MWC Shanghai 2015: ZTE unveils TDD+

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2015, ZTE is launching its time division duplexing plus (TDD+) solution.

The TDD+ solution provides a five-time performance improvement over traditional TDD, re-defining spectrum efficiency, peak rates and offering improved user experience.

The technology leverages the main components of TDD+ including massive multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO), multi user shared access (MUSA), ultra-dense network (UDN), 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), frequency division duplexing (FDD)-TDD joint operation, machine type communication (MTC), D-CoMP+ and more.

The TDD+ solution will help operators enhance their network capabilities based on existing system and devices.

ZTE  has come a long way in TDD+. The company initiated its pre-commercialization in 2014. In November 2014, it partnered with China Mobile to complete pre-commercial testing of the world first Massive MIMO base station.

In March 2015, ZTE announced its world first Pre5G solution officially at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. ZTE’s Pre5G UDN solution has also been fully tested and verified for commercial deployment.
