ZTE Launches Full-Outdoor Microwave System With Patented Technology

SHENZHEN, China --(Business Wire)--

ZTE (News - Alert) Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices launched a new full-outdoor microwave transmission system based on patented technology at the 2013 Mobile World Congress, offering substantial performance enhancements to meet the needs of today's ultra-fast LTE (News - Alert) 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 that 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.

ZTE is committed to the research and development of new microwave products, and has established six microwave research and development centers globally. By the end of 2012, ZTE has cooperated with more than 150 operators from 90 countries to build microwave transmission networks.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
