Motorola says that it has successfully completed the Phase I TD LTE field trials with China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). This over the air (OTA) TD LTE trial included key functionality, performance and mobility test cases in a multi sector, multi site environment that lays a solid foundation for large scale TD LTE deployment.
Motorola is now ready to begin Phase II TD-LTE field trials with increased focus on applications and quality of service (QoS) in Beijing.
The milestone follows the recently announced TD-LTE key functionalities test initiated by the TD-LTE working group, which was set up by MIIT in June 2009 with China's three telecom operators and other key industry partners.
"Thanks to our valued collaboration with partners, TD-LTE is well on its way to realizing its potential as a promising next-generation wireless technology that enables a compelling media mobility lifestyle," said Dr. Mohammad Akhtar, corporate vice president and general manager, Motorola Networks business in Asia Pacific. "We are very pleased to have reached yet another milestone with the successful completion of Phase I TD-LTE field trials and are looking forward to upcoming trial results. The announcement today is a testament to Motorola's commitment to TDD spectrum operators around the world and once again demonstrates the maturity of our TD-LTE solution."
