SoftBank Corp. Key Developments

ZTE Corporation Signs Memorandum of Understanding with SoftBank Corp

ZTE Corporation announced the company signed a memorandum of understanding with SoftBank Corp. to collaborate on research and development on Pre5G mobile communications networks technology. Under the MOU, the two companies will cooperate on R&D, evaluation and verification of mobile communications solutions based on ZTE’s Pre5G technology, including Massive MIMO (multiple input multiple output). The agreement builds on existing cooperation between SoftBank and ZTE on technologies including Massive MIMO, UDN (ultra-dense networks) and MUSA (multi-user shared access). ZTE’s Massive MIMO base stations have the capability to support more than 100 antenna elements, and provide higher space division multiplexing gains than traditional 8-antenna base stations without changing existing terminals or air interfaces, greatly enhancing spectrum utilization. With ZTE’s Massive MIMO base station, up to eight users can transfer data simultaneously. ZTE’s Pre5G Massive MIMO products have won numerous global awards.
