Motorola shows off Chinese LTE

Motorola shows off TD-LTE for China Mobile

China is keen to promote the development a TD version of the next-generation mobile LTE standard to provide a development path for its current TD-SCDMA 3G standard. China Mobile is one of the biggest mobile operators in the world.

Motorola is running a van through the streets of Geneva, where the ITU event is being held, so that visitors can experience the standard at work in a mobile environment that includes hand-offs between basestations. Applications on show will include HD video streaming on the downlink and uplink, VoIP, video conferencing and high-speed Internet browsing.

Motorola will also be demonstrating a 100Mbit/s downlink on the China Mobile stand.

Bruce Brda, senior vice president and general manager, wireless networks, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility, said: “This demonstrates the maturity of our TD-LTE solutions running effectively in a challenging real-life environment. We are seeing great interest in TD-LTE, because it enables operators with TDD spectrum to deliver increased capacity and a lower cost per bit.”

The tour will use Motorola’s second-generation OFDM-based products and a set of core networks running the latest specifications, software and related application servers. Motorola’s TD-LTE solution includes a base controller unit that supports TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and WiMAX, and a remote radio unit that supports WiMAX and LTE.

Motorola has already completed joint over-the-air trials with operators and is also involved with the TD-LTE trials initiated by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
