ZTE Launches the Industry’s First PC-based CPT for LTE Networks
22 October 2012, Shenzhen, China – ZTE 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, today announced it has launched the industry’s first personal computer-based capacity planning tool (CPT) for LTE networks, utilizing an innovative concept to overcome long-standing limitations in capacity planning technology, providing operators with a professional and systematic aid for building the highest-performance networks.
Leveraging ZTE’s deep experience in network planning, the 3GPP protocol-based CPT is tailored for LTE networks, and incorporates four technology patents. With a powerful set of system-modeling and simulation features developed in reference to data from real networks, the CPT provides operators with a competitive tool for commercial LTE network deployments. Compared with traditional solutions, ZTE’s CPT offers a more than 20% improvement in accuracy and an efficiency advantage of more than 80%.
“ZTE’s newly released CPT is based on an innovative concept, and provides a one-stop and flexible capacity planning capability, greatly reducing the difficulty of LTE network planning and improving our customers’ operating efficiency,” said Wang Shouchen, vice president of ZTE. “The tool’s planning accuracy has vastly improved compared with traditional solutions. In the near future, ZTE will also launch other versions based on different network scenarios to meet the customer’s needs.’’
As a world-leading wireless communication solution provider, ZTE is committing increasing resources for the development of LTE and evolving future technologies, establishing the company’s position at the forefront of the industry. As of the end of the third-quarter, ZTE has won 38 LTE commercial contracts, and is working with more than 100 operators in Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and Middle East on trial LTE networks.
