ZTE’s 3D-MIMO closer to commercial deployment

ZTEZTE’s proprietary Pre5G technology is a step closer to commercial deployment after the successful testing of the 3D-MIMO (three-dimensional multiple input multiple output) solution on China Mobile’s commercial network.

The technology helped increase average data throughput by two to four times, with data rates at the cell edge going up as much as five to seven times, according to results from a test conducted on China Mobile’s commercial network in a metropolitan area of Guangzhou.

The pre-commercial test demonstrated the capability of ZTE’s 3D-MIMO solution to improve network throughput and coverage in an area with a high concentration of tall buildings.

3D-MIMO provides more precise beam forming and more effective spatial multiplexing to greatly strengthen the network’s resistance to interference and improve the performance of cells and the overall network, and is a key component of ZTE’s pre5G technology.
