Mobile World Congress: Huawei and Rohde & Schwarz demonstrate HSPA 84Mbps


By Telecom Lead Team: Huawei subsidiary HiSilicon and
test and measurement major Rohde & Schwarz have demonstrated DC (dual
carriers) and MIMO throughput in HSPA.


The Chinese telecom equipment major claims that this
marks the world’s first successful demonstration of 84 Mbps WCDMA signals in
downlink and 23Mbps in uplink transmission.


Both HiSilicon and Rohde & Schwarz are
working together on HiSilicon’s pioneering LTE multi-mode chipset solution
Balong 710 and Rohde & Schwarz’s flexible R&S CMW500
multi-standard conformance test platform to enable the wireless industry to
certify and deploy LTE/WCDMA technology quickly.


Balong 710 is proving to be a great step forward for LTE
and WCDMA. There is a great deal of talk in the industry about accelerating LTE
roadmaps, but in reality there are very few players with a commercially viable
LTE multi-mode chipset solution and HiSilicon is one of these companies.


Similarly, Rohde & Schwarz was the first
supplier on the market with test solutions for LTE, WCDMA and GSM. We are
delighted to be working with them on the ongoing development of their
comprehensive test case package which meets the industry’s needs for thorough
LTE/WCDMA/GSM device testing programs,” said Ai Wei, VP of HiSilicon.


Rohde & Schwarz has approximately 7,400
employees and achieved a net revenue of € 1.3 billion in fiscal year
2009/2010 (July 2009 to June 2010).


China Mobile tests TD-LTE with T&M equipment from Rohde
& Schwarz

Recently, China Mobile uses the Rohde & Schwarz
(R&S) CMW500 in its Research Institute labs to perform RF tests on user
equipment for TD-LTE.


China Mobile plays a leading role in TD-LTE. This Chinese
4G mobile radio standard succeeds TD-SCDMA, the Chinese 3G standard.
