ZTE Launches Industry's Smallest WiMAX 16e RRU Device

    New Equipment Helps Operators to Reduce Network Deployment and Maintenance

    SHENZHEN, China, Feb. 9 /CNW/ -- ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), a leading
global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has
officially launched the industry's smallest WiMAX 16e RRU (Remote Radio Unit)
product, the R9110 that helps reduce the number of base stations by 50%, hence
enabling telecom operators to maximize their return on investment (ROI). The
company will be exhibiting the new device at the Mobile World Congress
Barcelona 2009 from February 16-19 to demonstrate its continuous R&D efforts
and expertise in WiMAX field.
    ZTE RRU R9110 is based on BF4(*)8 Multi-Antenna technology, which
effectively improves signal quality from a single base station, allowing
extensive network coverage and enhanced network performance. Compared with
traditional devices using MIMO technology, RRU R9110 further minimizes the
number of base stations from 35%-50%, helping telecom operators reduce network
construction and maintenance costs. In addition, the latest RRU device
supports dual carrier discontinuous spectrum, enabling a maximum speed of
100MHz expansion between uplink and downlink. By leveraging on this advantage,
telecom carriers using traditional FDD spectrum can save cost and investment
on RRU, antenna and wireless tower required in network expansion by up to 50%.
    "We are elated to be part of this prestigious telecom industry event in
Barcelona to demonstrate the extraordinary features of our latest RRU product.
This is highly significant for us in showing the result of our remarkable R&D
efforts and state-of-the art technology in the WiMAX arena," said Mr. Zhao
Songpu, ZTE's General Manager of WiMAX products. "With the introduction of our
latest RRU product to the market, we are offering cost-effective solution for
telecom carriers to make network construction more flexible, hence helping
them to achieve low TCO and enhance their ROI."
    ZTE is one of the few vendors in the world that pioneered research and
development on WiMAX. It is also the only Chinese company with a
representative in the 15-man Board of Directors in the WiMAX Forum(TM), and
with about a dozen of WiMAX R&D institutions located in different regions
globally. As of November 2008, ZTE has already deployed more than 30 WiMAX 16e
networks across different regions and countries, including Asia-Pacific,
Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the Americas region.
    ZTE will be exhibiting at booth 8B127 in Hall 8 and hospitality suite
CY13+14 during the event.
