ZTE claims a breakthrough in 5G research
posted by Maxwell R. / Apr 18, 2015, 11:31 PM
The research is still underway, but the MUSA algorithm provided a 200% improvement in the overload, which is a crucial in handling the explosion of the “Internet of Things” era.
ZTE calls this Pre5G because it uses existing 4G/LTE equipment, but provides much lower latency, and higher throughput. Also, 5G as a standard has not been defined yet. Moreover, ZTE says the user experience can benefit from MUSA much sooner than any expected commercial rollout of 5G, which is at best, five years away.
“The Pre5G solution will help operators exponentially enhance the access rate and overall network capacity by leveraging existing resources in the next 3-to-5 years. Before standardization of 5G technologies, this solution can effectively mitigate the challenges of data traffic surge, and help operators seize market opportunities and achieve better business development,” according to ZTE chief scientist Xiang Jiying.
While we know ZTE in the US primarily for its smartphones, the company is also one of the largest telecom switchgear manufacturers in the world, competing with Nokia, Ericsson, and Huawei. All of these companies are jockeying to play a leading role in the development and definition of the 5th generation of wireless technology.

Many areas of the world just even got 3G. 5G is underway.

They would jump straight to 5G. Not a problem.

This is ridiculous, I live in quite a big town in the UK and it is still stuck on 2g. Why can't these C**** concentrate on getting the rest of the country up to speed before advancing the rest?

Here in the states a lot of the times regulations and townships block it, really weird. It took our company 4yrs one time to get 4G in an area because they would only let us put the tower in like 3 spots that kept getting blocked, till finally they approved it.
