Internationally renowned and trusted online publication, www.telecoms.com recently published a report highlighting ZTE‘s dual-connectivity performance testing based on end-to-end (E2E) commercial long-term evolution (LTE) platforms. Test results suggest that dual connections exponentially increased the end user rates in a variety of service modes. The new development was announced by Dr Han Gang, VP of ZTE’s TDD products. These findings were presented during the (TD-LTE) Initiative (GTI) Workshop in Budapest, Hungary.

The option to use higher frequencies makes TDD spectrum an important resource when LTE operators face capacity expansion challenges, according to Gang, who says that frequency division duplexing (FDD) will become an area of interest to equipment makers. The competition to create the finest tuning of TDD and FDD will be a crucial micro-macro battle for LTE players, according to Gang.

A flexible network architecture, in which small tweaks in FDD and TDD technology can create significant business advantages, is a critical development: “ZTE is laying a solid foundation for building healthier industry partnerships,” said Dr Han Gang. ZTE said it will continue to push the barriers of carrier aggregation technology. “Carrier aggregation and dual-connectivity technologies can co-exist,” said Gang, “working together can create a more prosperous and harmonious LTE industry.”
