ZTE, a Chinese telecommunications technology solutions provider, has announced the completion of 5G New Radio (NR) field trials with China Unicom. To attain data rates of up to 2Gbps for single-user equipment during the trial, the company used its pre-commercial sub-6GHz 5G base station at the 3.5Hz frequency with 100MHz bandwidth alongside Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (Massive MIMO) technology.
The tests were conducted in partnership with the Network Technology Research Institute, Network Construction department, and China Unicom’s Guangdong branch.
ZTE also announced the global release of its Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) Intelligent Energy Management System.
"For technology enterprises, laboratory equipment accounts for a high percentage of electricity consumption to ... ensure efficient operations. However, equipment often remains idle outside of office hours. With ZTE's NB-IoT Intelligent Energy Management System, enterprises can leverage its energy-saving control function to effectively reduce energy consumption during research and production," ZTE explained.
"With the use of NB-IoT technologies, this system comes with lower investment costs and higher rate of returns ... a built-in chip module developed by ZTE also makes remote control and strategy customisation feasible."
