ZTE Adopts LitePoint Solutions for LTE Smartphone Production Test
Leading Equipment Provider Delivers Optimized Cellular and Connectivity Test Systems for the Production of Innovative New Smartphones.
Sunnyvale, California – August 26, 2014 – LitePoint® a leading provider of wireless test solutions, announced today that ZTE Corporation has adopted LitePoint’s cellular and connectivity test solutions for calibrating and verifying their latest 4G smartphones in production.
Gary Wang, general manager of LitePoint China, said, “ZTE required a complete solution to test their new LTE smartphones. This includes not only the latest in cellular testing for 4G, but complete coverage for legacy 3G and 2G standards as well. To assure a high quality user experience, they wanted technologies that could test all of the connectivity standards in the phone, including the new high-bandwidth Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac. To address expanding customer demand for ZTE’s products, high-volume test throughput was a must. So we delivered a high-efficiency smartphone test platform consisting of the LitePoint IQxstream® cellular tester combined with LitePoint’s IQxel-M™ connectivity tester to cover the full range of their smartphone wireless standards.”
The combination of the IQxstream and IQxel-M gives ZTE a flexible and high-performance platform to address today’s and tomorrow’s wireless technologies. It also allows ZTE to optimize yield, load-balance their production lines and minimize their total cost-of-test allowing continued success in LTE. With the launch of new LTE multiband smartphones in 2014, ZTE forecasts that 4G devices will account for 40% of total terminals shipments in 2014. Benefiting from the availability of new innovative products and cooperation with partners, ZTE expects to continue their strong performance, especially in the smart handset market.
