5G pre-commercial base stations launched by ZTE at #MWC17

ZTE has announced that it is releasing a full range of 5G mmWave and Sub6GHz pre-commercial base stations. This release allows operators to deploy these products ahead of time and seize opportunities in the 5G era so that consumers can enjoy the 5G ultimate rate ahead of time.

The range uses massive multiple input, multiple output (MIMO), Beam Tracking, beamforming and other key 5G technologies, meeting the 5G pre-commercial deployment requirements in various scenarios. 5G Sub6GHz base stations are the smallest and lightest base stations with the industry's highest level of integration, and their data throughput can reach 10 Gbps. ZTE, and its strategic partner China Mobile, also carried out a joint demonstration of the 5G mmWave pre-commercial base station.

As one of the key 5G technologies, Massive MIMO plays a vital role in improving frequency efficiency and air interface bandwidth. So far, ZTE's Pre5G Massive MIMO has been widely deployed with China Mobile, Softbank (in Japan) and in other global high-end markets.

Widely recognised by operators and the industry, Massive MIMO is already used in 5G scenarios in existing mobile networks. It can solve technology and application problems caused during the commercial operation process, and will greatly accelerate the maturity of core 5G technologies and effectively shorten the period of product verification and large-scale commercial use. ZTE has applied for hundreds of technical patents, and contributed to many valuable proposals from standards organisations in regards to this technology process based on massive data collected from actual scenarios.
