ZTE 'Unisite+' helps accelerate co-site deployment of 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G with fewer devices

One of the things ZTE had planned to show during MWC 2020 is a more 'Capable', 'Compact' and 'Faster' 5G RAN Product Portfolio for the Networks of the Future. While we missed out on that, here is once such product called 'Unisite+'

ZTE describes this as:

Driven by the idea of maximizing RATs, bands and capacity with as few devices as possible, ZTE has launched UniSite+, the upgraded version of its UniSite solution. The A + P design enables replacing all the antennas and adding a new 5G AAU all by just one single radio unit. The active part of the solution offers flexible options between 64TR and 32TR over N78, N41, and N79 bands, and the passive part offers 14 ports and supports all sub-3GHz frequency bands. 

The solution employs two tri-band UBR (Ultra Broadband Radio) products, the industry’s first 1.8G+2.1G+2.6G product, and the 700M+800M+900M with the industry’s largest capacity and smallest form factor. 

By deploying the UniSite+ solution, the operators can easily realize "1 + 2 = 7," the concept of using one antenna and two radio units to support 7-band all-RAT deployment. Therefore, it is the simplest site solution in the industry which reduces the number of required devices by more than 70%.

In addition to radio simplification, the latest baseband technology is also now at another superb level. ZTE has launched the industry's first all-RAT baseband board, which supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G in one board to facilitate “site-intervention-free” for 5G evolution.

While the radio sites get greatly simplified, ZTE has also reduced the power consumption of the equipment by 30% with new-generation chipsets and high-efficiency power amplifiers. 

To meet the requirements of 5G transmission, the UniSite+ solution also includes the latest microwave products with a transmission capacity up to 25 Gbps and improved latency performance. In addition, the solution can work with the ordinary frequency band microwave of a 3rd-party solution to form a Multiband group, thereby providing the best MPLS/SDN network upgrade solution to maximize the return on investment of operators.

Here are couple of videos in the playlist, one recent one about Unisite+ and the other is about Unisite from last year that provides background to this.
