ZTE Launches World's First CDMA/LTE Dual-Mode Remote Radio Unit

ZTE introduced a CDMA/LTE dual-mode Remote Radio Unit (RRU) that supports the 700 MHz and Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum band, CDMA2000 1X, EV-DO and LTE simultaneously.

In the CDMA arena, it supports Two Transmit Two Receive (2T2R) and LTE Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technologies as well. The platform is based on the ZTE Soft Defined Radio (SDR) platform.

"We are seeing most North American CDMA operators opt for CDMA and LTE dual-mode networks, with AWS and 700 MHz the most commonly used spectrum sources," said Ms. Li Jian, general manager of ZTE's CDMA product line. "ZTE is addressing this market development by offering the R8880 as part of our leading UniRAN (Unified RAN) solution and helping North American tier-one CDMA operators move towards 4G."http://www.zte.com.cn
