ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for communications, has been selected as one of the partners to contribute to Deutsche Telekom's 5G:haus.

In a conference held by the Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance in Frankfurt, Dr. Bruno Jacobfeuerborn, chairman of the NGMN and CTO of Deutsche Telekom, officially announced the launch of the initiative which aims to continue the development and standardisation of 5G. Deutsche Telekom leads the development of global communication standards in collaboration with scientific research companies, emerging businesses, and network suppliers from around the world.

As a contributor to the 5G innovation lab, ZTE will continue to be deeply involved in the NGMN's 5G work and will cooperate with other operators to promote the standardisation of 5G. ZTE will also join Deutsche Telekom's research into the innovation and progression of key 5G technologies.

Shi Lirong, CEO of ZTE Corporation, said “ZTE is one of the major innovators promoting 5G technologies and standards. ZTE will continue to develop its pre-research and patent portfolio of key 5G technologies to further enhance the core competitiveness of this next generation technology. ZTE will contribute to innovate global 5G technologies and standards through cooperation with partners in the 5G innovation lab program.”

ZTE has been recognised as taking a leading role in the field of 5G, and will maintain its strategic investment in key 5G technologies in the future. ZTE will also continue researching and testing 5G technologies while spearheading innovation in the field. In July 2014, at the LTE & 5G World Summit, ZTE first proposed innovative Pre5G concepts before putting them into commercial practice in November. Together with China Mobile and other world leading operators, ZTE completed the pre–commercial testing of Pre5G Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO). At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015, ZTE demonstrated the world's first integrated and commercial base station of Pre5G Massive MIMO. In 2015 ZTE plans to introduce other key Pre5G solutions, such as user densification networks (UDN) and multi-user shared access (MUSA) solutions.

The announcement of ZTE’s contribution to the 5G innovation lab closely follows an invitation from Carlos Moedas, EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation to join the H2020 program to develop 5G technologies and commit to the research and development of digital technologies in the future.
