‘TD-LTE Here and Now’ was the hot ticket during the Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) Summit in Barcelona on February 26, 2013.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ CEO, Rajeev Suri, delivered his keynote speech on the topic and China Daily was quick to follow up on the ‘Evolving stan-dards in telecommuncations’. The newspaper noted that Nokia Siemens Networks was the first foreign vendor of telecoms equipment to gain approval from Chinese authorities to participate in the country’s wide-ranging trials of TD-LTE starting in 2011.
Suri remarked how dramatically the TD-LTE landscape has changed since the 2010 TD-LTE forum hosted by China Mobile and MIIT during the World Expo, when he was the only CEO representing any of the large infrastructure vendors. And now, the question is not whether operators will choose TD-LTE networks or FDD LTE networks, but rather which one to deploy first.
Watch the video of Suri’s speech, where he confirms that the TD-LTE ecosystem is ready – and how Nokia Siemens Networks is contributing to the TD-LTE momentum worldwide. Case in point was the world’s first live TV broadcast via TD-LTE by China Mobile on January 5, 2013, when they transmitted a live video stream of the Xiamen International Marathon. The TD-LTE network was built solely by Nokia Siemens Networks.
In the speech, hear how Nokia Siemens Networks was the innovation force behind TD-LTE. Learn about our Open Lab in Hangzhou and convincing world TD-LTE firsts such as:
* The first TD-LTE Femto cell demo
* The first 3GPP R8 TD-LTE call and hand-over
* The first Taiwan to mainland China TD-LTE live HD
* Five speed records in a row, the latest being 1.6 Gbps in July 2012
* Our most recent innovation: the world’s first TD-LTE and FDD-LTE off-loading and FDD-TDD load balancing solution using our patented base station algorithms. What’s unique is that when both TD and FDD LTE networks are running and you have subscribers with phones and tablets capable of using either network, our base stations will dynamically balance the traffic between the two to ensure that users get the most bandwidth possible and operators get the best use of their expensive spectrum.
