ZTE Unveils 4G Qcell Solution for Multi-mode GSM/UMTS/LTE Networks
ZTE has announced a 4G active distribution solution that supports multi-frequency and multi-mode network deployment with superior indoor performance. ZTE’s new 4G Qcell solution, launched at the PT/Expo Comm China 2014 conference in Beijing, uses cloud-based network coordination technology to overcome signaling leakage and interference.
According to ZTE it’s Qcell solution implements Pico RRU network construction and power supplies through standard Ethernet cables, reducing construction difficulty and costs, and saving 60% of the time of deployment. The new solution helps operators quickly deploy low-cost and high-performance networks with integrated GSM/UMTS/LTE indoor coverage.
ZTE's Qcell solution uses the cell combination technology to optimize contiguous indoor coverage, reduce the interference from neighboring cells, and lower the drop rate of handoff calls. In addition, this solution uses cell splitting to meet the increasing requirements for capacity.
Company further adds that it's transmission compression algorithms and patented multi-mode integration technologies aggregate two 20 MHz carriers for an LTE cell through an Ethernet cable, or provide GSM/UMTS/LTE, CDMA/LTE, and other wireless systems through an Ethernet cable. In addition, the Qcell and macro eNodeBs share a network management system, where each node is visible, controllable, and manageable, significantly reducing operation and maintenance costs.
