ZTE Showcases 1 Gbps Smartphone Download Speed With the R&S CMWflexx System From Rohde & Schwarz

R&S CMWflexx system

ZTE, a leading global mobile device maker, will demonstrate the world’s first smartphone with download speeds reaching up to 1 Gbps at Mobile World Congress Americas 2017 in San Francisco. Utilizing the R&S CMWflexx test platform from Rohde & Schwarz, on-site visitors will witness a successful test of download speeds reaching up to 1 Gbps on the ZTE Gigabit Phone. 

The ZTE Gigabit Phone, powered by the Qualcomm®Snapdragon™ 835 mobile platform with an integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, utilizes a combination of carrier aggregation, 4x4 MIMO antenna technology, and 256QAM modulation to achieve LTE download speeds that are up to ten times faster than first generation LTE devices. It is the cornerstone of ZTE, introducing gigabit data rates to 4G networks and providing worldwide carriers with pre-5G solutions.

The revolutionary gigabit phone technology will be showcased using the R&S CMWflexx system from Rohde & Schwarz. The R&S CMWflexx system measures data throughput exceeding 1 Gbps in the downlink by combining three downlink carriers, two of which use 4X4 MIMO and the third 2X2 MIMO. All three carriers use 256QAM modulation. The R&S CMWflexx test solution offers fast and accurate results and is sufficiently flexible to support a number of other key applications such as Cat M1 (eMTC), Cat NB1 (NB-IoT), LAA, 8X4 MIMO DL MIMO and shown data throughput up to 2 Gbps.

“The R&S CMWflexx is based on the R&S CMW500, the world’s most widely used T&M platform for development, production and service of mobile phones and devices. It meets all of the requirements for a state-of-the-art wireless communication tester, and has the flexibility to meet the testing needs of high-speed gigabit devices,” said Mike Thorpe, Product Manager Wireless Device Test at Rohde & Schwarz USA, Inc. “We are looking forward to seeing the ZTE Gigabit Phone reach unprecedented download speeds at MWC Americas."

"We are proud to introduce the world’s first smartphone with download speeds up to 1 Gbps. This device and others to come will change the way people communicate and live their daily lives,” said Jeff Yee, VP, Product Marketing & Strategy, ZTE Mobile Devices. "Using the R&S CMW500 test platform, we are excited to showcase our Gigabit Phone and our expertise in 5G and pre-5G mobile broadband solutions at Mobile World Congress Americas."

To see the live demo of the Gigabit Phone, visit the ZTE booth, located in Hall South Stand S.342, at Mobile World Congress Americas 2017, to be held in San Francisco from Sept. 12 to 14, 2017.
