SoftBank recently deployed ZTE's Pre5G Massive MIMO 2.0 (antenna 64T64R) to replace some Macro sites at the Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome, for Japan's baseball championship.
Faced with high traffic, the MIMO 2.0 solution guaranteed proper communication for the whole championship and served as a comprehensive solution to the coverage, capacity, and user experience problems, helping SoftBank build a smart and high-performance gym network, said ZTE.
ZTE said it deployed onsite communications equipment, applied customized solutions such as simulation, onsite surveys, and optimization of core parameters (Massive MIMO antenna beamforming), and deployed Pre5G Massive MIMO 2.0 products to help SoftBank build a smart and high-performance gym.
According to statistics during the championship, the Pre5G Massive MIMO 2.0 (antenna 64T64R) accounted for 80% of the total traffic volume in SoftBank’s network. Statistics show that after the Pre5G Massive MIMO 2.0 products were deployed, the downlink aggregate traffic increased by 451.5%, the uplink aggregate traffic rose by 759.5%, and the average user uplink rate went up by 42.88%.
ZTE claims that the excellent overall performance of the Massive MIMO 2.0 network at the Yahuoku! Dome demonstrated its superb performance in high traffic scenarios.
