ZTE highlights power-saving innovations

China’s ZTE Corporation a provider of information and communication technology solutions, is unveiling a number of 5G-Advanced  (5G-A)-rated innovations during the MWC 2024, many involving power-saving and energy-efficient offerings.

They include a radio platform that achieves near-constant PA efficiency, ensuring optimal performance at all times; the industry's first hibernation technology, which has been deployed at scale across over 300,000 AAUs to reduce the power consumption of AAUs to as low as 5 watts when there is no traffic; and the Uni-Radio, which achieves extremely simplified integration of seven bands into one, with dual-band AAU – the industry's unique five-band UBR and FDD full-band antenna – achieving a reduction of radio units from ten to one.

The dual-band 12TR RRU, meanwhile, enables a 35% lower RRU power consumption than the industry average, while the tri-band FDD Massive MiMo supports all RATs from 2G to 5G and NB-IoT with an impressive 640W output power in only 115L, achieving up to six times throughput improvement.

In addition there’s the industry's largest 1.6GHz bandwidth mmWave AAU, which enables a single cell to achieve 28Gbps+ capacity, empowering 10Gbps+ experiences, and the UniEngine: an all-in-one-box private 5G solution for core productions.

ZTE has also deployed what it calls the first 5G-A based vehicle-road-cloud integrated V2X network, empowering autonomous driving and enhancing traffic efficiency; developed the industry's first NTN ground base station; and completed the world's first 5G IoT-NTN direct-to-cell trial over the S-band as well as the industry's first maritime trial and NR-NTN lab and field trials.

Finally there’s 5G-A BBU, described as the integration of communication and computation for rich AI applications.
