ZTE Corporation launches the first multi-carrier super-mini CDMA base station available in the industry know as Gecko. The innovative Gecko is small in size (measuring 26cm*18cm*5.8cm, lightweight, easy to mount and satisfies operators' networking requirements, such as indoor blind-spot coverage and hot-spot traffic distribution.
The Gecko helps operators make up for any deficiencies, improves network quality, enhances user experience and builds high-efficiency and high-quality CDMA networks.
ZTE’s Gecko base station supports several IP networking modes and achieves access by using various transmission resources (such as MAN, LAN, PON, xDSL and satellite, etc.). Its coverage radius can reach 300 meters, thus meeting high service standards for use in offices, hotels, retail and entertainment outlets, as well as providing high quality indoor 3G data and voice services.
The Gecko, capable of supporting 31 1x users or 64 EV-DO data users, is the first creative product in the industry to support both 1x and EV-DO services simultaneously. In addition, the Gecko base station can be flexibly deployed in conjunction with the current outdoor macro base stations to achieve soft handoff and to enable unified management and operator maintenance.
“The ZTE Gecko base station is small in size yet high in performance, with features such as low costs, quick deployment and full convergence capabilities,” said Ms. Li Jian, General Manager of ZTE CDMA<E Product Line. “The Gecko can help operators to acquire more subscribers and speed-up network construction, thus enhancing the profitability of mobile broadband networks.”
Currently, the commercial trial of ZTE’s Gecko has started in China Telecom’s Sichuan Branch. It will also be exhibited at P&T / EXPO COMM CHINA 2010 in October, 2010.
