ZTE has a huge list of launches, not just with the mobile phone but also with the bigger sectors, one of them being the Base Stations, where the Pico Base Station for the LTE networking was launched, being the first in the industry. This Pico station is made to cut the costs, and at the same time provide better networking and results than the other Pico stations already in the league.
The main areas of work, where these Pico stations can come to the good use include the hot spots, blind spots, cell-edge spots and indoors. And the deployment and work of these stations can depend on the traffic and need of the network.
“The ZTE next-generation Pico is a unique base station that can be applied in various scenarios” said ZTE Vice President and General Manager of the TDD product line Scott Wang. “It reduces costs and provides wider coverage and higher throughput than other Pico products.”
Here is the press release from the ZTE:
ZTE today launched an industry first, next-generation TD-LTE multi-mode Pico base station at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.
The new Pico base station is used to mitigate problems associated with rapidly increasing mobile service data requirements and provides comprehensive coverage and capacity offloading to supplement macro coverage. It is based on ZTE’s leading SDR platform and supports LTE and WiFi simultaneously.
The base station can be deployed in hot spots, blind spots, cell-edge spots and indoors dependent on traffic. It is also compatible with Micro, Macro and Femto base stations.
In addition, the multi-mode Pico is based on ZTE’s leading SDR platform and supports LTE and WiFi simultaneously. Because of this, operators can configure Pico to work in WiFi to attract users at the initial stages of LTE construction, and later transfer them to TD-LTE/WiFi dual-mode as the LTE network matures. Moreover, the Pico can work in CPE mode and use TD-LTE as wireless backhaul while simultaneously working as a WiFi access point. The relay-assisted product also enables operators that lack wireline backhaul resources to efficiently develop their advanced heterogeneous LTE networks.
