ZTE Corporation (0763.HK/000063.SZ), a leading international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile Internet, today announced that its 5G FWA and MBB series has reached one million shipments worldwide and officially unveiled the 4th generation ZTE 5G FWA and MBB family at Mobile World Congress 2022 (MWC 2022). The series which includes 5G CPE MC888 indoor series, 5G CPE MC889 outdoor series and the new generation 5G portable MiFi MU5120, are generally developed for indoor, outdoor and travel scenarios, and adopted the world-leading Snapdragon X65 and X62 5G . Modem-RF platforms.
In the 5G era, ZTE has always been committed to meeting diversified 5G data terminal scenarios for users around the world. In 2019, ZTE launched MC801, its first 5G CPE product, and successively launched Gen 2 and Gen 3 indoor 5G CPE products in 2020 and 2021. The new FWA & MBB family series is further improved and updated. upgraded on the basis of previous generations, forming diversified 5G data terminal scenarios, suitable for personal, home, travel and office use, among others.
The MC888 series for indoor scenarios includes two models, MC888 and MC888 Ultra. The latter, equipped with Qualcomm Gen 2 fixed wireless access platform with Snapdragon X65 5G modem-RF platform and the latest WiFi 6E technical standards with a peak rate of 6000Mbps, fully supports the mmWave-Sub6NR CA and 3GPP R16 technical standards. It adopts Smart Antenna Array 3.0 with antenna gain up to 10dBi, enabling stable and full 5G signal reception even with weak signals. Nevertheless, the MC888 Ultra continuously dissipates heat by adopting penetrating self-ventilation technology and downward permeable air duct design. As a result, ultra-long and stable high-speed operation is ensured even under high-power conditions. Remarkably, the MC888 Ultra also supports one-touch NFC connection, allowing NFC-enabled Android smartphones to connect to these routers with just one touch, without the cumbersome process of entering passwords.
Meanwhile, the standard MC888 model with the Qualcomm X62 platform, which supports WiFi 6 with a peak rate of 3600Mbps, can be connected by up to 32 users simultaneously. Notably, this model uses the same antenna technology as the MC888 Ultra, and the built-in high-gain antenna ensures strong signal reception for users.
For outdoor scenarios, as a world leader in communication, ZTE launched MC889 and MC889 Pro, compatible with mmWave, Sub-6 5G and 4G LTE networks, designed to solve the problem of low penetration of mmWave network signals and Sub-6 and place higher demands on temperature, environment, and signal reception capability. IP67 and IP65 industrial grade dustproof and waterproof, the series can operate normally in temperatures between minus 40 and 60 degrees, making the series a truly weatherproof outdoor CPE product. The MC889 Pro adopts super gain antenna technology capable of 11dBi, which greatly improves signal reception for terminal users.
Based on the indoor and outdoor 5G CPE, ZTE has also developed a next-generation portable 5G MiFi product MU5120, which 32 devices simultaneously can access stably. The device adopts Qualcomm Gen 2 fixed wireless access platform with Snapdragon X62 5G modem-RF platform and low power consumption WiFi 6 scheme and features a 10,000mAh battery with long battery life. more than 16 hours. Meanwhile, MU5120 also supports 18W reverse fast charging and one-key NFC function, providing more functional convenient experience for users.
Besides the above-mentioned five new products, ZTE also announced the flagship MC888 at MWC 2022, the first 5G WiFi7 CPE with the most powerful configurations across the world, which will provide the best experience in the industry and be available in the market in the fourth quarter of this year.
In addition, ZTE also showcased its excellent communication performance. With the new Qualcomm SD X65 chip, the next-generation 5G mmWave CPE has improved the transmission rate of high-power 5G mmWave CPE to more than 10Gbps, enabling the wireless transmission rate of terminal devices to surpass computer hardware. The new CPE will support dual link between Sub-6G and mmWave. Through new heat conduction and heat dissipation materials, time-sharing AC technology and next-generation micro-controlled power algorithm, stronger heat dissipation and signal coverage are realized. It can be widely used in fields such as big data, IOT and IOV.
“For many years, Qualcomm Technologies and ZTE have collaborated in the development of mobile broadband products, with some of ZTE’s most powerful 5G solutions being fixed wireless access CPEs for homes and offices based on the 5G platform. Qualcomm Gen 1 fixed wireless access,” Gautam said. Sheoran, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “Congratulations to ZTE for unveiling next-generation indoor and outdoor 5G CPE products, as well as mobile routers powered by Qualcomm Gen 2 fixed wireless access platform with Snapdragon X65 and X62 modem-RF platforms. 5G. We look forward to helping ZTE bring optimized performance, coverage and user experiences to more homes and offices with its next generation of products.
“Based on the ‘1+2+N’ full-scenario intelligent ecological system, ZTE mobile devices are gradually creating a full-scenario intelligent lifestyle, and now occupy the largest global 5G CPE market share. For the Internet of Everything (IOE), the integration of all scenarios of “1+2+N” cannot be achieved without the help of “5G+” formed by 5G MBB devices,” said Luo Wei, vice- President of ZTE Corporation. , GM of Product Center, ZTE Devices.” The 4th generation of ZTE 5G FWA & MBB family will bring more advanced 5G experience to businesses and consumers around the world through remarkable technological innovation, which will make the technological life more accessible in the future.”
