ZTE launched a new full-outdoor microwave transmission system based on patented technology at the 2013 Mobile World Congress. The company says its system offers substantial performance enhancements to meet the needs of today’s ultra-fast LTE networks.
Based on a new design architecture, the ZXMW NR8950 microwave system can be deployed for large-capacity transmission, helping operators roll out networks with dense coverage, and reduced installation footprint. The design advantages of ZXMW NR8950 enable operators to overcome the challenges of building high-density small-cell networks for large-capacity data transmission, while site installation space is limited.
With the advent of LTE networks, there is increased demand from operators for large-capacity data transmission on Ethernet networks. The industry-leading 1024QAM modulation mode on the ZXMW NR8950 system uses high modulation and multi-level data compression technology to increase throughput substantially, with a theoretical speed of 1.6 Gigabits per second.
The ZXMW NR8950 system is equipped with a patented storage solution, pioneered by ZTE, which is remotely configurable. A built-in MicroSD card can store data on configuration set-up, license, and log information, enabling customers to quickly transfer settings from existing equipment to new equipment, greatly cutting operation and maintenance costs, and reducing the time of network interruption.
In addition, the ZXMW NR8950 can interchange with the indoor units of the ZXMW NR8250 for hosting operation mode, reducing the difficulty of commissioning and maintenance, and can be simply deployed by operators.
