ZTE a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has announced its ZXSDR BS8920 micro base station won the 2011 Informa LTE Award for Best Enabling Technology at the LTE North America conference in Dallas, Texas.
The ZXSDR BS8920 was developed based on ZTE''s Uni-RAN platform, and is the world's first commercial LTE micro base station. The product’s hardware cost is 50 per cent less than traditional distributed base stations, and its auxiliary facility costs are 30 per cent less in comparison. It is compact and lightweight and supports all-standard LTE bands. Its low power consumption helps operators reduce total cost of ownership.
The Informa award solidifies ZTE’s leading position as a provider of commercial LTE products, all-network solutions, and enhanced small cell coverage technology that can be used in airports, shopping centers, subways and other indoor hotspots. Awards at Informa-sponsored LTE North America are considered highly competitive in the telecommunications industry. The selection committee comprises delegates of global leading operators, industry analysts and media.
