Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and systems provider ZTE Corporation showcased its end-to-end 5G technologies at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2019, which opens today at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).
In a news release, the company said the showcase is a result of an all-around preparation for end-to-end 5G commercial use.
The vendor demoed a series of 5G terminals in the fields of 5G end-to-end solution, 5G&4G full-scene coverage, 5G commercial deployment, AI network intelligence, on-demand network, 5G open ecology and featured industrial applications.
It will also showcased multiple 5G technologies at the booths of three major operators, such as multi-user MIMO demonstration in the full commercial 5G network environment, 5G mmWave 16-channel 4K HD video demonstration, remote unmanned driving, robot remote precise control, 5G+AR holographic communication and interaction in the virtual space, and 5G mobile phones of multiple brands playing cloud games based on the ZTE commercial equipment of 5G new air interface.
Outside the exhibition hall, ZTE brought out experiences such as 8K VR live broadcast and 16 channels of HD video.
"The ZTE Shanghai R & D Center is open to customers for a visit. It will focus on six major 5G industrial applications, including 5G+8K extremely clear live broadcast, all-around 5G video analysis, 5G patrol robot, 5G smart water control, Class VR (education) and self-developed AR platform, waiting for customers to launch the journey of 5G innovation," it said.
Also, ZTE showcased a series of diversified 5G terminal devices, including the 5G Smartphone, 5G Indoor Router, 5G Outdoor Router, 5G Mobile Wi-Fi Router, 5G Ethernet Box, 5G Module and so forth at MWC Shanghai 2019 for the first time.
Headquartered in Shenzhen, China, ZTE provides integrated end-to-end innovations to over 160 countries around the world to enable increased connectivity and productivity.
ZTE said that the goal is to build a "supreme simple network." Hence, its Ultra-band Radio (UBR), for example, integrates three mainstream frequency bands: 900 M, 1800 M, and 2100 M, so that the number of site equipment is reduced by two-thirds.
To integrate the network architecture into a simple one, ZTE said it had launched an ultra-large-capacity all-standard IT BBU platform, supporting multi-mode network integration and long-term evolution with the simplest baseband.
"In addition, a simplified and flexible transport network is built. The network layers are simplified with the highly integrated all-in-one product. The traditional protocol architecture is simplified from six layers to four layers so that the service provisioning is quickly implemented," it added.
Meanwhile, it said that the series of AI Engine it developed had been applied in the full 5G scenarios to achieve zero touch, fast fault location, and network self-optimization, as well as enable the AI-based autonomous-evolving wireless network.
ZTE held the 5G Industry Development Summit Forum on June 26 to discuss 5G industry collaboration with industry organizations, operators, and industry partners.
