Sequans and Huawei to work on TD-LTE trial for China Mobile

Sequans Communications and Huawei announced that they will
begin a large scale trial in Shenzhen. This trial will be conducted on China
Mobile’s TD-LTE network deployed by Huawei, using devices based on Sequans’
TD-LTE chipset.


China Mobile has selected equipment vendors to deploy
TD-LTE trial networks in six major cities in China and Huawei has been selected
for the city of Shenzhen. Huawei is responsible for building and deploying
Shenzhen’s TD-LTE network.


Sequans recently became eligible to participate in the
China Mobile trials when its LTE chip technology won official approval from
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) after passing a
battery of tests.


“Working side by side with Huawei on
interoperability over the last two years, we now have UE chipset technology
that is fully ready to support the important large scale trials of China Mobile
as well as future commercial deployments,” said Georges Karam, CEO,


Recently, Sequans Communications announced that it
the 4G chip inside the new “mini Egg” pocket router available from
Korea Telecom.


The device, about the size of an egg, enables users to
easily add 4G connectivity to smartphones and tablets via a tiny
mobile router that fits in a pocket. IGI Mobile, a Korean maker of wireless
broadband communications devices, manufactured the device.
