ZTE’s Vision for 5G Architecture


ZTE Corporation, a multinational telecommunications vendor, has revealed plans to develop a new 5G access network architecture stemming from dynamic mesh networking and IP backhaul. ZTE claims that the move will enable 5G networks to utilize a more advanced modulation technique, space-division multiple access (SDMA), as well as use other innovative mobile telecoms technologies such as ultra-dense networks (UDN), massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), as well as device-to-device (D2D) communications. The basestations will become more aligned with each other laterally compared to legacy networks with the aid of a dynamic wireless mesh network.

Furthermore ZTE has begun channeling resources since 2009 into software-defined air-interface (SDA) technology, which will help to accommodate a flexible 5G access network. Besides acting as a key research area for 5G, ZTE's SDA technology permits the self-adoption of the air-interfaces t...
