ZTE Ships 200,000th Software Defined Radio Base Station

ZTE noted the shipment of its 200,000th Software Defined Radio (SDR) base station. It took the company almost one year to achieve the first 100,000 SDR units shipped by April 2009, and only six months to ship the second 100,000. The fast growth showcases global operators' recognition and favor of ZTE as a leading provider of SDR base stations, helping them meet the rapid market needs.

A variety of multi-band and multi-standard wireless communications systems can be implemented ZTE's SDR technology, including GSM, UMTS, CDMA2000, TD-SCDMA, FDD LTE, WiMAX and TDD LTE, all on the same hardware platform. 3G networks utilizing ZTE SDR base stations are being constructed across China, including a TD-SCDMA network (China Mobile), WCDMA network (China Unicom) and CDMA2000 network (China Telecom).

  • In September this year, ZTE and CSL, the largest mobile operator in Hong Kong, jointly released an LTE commercial test network. Based on ZTE's SDR base station platform, CSL successfully built GSM/UMTS/HSPA+/LTE multi-mode networks with a maximum download rate of 127.552Mbps and a mobile download rate of 43.9Mbps.
