Nokia Siemens Networks trials TD-LTE in Hangzhou and Xiamen

Nokia Siemens Networks announced that it has
successfully been running live TD-LTE (4G) trial networks in Hangzhou and
Xiamen for China Mobile.

The trial networks, operational since May,
demonstrate the promise of TD-LTE to transform the mobile broadband experience
in China. Trial users have been able to enjoy peak download and upload speeds
of up to 100 Mbps along with uninterrupted access to applications such as video
streaming and online HD video conferencing.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks has already finished
testing the core network and is now testing radio access. It is working with
China’s Ministry of Information and Industry Technology (MIIT) on TD-LTE device
testing, and will use devices in the trial, when testing is completed.

“In Zheijang region, we reached a major milestone
earlier this year with 50 million subscribers and can also see the data boom in
the network,” said Zhong Tianhua, general manager of China Mobile Group
Zhejiang. As our long-standing partner, Nokia Siemens Networks fully
understands our aim to improve the capabilities of our network to improve
subscriber experience.”

Nokia Siemens Networks deployed its single RAN advanced
TD-LTE equipment in 2.3GHz and 2.6GHz spectrum. The company’s network
management system, NetAct is providing configuration, monitoring and operations
support system capabilities during the trial. Nokia Siemens Networks is also
providing network planning and optimization services.

“Nokia Siemens Networks has been committed to
developing the TD-LTE ecosystem since its inception. The Motorola Solutions’
acquisition clearly strengthens our market proposition and enables us to
deliver greater value to operators, looking to adopt TD-LTE,” said Markus
Borchert, head of customer operations for Greater China at Nokia Siemens
Networks.
