ZTE Corporation showcased Qcell Plus, its next-generation digital indoor mobile broadband solution, at the 11th global Small Cell World Summit in London on May 24. The upgraded Qcell Plus solution helps operators build evolving-towards-5G digital indoor infrastructure with a view to providing enhanced digital architectures, digital services and digital operation and maintenance, as to deliver a full indoor digital experience to users.
Supporting key Pre5G technologies such as 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), massive carrier aggregation (CA), distributed multiple-input multiple-output (D-MIMO), and LTE augmented access (LAA), the Qcell Plus solution can bring an nGbps experience to users. It adds to 300MB full broadband, which ZTE first implemented as an industry first to meet operators’ demands for sharing and co-building indoor infrastructure and to improve economic benefits.
The Qcell Plus solution can provide various digital services, such as indoor high-precision positioning, local distribution, local caching, big data, and the Internet of Things. With open APIs, this solution allows a variety of third-party applications and content to enter operators’ network channels in order to meet the diversified service needs of indoor users and to add value to the channel.
With all nodes visible, measurable and manageable, the digital operation and maintenance of the Qcell Plus solution, which includes various operation and maintenance scenarios, can implement in-depth indoor performance analysis and optimization to dramatically improve the precision level of fault location and operation and maintenance efficiency. The upgraded Qcell Plus solution has already become the new engine to accelerate the drive towards indoor services in the 4G era.
