Huawei Wins LTE TDD Contract in Poland

Aero2, a wholesale mobile broadband operator in Poland, has selected Huawei to deploy a commercial LTE TDD network. The contract covers Huawei's end-to-end LTE TDD/EPC (Evolved Packet Core) solution. The network will become operational in early 2011. Huawei said this represents the world's first commercial LTE TDD deployment.

Aero 2 has 900 MHz and 2.5 GHz spectrum licenses.

"This milestone demonstrates that LTE TDD technology is already mature, stable and reliable for large-scale deployment," said Ying Weimin, President of LTE Network, Huawei. "Based on Huawei's LTE unified platform supporting both LTE FDD and LTE TDD, we are confident that the network will contribute to Areo2's success in the mobile broadband era."
