ZTE & Qualcomm’s new solution aims to empower UMTS systems with comparable LTE capabilities
TT Bureau |  |  06 Jul 2009

ZTE Corp and Qualcomm announced a new collaboration to work towards enhancing the capacity and performance of UMTS systems to boost data throughput by 60 % thereby delivering a user experience reasonably comparable to LTE in a similar channel bandwidth. The tie-up further claims that the solution will also help operators to increase voice capacity by 45%.

The new solution will incorporate Qualcomm’s Uplink Interference Cancellation (ULIC) technology into ZTE’s UMTS base station products.

Qualcomm says that the ULIC concept can deliver improved system capacity by eliminating interference from multiple uplink data streams. The tie-up assures that the design is scalable and supports cancellation for a large number of simultaneous users and transmissions on the uplink.

“ZTE serves the world’s top mobile operators based on our ability to consistently deliver high-quality and high-capacity network performance,” said Zhang Jianguo, general manager of ZTE’s UMTS products. “Our ongoing relationship with Qualcomm has enabled us to commercialize leading edge technologies that bring value to the entire wireless ecosystem. Using ULIC technology, we are providing operators with a highly efficient means to optimize their system performance while also extending the lives of their existing networks.”

“Interference cancellation is helping to redefine the performance characteristics of UMTS by improving system capacity and delivering data throughput that is on par with LTE networks,” said Jing Wang, executive vice president, Qualcomm Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. “It not only provides faster speeds, but also creates a better experience for the growing number of people using mobile devices to upload and share data-intensive content, such as photographs and videos.  We are pleased to work with ZTE in their efforts to bring ULIC-enhanced base stations to market.”
