SHENZHEN, China, February 27, 2019 / PRNewswire / – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications solutions, as well as corporate and consumer technologies for mobile Internet, announced the signing of a protocol on intentions for joint development of a new generation of operator-defined intelligent network RAN (O-RAN) in cooperation with the China Mobile Research Institute. The signing ceremony took place at the World Mobile Congress 2019 in Barcelona.
Under the terms of the protocol of intent, ZTE and the China Mobile Research Institute will conduct joint research and development work on the architecture, interfaces and application scenarios of the intelligent network based on O-RAN.
By signing this document, ZTE and the China Mobile Research Institute confirm their intentions to carry out testing and verification of innovative technical solutions for the large-scale implementation of O-RAN technologies. The signatories are also planning to jointly verify the innovative technologies of the new generation network in various application scenarios, including load balancing on the basis of the radio source and inter-level optimization of services.
In the status of strategic partners, ZTE and China Mobile Research Institute will demonstrate the results of joint development of O-RAN at upcoming exhibitions and conferences, as well as share their accumulated experience with standardization organizations.
The partners have already presented the first joint solution for load balancing based on AI using a consistent O-RAN architecture. The Radio Fingerprint technology, demonstrated as part of the presentation, is able to predict the load on the cellular network, ensuring the timeliness and accuracy of its alignment processes, which makes it possible to improve the quality of customer service.
“The protocol of intent with ZTE is focused on software and hardware development, verification of experimental solutions and empowering future networks,” commented Huang Yuhong, vice president of the China Mobile Research Institute. “The result of this collaboration will be further refinement and optimization of O technologies -RAN, which will provide a solid foundation for simplifying the operational and maintenance processes for wireless networks. “
“This document deepens the long-term collaboration between ZTE and China Mobile. ZTE’s capabilities in creating an intelligent network architecture will significantly contribute to the progress of research and development
