Motorola’s extensive expertise in LTE commercialisation, TDD technologies experience and strong global R&D networks bringing TD-LTE trials closer to market reality in China
Home & Networks Mobility today announced successful completion of its joint Over-the-Air (OTA) trial with operators as part of the collaborative Time Division Duplex Long-Term Evolution (TD-LTE) commercialisation.
All trial results have been submitted to the LTE/System Architecture Evolution (SAE) Trial Initiative (LSTI).
In addition to the collaborative trials with operators, Motorola is engaged with the TD-LTE trials initiated by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) as part of its efforts to develop a globally competitive TD-LTE industry.
“Motorola is committed to broadband and 4G developments, and supports both TD-LTE and Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) LTE,” said Dr. Mohammad Akhtar, vice president and general manager, Home and Networks Mobility, Motorola China. “The development milestone we’re announcing today shows that Motorola remains on track to come to market early with field-proven, end-to-end LTE solutions to support TDD and FDD deployments.”
Motorola’s success in these trials and competency in TD-LTE has been built upon its commercialised Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) solutions and a number of other LTE successes.
Equipment involved in these trials is based on Motorola’s second-generation OFDM products including Motorola’s Base Band Unit (BBU) that supports TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and WiMAX, and features a Remote Radio Unit (RRU) that supports 2×2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO).
“LTE is the next big technology in wireless networking and incorporates several key technologies such as smart antenna, all IP and OFDM to enable operators to deliver rich, high bandwidth, multimedia services,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, corporate vice president, Software Operations and WBAS Development, Home and Networks Mobility, Motorola.
