ZTE Corporation, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today carried out a record-breaking single-cell HSUPA data rate improvement test in Shenzhen, China.

The result of the test showed that the HSUPA data transfer rate during the trial reached 15.2Mbps out of a total possible 16Mbps, breaking the previous record of 12Mbps.

As smartphones have gained popularity and mobile multimedia services have expanded, user requirements for high-speed data rates have become more sophisticated, creating a bottleneck. During its test, ZTE employed a HSUPA capacity improvement solution that includes interference cancellation technology, multi-antenna independent scheduling technology, and four antennae receiving technology. These elements increased the HSUPA data rate by four times without a need to upgrade the terminals. The test shows that operators can use the ZTE solution to reduce capacity bottlenecking.

“Social networking and multimedia services have enabled more users to upload content onto networks, creating issues for operators,” said ZTE GU Product General Manager Mr. Pu Yingchun. “We are particularly pleased with the outcome of this test as it shows uplink data rates can be improved by 50 per cent and that ZTE technology can alleviate bottlenecking issues.”

ZTE invests 10 per cent of its income in R&D; more than RMB 2 billion has been invested over the past three years. In 2012, ZTE attained the world’s top rank in terms of international PCT applications with 2,826. As of the end of December 2011, ZTE has signed 30 LTE commercial contracts and has deployed LTE trial networks for over 100 operators.
