ZTE’s Micro-Base Station Enhances CSL’s Services at Rugby Sevens 2013
SHENZHEN, China -- March 27, 2013
ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code:
000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment,
network solutions and mobile devices, today announced their micro-base station
solution was used to enhance Hong Kong mobile operator CSL’s communication
services at the Hong Kong Stadium during the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens 2013.
The base station enhanced services throughout the tournament and allowed
double the amount of data traffic and four-and-a-half times the amount of
voice calls to be handled seamlessly, compared to the previous year. Over
130,000 voice calls and 230GB of data traffic were handled by the network
alone with a call connection success rate of 99.9%. In addition, over 80% of
full webpage loads were completed within 10 seconds, thanks to the increased
capacity provided by the added base stations.
The BS8912 micro-base station weighs 12kg and has a built-in lightning
protection module. It can be powered with an AC or DC power supply and
installed indoors or outdoors. The micro-base station is designed support 3
MIMO carrier waves, and has a powerful data processing capability of 84Mbps
downlink and 11.5Mbps uplink. The BS8912 micro-base station supports a
self-organizing network function—the base station can self-launch,
self-configure, self-plan and self-correct. This dramatically lowers workload
when adding new sites.
“Offering a superior network experience has always been CSL’spriority and we
are thrilled to provide enhanced services at the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens 2013
using ZTE’s micro-base station,” said Christian Daigneault, Chief Technology
Officer for CSL. “Testing theZTE micro-base station was also a first step for
CSL as we experiment with small cell technologies or Hetnet which will become
critical in the near future especially in highly dense regions like Hong

This will increase the number of connected users and ensure successful
communications services. Despite the substantial growth of number of calls and
