platform, ZTE can demonstrate an FTP downloading rate up to 52 Mbps at 10 MHz bandwidth and conduct CDMA voice service and LTE HD (High Definition) video demonstrations simultaneously.
"With our new lab here in the U.S. we are demonstrating our heritage and core understanding of North American carriers and their technology requirements," said Mr. Jiang Xiangyang, executive president of ZTE North America. "We look forward to helping U.S. carriers deepen their understanding of ZTE's innovative, flexible and cost-effective dual-mode CDMA/LTE platform."
In the lab, ZTE's team of local researchers will work closely with carriers to test and verify ZTE's CDMA/LTE platform. The lab is equipped to test several features including throughput, latency, coverage, velocity vs. date rate, traffic quality, mobility management and OMM/SON.
This CDMA/LTE dual-mode laboratory is based on the Uni-RAN solution on ZTE unified Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform, and the lab is equipped with several sets of distributed eNodeBs including ZXSDR B8200 (BBU), ZXSDR R8880 (RRU), a set of ZXUN uMAC (MME), a set of ZXUN xGW (SAE-GW), a set of ZXUN USPP (HSS), a set of NetNumen M31 (OSS) and the latest commercial version software.
