7/10/2015, recently, in Tokyo, Japan, ZTE and Softbank Group officially signed a Memorandum of Understanding Pre5G joint research and development, the two sides jointly develop future-oriented Pre5G Massive MIMO key technologies for the purpose of cooperation related technologies verification experiment, technology assessment and research and development.
In the communication field, Japan has been at the forefront of the world, and to become the industry leader of commercial 5G, 5G technology to pave the way for a global standard. In the new technology pre-research point of view, ZTE in multi-antenna (Massive MIMO), multiple connections (MUSA, UDN), a number of technical fields and high frequency spectrum utilization Softbank launched close exchanges and cooperation.
The new base station form Massive MIMO, in theory, more than 100 antennas, without changing the existing terminals and empty, compared to traditional 8-antenna can achieve higher space division multiplexing gain greatly enhance the spectrum utilization; LTE compared to traditional systems by higher order MUMIMO, it can support up to eight users to transfer data. Meanwhile, Massive MIMO LTE can provide compared to traditional higher, farther, deeper coverage, significantly reducing base station power consumption, to achieve the ultimate goal of green communications. These advantages will greatly improve the performance of large-scale AXGP Softbank commercial networks. In practical prototype demonstration, Pre5G Massive MIMO base station in a multi-user, the results demonstrate 3D coverage far exceeded expectations.
Softbank grazing Kai Park City, senior vice president, said: “The promotion of research and development of technology, the Internet can be seen as the future trend of the building for future wireless mobile network Softbank now being discussed, and joint research Pre5G ZTE, we feel. very interesting very much looking forward. “
Zhangren Jun, senior vice president of ZTE, said: “As the world’s leading integrated communications solutions provider, ZTE will 5G as a core strategy, is a pioneer in the field of .5G 5G is an open ecosystem, ZTE is willing to work closely with the industry in many ways together for a better experience 5G and work. “
So far, ZTE Pre5G Massive MIMO products have a number of industry praise: March, GTI at the awards ceremony held in Barcelona, ？？ZTE Pre5G Massive MIMO the 2014 annual GTI “Innovative Solutions & Applications Award”; in May, the International Telecommunication authority of the media industry on the telecommunications industry in 2014 Innovation Awards “Global Telecoms Business” (Global Telecom Business, referred to GTB) held, ZTE together with China Mobile Research Institute was awarded with Pre5G “Wireless Network Infrastructure Innovation” award; June, the world’s leading consulting firm Frost & Sullivan awarded ZTE “global 5G 2015 Technology Innovation Award” in recognition of ZTE’s outstanding performance in the 5G technology innovation and outstanding achievements, as well as industry leader.
