Pre5G FDD Massive MIMO – pushing the limits even further
Pre5G FDD Massive MIMO is the world’s first Massive MIMO solution based on FDD-LTE, brought to the market by ZTE as a result of its expertise and continuous innovation. Massive MIMO has now become available to all FDD-LTE networks which account for 85% of the world’s LTE networks. This represents a huge boost to the value of Massive MIMO, and will help operators dramatically increase network capacity without the requirement for additional spectrum.
Massive MIMO is one of the key technologies of 5G networks, and also a core solution of ZTE Pre5G, delivering 5G technologies to 4G operator networks. Pre5G FDD Massive MIMO offers compatibility with the existing terminals resulting in a very short time-to-market. Subscribers will benefit from super high-speed mobile broadband with the mobile phones they already own.
FDD Massive MIMO will be showcased at MWC 2017, as a live demo showing an astounding peak throughput as high as multi-Gbps and spectral efficiency improved by several times. The demo uses equipment including FDD Massive MIMO base station, BBU, core network and several UEs.
