Qualcomm, ZTE collaborate to boost UMTS system performance

The Interference Cancellation technology to enhance data throughput by up to 60%

By CBR Staff Writer

Qualcomm, a developer of wireless technologies, products and services, and ZTE, a provider of telecommunications equipment and network systems, have announced a collaboration to enhance the capacity and performance of UMTS systems with the integration of Qualcomm’s Uplink Interference Cancellation (ULIC) technology into ZTE’s UMTS base station products.

According to Qualcomm, the new technology is expected to enable the UMTS operators to enhance their UMTS data throughput by up to 60% and also increase voice capacity by up to 45%. The ULIC technology helps to improve system capacity by eliminating interference from multiple uplink data streams.

Jing Wang, executive vice president of Qualcomm Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, said: Interference cancellation is helping to redefine the performance characteristics of UMTS by improving system capacity and delivering data throughput that is on par with LTE networks.

It not only provides faster speeds, but also creates a better experience for the growing number of people using mobile devices to upload and share data-intensive content, such as photographs and videos. We are pleased to work with ZTE in their efforts to bring ULIC-enhanced base stations to market.
