MTS CDMA EVDO upgrade to enable 14.7 Mbps wireless broadband

Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd (SSTL) has awarded ZTE Corporation CDMA EV-DO upgrade contract. SSTL operates its telecom services across India under the brand MTS and has over 11 million wireless customers.  SSTL has also awarded its CDMA expansion contracts and EV-DO upgrade contracts for 10 circles to ZTE. The EV-DO Rev.B Phase2 commercial launch will commence in Rajasthan.

The commercial use of EV-DO Rev.B technology will greatly enhance the existing service speeds of mobile broadband for SSTL. Compared to EV-DO Rev.B Phase1, the Phase2 technology can further enhance the BTS cell capacity, spectrum efficiency and peak rate, achieving high speed rate as high as 4.9 Mbps in single frequency carrier and 14.7 Mbps in three frequency carriers bundle. At the same time, ZTE’s solution based on SDR Uni-RAN technology can realize the system upgrade by just changing the channel card and software, which would protect the investment of SSTL to the fullest.

ZTE and SSTL have been strategic partners since 2008. This win underlines that ZTE’s CDMA technology, engineering services and other integrated capabilities have been fully recognized by SSTL. ZTE is a global leader in CDMA technology. By Mar. 2011, ZTE’s CDMA base station capacity was raised up to 300 million lines and the cumulative shipments of CDMA base  stations has been more than 310,000. With a market share of 32.5% share of the CDMA market, ZTE is the global leader in the CDMA market. ZTE’s CDMA EV-DO Rev.B has been deployed by 7 operators in China, Indonesia, Morocco, Pakistan, Romania, etc. In CTIA Wireless 2011, ZTE stood out with the first CDMA ultra-compact multi-carrier “ZTE Gecko” base station and was awarded the “”CTIA 2011 emerging technologies award”.
