Recent Xiong An, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Suzhou, Chengdu, Lanzhou and other cities have officially started the 5G pilot.
5G and 4G will work together
Chinese market brings economies of scale
"There is no doubt that 5G is accelerating and will work hand in hand with 4G in the future," said Zhang Jianguo, a senior vice president at ZTE.
However, early deployment of 5G, network coverage, the terminal is not sound enough, a large number of data services still need 4G bearer. "Even with the 5G scale, ultra-high speed and low latency access are provided by 5G networks, while 4G networks will guarantee 5G fallback and 4G user experience," said Zhang Jianguo.
This allows ZTE's accumulation in the 4G era to play a role.
"The correlation between 5G and 4G is very high, and we have a very large shipment of 4G that has accumulated a lot of things that can be used in 5G. In addition, we believe China's domestic market may go 5G Faster, this advantage brought by the large size of the domestic market will also support our better advantage in the competition in the global market. "Fan Xiaobing, senior vice president of ZTE, in an interview with" Securities Daily "reporter Said.
From the new spectrum of 5G, TDD will play a more important role. ZTE has accumulated rich TDD technology, a series of 5G solutions with a full range of scenarios, flexible deployment, abundant scale product development and network operation experience, occupying one third of the total new TDD shipments in the world for many years in a row. ZTE will maximize the advantages of the 4G era and lay the leading foundation for 5G's mature commercial and cost control.
Up to now, governments and operators all over the world have planned to scale 5G by 2020. The Chinese government has planned to build the world's largest 5G commercial network by 2020. However, the largest 5G commercial network in the Chinese market will bring economies of scale and bring operator experience and cost bonus.
For the domestic market and foreign markets, Fan Xiaobing said in an interview that the domestic market is definitely the foundation. "We want to base ourselves on these domestic markets and also hope that with the help of 5G, we will be able to complete a place where there was no breakthrough in overseas markets before. We are also very confident Be able to get further breakthroughs in the market or a better share than 4G. "
3 billion yuan is invested each year
ZTE said it is ready
In addition to leading economies of scale, Fan Xiaobing also supports the confidence of ZTE 5G technology and commercial leader.
It is reported that ZTE invested 3 billion yuan each year, has formed a team of more than 4,500 technical experts, focusing on 5G core technology. ZTE 5G base station in China 5G test the first and second stage of outstanding performance, not only completed the "prescribed action", but also took the lead in completing the 26GHz high-frequency field test, air interface performance outstanding. Today, ZTE has brought a full range of 5G products to start the third phase of China's 5G testing and took the lead in completing the equipment entry and end-to-end business commissioning.
Based on a number of 5G ZTE innovations, a large number of high-end operators have chosen to "dance" with ZTE.
Opened China's first 5G pre-commercial base station with China Mobile, opened the first 5G field test with Softbank in Japan and built the first 5G pre-commercial network for Europe ... ... In 2017, ZTE's 5G global cooperation territory has been extended to more than 20 Top operators. Interested in the first batch of commercial 5G operators have unite ZTE 5G strategic cooperation and testing.
In November 2017, together with Qualcomm and China Mobile, ZTE jointly completed the world's first end-to-end system test based on the 3GPP R15 standard and opened up the "super-bandwidth and zero-wait" capabilities of the "Ren Du Er Mai" industry chain and 5G networks Be fully released.
On the eve of the 5G commercial launch, ZTE Corp. announced that it has introduced a series of 5G-based commercial products that cover 5G series high-low-frequency access devices, a diversified 5G bearer solution, and a flexible and efficient 5G core network. In 2019 large-scale deployment of 5G operators are well prepared.
According to the latest report from consulting firm Ovum, ZTE is the only global leader in the 5G series of products such as Massive MIMO technology, 5G series base stations, 5G bearer, backhaul / prequel, 5G core network and terminals Some of the two vendors that offer a complete 5G end-to-end solution have a more holistic and stereoscopic understanding of the entire 5G network.
