Motorola has announced the successful completion of its joint Over the Air (OTA) trial with Chinese operators as part of the collaborative Time Division Duplex Long Term Evolution (TD LTE) commercialization. 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's Wireless Broadband Access Solutions (WBAS) Hangzhou team and Wideband Base Transceiver Systems (WBTS) China team have been working with Chinese operators for many years and can provide insights on local needs.
"Motorola is committed to broadband and 4G developments, and supports both TD-LTE and Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) LTE. We've made significant progress in TD-LTE commercialization as demonstrated by these trials," said Dr. Mohammad Akhtar, vice president and general manager, Home and Networks Mobility, Motorola China.
Motorola's success in these trials and competency in TD-LTE has been built upon its commercialized Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) solutions and a number of industry-leading 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 2x2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO).
