SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, is pleased to complete a successful demonstration of the world’s first 40 MHz uplink Carrier Aggregation (CA) over a TD-LTE network, in partnership with Marvell Technology Group.

With a terminal device by Marvell, ZTE achieved a consistent uplink data rate of 90 Mbps using 0 system configuration ratio (uplink/downlink: 3/1) and 64QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) in the demonstration at the 10th Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) in Shanghai, China. The terminal provided by Marvell is the world's first that supports uplink CA and 64QAM.

One of the major challenges faced by TD-LTE operators is limited uplink throughput. The successful demonstration by ZTE and Marvell will help the industry overcome the limitation, enabling downlink CA to use the single- or dual-stream beam forming technology on multiple carriers to improve the performance of TD-LTE networks.

Carrier aggregation is a core technology for LTE-Advanced networks, enabling operators to combine multiple carriers at the same or different frequency bands into one transmission channel to take full advantage of limited frequency spectrums to multiplex a cell's peak rate.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
