Motorola speeds up TD-LTE commercialisation with success in trials

Aims to deliver enhanced networks to meet the future needs of TDD spectrum operators in China and around the world

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola Home & Networks Mobility has disclosed the completion of its joint Over-the-Air (OTA) trial with operators as part of the collaborative Time Division Duplex Long-Term Evolution (TD-LTE) commercialisation. The company claimed that this trial enables the company to deliver enhanced networks to meet the future needs of TDD spectrum operators in China and around the world.

The company’s trial achievements include: download throughput up to 70 megabits per second (Mbps) in a 20 megahertz (MHz) bandwidth channel; mobility and hand-over with live applications; and Multi-User Equipment (UE) testing under one sector.

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) to develop TD-LTE industry. In addition, it is also working with others in the industry to promote the development of TD-LTE in China and around the world, the company said.

Mohammad Akhtar, vice president and general manager of home and networks mobility at Motorola China, said: “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 commercialisation as demonstrated by these trials.

“The development milestone we’re announcing today shows that Motorola remains on track to come to market early with field-proven, end-to-end LTE solutions to support TDD and FDD deployments. It represents our latest efforts to fulfill Motorola’s commitment to support operators around the world in delivering true media mobility experiences to consumers at home and on the go.”

Equipment involved in these trials is based on the company’s second-generation OFDM products including its Base Band Unit (BBU) that supports TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and WiMAX, and features a Remote Radio Unit (RRU) that supports 2×2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO).
