NSN Demos TD-LTE with China Mobile

At this week's GSMA Mobile Asia Congress in Hong Kong, Nokia Siemens Networks and China Mobile jointly demonstrated a TD-LTE femtocell. The demonstration showed a live streaming video downlink application achieving throughputs which exceed the typical xDSL speed currently possible via residential broadband connections.

"Successful TD-LTE commercial deployments warrant efficient, seamless and uniform coverage" said Tommi Uitto, Head of Wireless Access Product Management at Nokia Siemens Networks. "That's why it is imperative to think beyond macro deployments to quality of coverage inside homes and offices. While we have proven that we are ready for large scale outdoor TD-LTE deployments as early as 2010, our femtocell solution takes care of maintaining superior coverage indoors."
