SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today launched its ZXSDR R8880 ─ the world’s first CDMA/LTE dual-mode Remote Radio Unit (RRU) ─ at International CTIA Wireless 2010. ZTE’s ZXSDR R8880 dual-mode RRU currently supports 700 MHz and Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum band,

In addition to 700 MHz and AWS, the R8880 also supports CDMA2000 1X, EV-DO and LTE networks simultaneously, a key functionality as the industry moves toward CDMA and LTE network convergence. In the CDMA arena, it supports Two Transmit Two Receive (2T2R) and LTE Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technologies as well. Based on the widely commercialized ZTE Soft Defined Radio (SDR) platform, the R8880 can improve the speed of network deployment and significantly reduce a network Total Ownership Cost (TCO).

“We are seeing most North American CDMA operators opt for CDMA and LTE dual-mode networks, with AWS and 700 MHz the most commonly used spectrum sources,” said Ms. Li Jian, general manager of ZTE’s CDMA product line. “ZTE is addressing this market development by offering the R8880 as part of our leading UniRAN (Unified RAN) solution and helping North American tier-one CDMA operators move towards 4G.”
