ZTE introduces LTE BeamHop application

LTE A8808 Active Antenna System (AAS) product is based on LTE BeamHop Solution

By CBR Staff Writer

Wireless telecommunications applications provider ZTE has launched new LTE BeamHop Solution at the Mobile Asia Expo which will allow operators to take benefit from LTE by leveraging their existing 2G and 3G base stations.

ZTE has also showcased the LTE A8808 Active Antenna System (AAS) product which is based on LTE BeamHop Solution.

The A8808 product features both active and passive antennae. The passive part replaces operators’ existing 2G and 3G antennae, while the active part is used for the newly added LTE network.

Since the LTE radio unit is integrated into the existing antenna, the new LTE network can be deployed without purchasing any additional antenna site space.

ZTE vice president Wang Shouchen said, the LTE BeamHop AAS application enables ‘one deployment, two networks and flexible coverage.

"This solution increases the transmission power of the base station and the sensitivity of the receivers, which significantly boosts network capacity and coverage. This BeamHop solution will help operators smoothly transition from 2G and 3G to LTE, without adding new antenna space," said Shouchen.
