ZTE says that it has completed the industry's first interoperability test (IOT) between TD LTE terminals and GSM UMTS CDMA EV DO networks.
This is the first IOT between a multi-mode TD-LTE terminal and non TD-LTE networks. The success of the test is expected to promote the convergence of TD-LTE and existing networks, and speed up TD-LTE network deployments.
"The test shows that devices for TD-LTE networks are close to market availability, and that ZTE's extensive TD-LTE expertise ensures that our existing 2G and 3G networks are able to handle traffic from TD devices," said Mr. Wang Shouchen, general manager of ZTE TD products.
As of April 2011, ZTE had deployed TD-LTE trials for 25 operators in 15 countries.
