ZTE launches LTE-R broadband network solution

Telecom network vendor ZTE has launched the LTE-R broadband network solution to ensure better safety to rail operators.

ZTE’s LTE-R broadband network solution was launched at the UIC HIGHSPEED conference in Tokyo, Japan.

The Chinese company claims that its LTE-R solution — based on the latest B-TrunC standard — offers capabilities for video group calls, group, private, emergency and broadcast calls and call priority functions.

The LTE-R solution, which is compatible with GSM-R systems, supports the false answer supervision (FAS) system, multimedia dispatching and the public land mobile network (PLMN)/public switched telephone network (PSTN) networks.

ZTE in a statement said that the new solution also offers multimedia trunked dispatching, video phones, real-time video surveillance and release of comprehensive passenger information.

End-to-end call setup delay is less than 350 milliseconds, while floor seizure delay is less than 200 milliseconds, said ZTE.

“The new LTE-R technology helps rail operators improves operations, maintenance and security,” said Sun Mingliang, VP of ZTE.
ZTE’s LTE-R solution comprises of FDD and TDD solution.

The core network can easily shift from a 2G network to a 4G evolved packet core (EPC) network, as both share a hardware platform and service deployment. The radio access network satisfies design requirements of a shared G/L platform and shared module
