ZTE has released the new personal computer (PC)-based capacity planning tool (CPT) for LTE networks that offer users professional and systematic support for developing maximised performance networks.
Incorporating four technology patents, the new 3GPP protocol-based CPT includes a powerful set of system-modelling and simulation features that are said to provide users with a competitive tool for commercial LTE network deployments.
ZTE vice president Wang Shouchen said the new CPT provides a one-stop and flexible capacity planning capability, reducing immensely the difficulty of LTE network planning and enhancing customers operating efficiency.
"The tool’s planning accuracy has vastly improved compared with traditional solutions. In the near future, ZTE will also launch other versions based on different network scenarios to meet the customer’s needs,” Shouchen said.
ZTE claims that the CPT offers a 20% enhanced accuracy and 80% efficiency advantage over traditional solutions.
