ZTE says that it has released a proprietary Magic Radio Spectrum Solution product that it says achieves deployment of GSM and LTE within the same band.
The company said that it enhances spectrum utilization and improves efficiency by up to 50 percent.
The ZTE Magic Radio Spectrum Solution achieves GSM/LTE dual mode in 900M/1800M bands through utilization of existing GSM macro sites. Because of this, in-use GSM voice services are not affected while high-rate data services are still available.
Further, the ZTE Magic Radio Spectrum Solution contains two sub-solutions: the G/L spectrum overlay solution and G/L collaborated spectrum scheduling solution. The former allows GSM and LTE to occupy some identical frequencies simultaneously.
The latter dynamically schedules the amount spectrum resource used by GSM and LTE. When these two sub-solutions are deployed simultaneously, spectrum efficiency can be improved up to 50 percent.
"We're thrilled to release the new Magic Spectrum Solution," said ZTE Vice President Mr. Zhao Xianming. "We see the solution as a key technology in GSM/LTE co-spectrum scenarios and are confident it will facilitate widespread network deployments and reduce front-end investment."
