ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, is pleased to announce the availability of X-Site, a new solution designed to enable smooth evolution to multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) networks for mobile carriers.

The innovative new ZTE X-Site solution will help carriers increase site capacity by as much as 40 percent, speed up time-to-market of new services, and reduce network management and planning costs.

While universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) services won’t provide a steady revenue source for carriers for several more years, 4G long term evolution (LTE) services are growing at a much faster pace, making it a critical challenge to balance the two for smooth and flexible evolution to future networks. X-Site offers a seamless evolution path from UMTS and 2x2 MIMO LTE networks to higher-order MIMO networks, with three main features: remote radio unit (RRU) cascading, vertical sector split, and self-adaptive antenna.

RRU cascading connects RRUs for different bands directly with each other, and then coupling from one RRU to antenna via radio frequency (RF) cables, enabling multi-band services at one site without changing the existing antennas and with no external combiners. It not only saves material costs but also lowers engineering costs and speeds up time-to-market.

Vertical sector split helps enhance network capacity without investing in new antennas, requiring no additional network planning, thus making instant deployment possible and giving operators a competitive edge.

Self-adaptive antenna makes switching between three-sector mode and six-sector mode very easy, giving operators even more flexibility in UMTS capacity enhancement and MIMO network evolution.

As a leading global provider of telecommunication solutions, ZTE has made great efforts to help carriers manage and resolve their most critical network challenges as next-generation technologies are deployed. X-Site is designed to help carriers address network evolution issues, protect network investment to the greatest extent possible, and to offer a smooth evolution path to higher-order MIMO LTE networks.
