ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, was early in identifying the opportunities opened by 5G and on developing a 5G strategy, as commercial deployments of 5th generation mobile networks, more widely known as 5G, approaches.

With a focus on 5G end-to-end solutions, the company has pulled out all the stops in terms of standards formulation, research and development and validation of 5G technologies, in a move to establish industry leadership in the core technologies, the commercialization and the economies of scale for the next generation of mobile networks.

ZTE has placed a strong bet on 5G and has backed up that bet with a team of more than 4,500 high-tech talents devoted to 5G research backed by an annual investment of three billion yuan (roughly US$500 million).

In addition to taking the lead in promoting massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology, which will be key to significantly improving spectrum efficiency as well as expanding network capacity and coverage in the 5G era, ZTE was the first to apply 5G technology on a 4G network, enabling commercial 5G deployments ahead of schedule and improving the spectrum efficiency of the 4G network by a factor of eight.

The early moves have helped both operators and users benefit from 5G technology, while accelerating progress of Massive MIMO deployments amid continuous innovation, in addition to contributing technology proposals including test data results to 5G standards.

In order to meet the requirement for massive network access across 5G networks, industry-wide non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been proposed, with the Multi User Shared Access (MUSA) solution, the one proposed by ZTE, being the selected candidate. The solution enables the system to support 3-6 times of number of user accesses using the same time-frequency resources, allowing for genuinely conflict-free scheduling and greatly reducing terminal power consumption.

In China’s second phase of 5G testing, the MUSA technology achieved a performance of 90 million connections/MHz/hour, far exceeding the benchmark defined by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

Because of the originality of the leading edge MUSA technology, ZTE, as the first drafter, led the adoption of NOMA by the 3GPP RAN Working Group 1, the group responsible for the specification of the physical layer of the radio interface (radio layer 1) for 5G New Radio (NR), driving the development of industrial standards.

At the same time, with strong chip design and development ability, ZTE launched the industry’s highest integrated next generation baseband unit (NG BBU) based on a proprietary high-performance vector processing baseband chip developed in-house, and followed with the development of the industry’s lightest and smallest 5G active antenna unit (AAU) based on a highly integrated digital IF chip.

In China’s first and second phase of 5G testing, ZTE’s 5G base station not only fulfilled the basic requirements, but also completed the 26 GHz high-frequency field test, with outstanding void performance results. Today, ZTE launched China’s third phase of 5G testing with a full range of 5G products, and completed the roll out of equipment to the market and end-to-end debugging of commercial solutions.

Shenzhen, China:

ZTE announced that it has become the first vendor to deploy vBRAS solution in the Software Defined Network (SDN) of China Mobile’s trial network.

ZTE has completed the automatic deployment of Virtual Network Function (VNF) and Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) in an SDN controller architecture, which proves that ZTE Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution has the capability of automatic deployment in the operators’ next-generation networks. This automatic deployment greatly improves vBRAS launching efficiency, saving deployment time by about 30%.

In addition, ZTE’s vBRAS-C, featuring innovative in-built Load Balancing (LB) module, can reduce network routing configuration, realize proper resource utilization, and pave the way for elastic expansion of user scale.

ZTE’s vBRAS solution adopts a separated Control/User (C/U) architecture, in which, vBRAS-C is deployed in the core Telecom Integration Cloud (TIC) while vBRAS-U is deployed in the edge TIC. In this project, ZTE uses ZENIC controller to take centralized control of the core TIC SDN, which shows that ZTE’s vBRAS and controller are able to decouple the lower layer resource pool from the cloud platform.

As an important parnter of China Mobile in its Novonet project, ZTE makes innovations in vBRAS solution, becomes the first to propose vBRAS integrated with NFV and SDN technologies, and assists China Mobile in efficient and elastic next-generation network evolution.

Shenzhen, China:

ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, proposed and edited the Flex Coherent DWDM Transmission Framework. It was approved unanimously at the 3rd quarterly meeting of Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) in Halifax, Canada, and has been released officially.

The Flex Coherent framework confirms three optical network application scenarios: long-haul, metro and data center interconnection (DCI), identifying the functional architecture and building blocks of a Flex Coherent optical transceiver module to support all the above Beyond-100G applications.

The framework suggests flexible net rates, modulation schemes and channel bandwidths supported by one single optical carrier, and also recommends optical carrier aggregation for long-distance Super-channel transmission.

“This framework once again unites the industry around to select one technical approach for Beyond-100G optical transmission. Like the successful 100G consensus reached in 2009, this would help the industry to form a Beyond-100G optical transmission ecosystem.”said Dr. Hungchang Chien of ZTE Optics Labs, USA, the technical editor of this Flex Coherent framework document.

ZTE has long been committed to the R&D of Beyond-100G optical transmission with a number of key technology patents and innovative achievements. In 2016, ZTE successfully transmitted 800G single-carrier 120GBaud PDM-16QAM wavelength division signals on Terawave fiber over 1,200 km. Later in 2017, ZTE realized the transmission of 84GBaud PDM-8QAM wavelength division signals on standard single-mode fiber (SSMF) over 2,125km. In 2017, ZTE achieved the transmission of 34GBaud single-carrier PM-256QAM signals on SSMF over 80km in an experiment, verifying that the probabilistic shaping can highly improve the transmission performance of 400G 256QAM.

As a pioneer in Beyond-100G technology, ZTE has been creating new 400G single-carrier transmission records to lay a solid foundation for researches on single-carrier higher-rate optical transmission technologies.
