ZTE launched the iMacro base station to help operators enhance LTE network coverage in congested urban areas with limited space for site installation, reports Telecompaper.com on July 15, 2015. The new base station, with integrated RFUs (radio frequency unit) and compact, high-performance antennas offers flexible and rapid deployment without any site resources, which effectively makes the deployment alongside urban streets easier. The iMacro base station, which can be pole-mounted or wall-mounted, is suitable for installation on lampposts along urban roads and bus station awnings, and can even be placed on the lamp poles along the roads or building's façade. In the absence of new site resources, the iMacro base station provides intensive coverage in densely-populated areas, effectively enhancing the quality and capacity of network coverage. iMacro can be connected to external devices through a single power cable and an optical fiber that is connected to the BBU, and multiple iMacro base stations are connected to one remote BBU, allowing for flexible and rapid network deployment, and significantly reducing deployment costs.
