Motorola Passes Key TD-LTE Functionality Trial

Motorola is the first company to successfully complete and pass the time-division duplex long-term evolution (TD-LTE) key functionalities test initiated by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). The testing measures high-bandwidth network capacity and a number of key TD-LTE features, demonstrating another milestone of collaborative industry efforts on TD-LTE commercialization. This significant advancement also reaffirms Motorola's commitment to deliver next-generation networks to meet the future needs of TDD spectrum operators in China and around the world.

Motorola said the trial demonstrated:

  • High performance in system equipment platforms such as reaching a peak throughput in excess of 100 Mbps

  • Key TD-LTE functionality, including hand-over, multi-antenna, quality of service (QoS), power control, etc.

  • Adoption of third-party user equipment (UE) test to guarantee standard compliance.

Motorola is now ready to begin multi-site/multi-UE testing through the TD-LTE field trials.
  • MIIT established a TD-LTE working group in June 2009 with China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, as well as other key industry partners including system manufacturers, chipset manufacturers and terminal equipment manufacturers, taking a leadership role to provide a stronger driving force for the TD-LTE industry chain.

  • Motorola hastwo R&D centers in China. Motorola's Wireless Broadband Access Solutions (WBAS) Hangzhou Center and Wideband Base Transceiver Systems (WBTS) China Center have been working with Chinese operators for many years and can provide valuable insights on local needs.
