Zong 4G It further consolidates its position as leader of Pakistan’s technological innovation and has successfully implemented Pakistan’s first Smart 8T8R in cooperation with Huawei Technologies. Implementation was done on CMPak’s (Zong’s) existing 4T4R network, upgraded to Smart 8T8R in Lahore. This technological advancement has improved the user experience many times by increasing the capacity 1.8 times.
The continuous development of mobile web applications, high definition (HD) video streaming, and online gaming services poses challenges to the MBB network in Pakistan. To meet this continuous growth in demand and ensure a smooth 5G evolution, the Smart 8T8R provides the right solution.
The Smart 8T8R solution includes software defined antennas (SDAs), FDD dual-band RRUs and Huawei’s innovative algorithms. With one-off hardware deployment, it allows for optional software upgrades, capacity increase for 4G and seamless upgrade to 5G, giving operators a better option to set up FDD networks with NR seamless evolution. This solution will promote the rapid NR evolution of the FDD network and set a new standard for future MBB network comparison.
“CMPak provides outstanding service experience through leading technologies,” said Mr. Wang Hua, Chairman and CEO of Zong 4G. “The use of the Smart 8T8R improves the user experience and protects future network investments, as well as diversifying network and service development options.”
“CMPak will continue to explore and implement more technological breakthroughs to create 5G-ready networks and provide better user experience through innovative technological advances,” he added.
The success of this distribution reflects Zong’s strong innovation capabilities and is an important part of the technical strategy of high-quality 5G-ready networking in Pakistan.
Over the past two years, 4G users in Pakistan have grown exponentially, with only Zong seeing a 100% increase in the number of 4G users. In a country like Pakistan, where MBB’s massive use is for entertainment, the data needs of 4G users are constantly growing to meet Zong 4G’s robust, proactive measures. In particular, the launch of the Smart 8T8R will pave the way for future technologies, including 5G, in Pakistan.
