ZTE Launches the Industry’s First PC-based CPT for LTE Networks
ZTE has launched what it says is the industry’s first personal computer-based capacity planning tool (CPT) for LTE networks, utilizing a concept to overcome long-standing limitations in capacity planning technology.
The 3GPP protocol-based CPT is tailored for LTE networks, and incorporates four technology patents. With a set of system-modeling and simulation features developed in reference to data from real networks, the CPT provides operators with a tool for commercial LTE network deployments.
Compared with traditional solutions, ZTE says that its CPT offers a more than 20% improvement in accuracy and an efficiency advantage of more than 80%.
Wang Shouchen, vice president of ZTE said “ZTE’s newly released CPT is based on an innovative concept, and provides a one-stop and flexible capacity planning capability, greatly reducing the difficulty of LTE network planning and improving our customers’ operating efficiency,”. He further added “The tool’s planning accuracy has vastly improved compared with traditional solutions. In the near future, ZTE will also launch other versions based on different network scenarios to meet the customer’s needs.”
