ZTE China has issued a “5G Medium and Long Term Planning for Operators” white paper summarizing its mid- to long-term 5G approach to include medium- to long-term 5G implementation guidance for telecommunications carriers ( ZTE News Release 1 , White paper download page in PDF format ). We present a three-phase roadmap that involves building cost-effective networks, fostering digitalization in different sectors, and realizing more valuable organizational reforms in order to resolve the challenges that occur during 5G growth.
To incorporate these roadmaps, from terminals to broadband networking, mission-critical networks and infrastructure cloud systems, end-to-end 5G networks, commercial 5G private networks, 5G To-C (from 5G to general customers) and 5G Introduce To-B (from 5G to business customers) options. By integrating ROI (return on investment capital) study, the firm plans to analyze and revisit each approach.
In addition, Common Core and AAPC (Automatic Antenna Pattern Control) integrating 2G to 5G, SuperDSS (3G to 5G dynamic frequency sharing), PowerPilot (service-based energy saving solution), FAST (FDD Assisted) will also introduce a range of innovative solutions for the future, such as Super TDD, FDD method-assisted TDD communication, UniSite (base station simplification), and UniSite (base station simplification.
Strengthening Contact Uplinks
A white paper, “5G Uplink Enhancement Technology White Paper,” was also published by ZTE, which summarizes attempts to improve 5G uplink connectivity ( ZTE News Release 2 , PDF format white paper download site ). It incorporates technical outlines, performance analysis, implementation samples, etc to improve uplink connectivity, based on the company’s testing findings in the 5G area.
Additional uplink coverage and bandwidth will be needed for rapidly diversified 5G software, such as IoT, cloud storage, and high-definition video live streaming. The white paper notes that due to constraints on TDD technologies, the existing mid-frequency band for 5G does not offer adequate output in terms of uplink coverage and power, and an effective approach is required to boost it. That, it is said.
On top of that by sharing the frequency band for 5G NR with the traditional low frequency band, the uplink enhancement technology implemented in 3GPP Release 15 is claimed to be able to deliver more cost-effective and competitive 5G network services. The use of technology such as dual networking (EN-DC), carrier aggregation (CA) and supplementary uplink is clarified (SUL). It also adds the Uplink Tx Switching feature, which will be added in Release 16 and increases the dual stream capability of the TDD 5G NR system during the uplink.
In the white paper, it is possible to change the carrier wave in terms of both time and frequency by connecting this Uplink Tx Switching and CA, enhancing uplink range, minimizing latency time, and boosting 5G connectivity capability. It’s going to be possible.
