Motorola to Include Recently Auctioned LTE Spectrum Bands in First Commercial Release

When Motorola releases its first commercial products for Long-Term Evolution (LTE) next year it will include products for the 700MHz and 2.6GHz spectrum bands. Motorola also announced that its LTE solution will support the future LTE Time Division Duplex (TDD) variant to meet the need of operators with a TDD spectrum holding. Motorola is engaged in LTE trials with operators in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

Motorola's LTE base station solution is comprised of its common platform site controller unit that will be shared between WiMAX 802.16e and LTE plus a variety of radio head solutions to meet specific customer requirements. The portfolio includes frame based-mounted radios, remote radio heads and tower top radios to support a wide variety of LTE deployment scenarios across newly available spectrum as well as existing GSM, UMTS and CDMA spectrum. Motorola's flexible eNode B architecture allows many spectrum bands to be supported with limited development investment.


"We believe deploying LTE in the 700 MHz band is mandatory to meet the needs of wireless carriers in the U.S. market as well as a number of other countries globally," said Darren McQueen, Motorola vice president, Wireless Broadband Access Technologies. "In addition, there is a clear demand for LTE in 2.6GHz spectrum band to meet the needs of GSM carriers that have already secured the spectrum in the global market."
"Leveraging our WiMAX TDD infrastructure, we have designed a common LTE platform that is capable of both LTE Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and TDD, offering global operators the simplicity and economies of scale across markets," McQueen said.
