ZTE powers Hutchison 3G Austria’s national roaming with 9000 MOCNcells

Telecom Lead Asia: ZTE is powering Hutchison 3G (H3G) Austria’s national roaming (NR) based on MOCN (Multi-Operator Core Network) architecture.

Covering two thirds of the territory of Austria, Hutchison 3G allows NR partners to connect to the H3G UTRAN network, thanks to MOCN technology.

ZTE claims that both CS and PS traffic are increased significantly. The ZTE SDR base stations and network controller, together with the core ZTE network, ensured that the project, which covered more than 9000 MOCNcells, did not affect the experience of H3G’s subscribers.

H3G Austria users number is increasing fast. While test results show that the average upload rate is still over 50 percent higher than other networks and the average download rate is approximately 11.7Mbps. Thanks to excellent quality and good coverage of NR solution based on MOCN architecture from ZTE, H3G is operating a network with stronger competitiveness.

“NR based on MOCN architecture is a win-win solution for both parties. Relying on H3G’s network, constructed by ZTE, the NR partners can make full use of the network resources and deploy network commercialization with low TCO.

NR partners can also achieve thorough cooperation and complement each other’s service advantages. NR based on MOCN architecture helps operators save thousands of base station construction costs and shortens the 3G commercialization by about 2 years,” said Wang Shouchen, vice president, ZTE.

ZTE predicts that network sharing based on MOCN architecture will become a trend in the future, particularly in high-end markets such as Europe and North America. In sparsely populated areas with insufficient network coverage or unbalanced network resources, there is a need for network sharing for operators to reduce construction cost and speed up network commercialization.

Recently, ZTE said its energy saving solution assist mobile operators to save up to 40 percent in power consumption in their LTE networks.

According to test results, a single site employing this solution can save up to 40 percent in power consumption.
