ZTE Corp today announced the launch of two commercial TD-LTE base stations, BBU- B8300 and RRU- R8962. The development is likely to assist the fast commercialization of TD-LTE which may find relevance in the Indian market as well.
The B8300 base station is based on ZTE’s SDR platform and can be upgraded from TD-SCDMA to TD-LTE or TD/TD-LTE dual mode. The R8962 base station supports two channels with 20W transmission power each which ZTE says is the highest transmission power and power efficiency in the industry.
Today’s development follows ZTE showcasing a TD-LTE network at the Shanghai World Expo.
