In yet another strong affirmation of Nokia Solutions and Networks’ TD-LTE capabilities, the company, in collaboration with China Mobile (CMCC), became the first to deliver TD-LTE services at one of the world’s showcase racing events in Shanghai, the commercial capital of China. With NSN’s technical expertise, its Global Services portfolio, and its high-capacity Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Stations, the operator was able to ensure uninterrupted service availability throughout the event.
From the communications perspective, it was critical to create a network capable of addressing the uplink traffic expected to be generated in the 3-day event attended by 200,000 people. NSN, as the sole provider of CMCC’s network for the race, stepped up to the challenge and set another benchmark by deploying the world’s first live TD-LTE network for an event of this scale.
The TD-LTE network was implemented with NSN’s award-winning Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Stations , along with NSN Smart Scheduler for optimizing cell capacity and network efficiency. In fact, our Smart Scheduler is a very important element in the mix of things in terms of managing mass events. It plays a crucial role in managing uplink interference, signaling capacity, control channel dimensioning and load balancing – factors that are at the heart of ensuring seamless communications in the face of extremely high data traffic.
Markus Borchert, president of NSN Greater China Region, summed up NSN’s efforts: “CMCC’s TD-LTE coverage at this marquee event is a perfect example of how mobile operators can offer memorable moments to their customers. This high-octane race is not only challenging for the world’s finest drivers but also for operators – it is actually one of the most dynamic and high traffic load events. We take great pride in implementing this 4G network, proven to perform best under high traffic loads.”
