China Mobile has selected Ericsson to build a TD-LTE trial network in the city of Shenzhen. The approval of the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) follows the successful completion of interoperability tests of Ericsson's TD-LTE network equipment with multiple chipset manufacturers, including ST-Ericsson and Qualcomm.

Ericsson will provide its end-to-end TD-LTE solution, which includes RBS 6000 multi-standard base station and its Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network; operations support systems software and professional services.

  • Last month, Nokia Siemens Networks confirmed that it has been selected to participate in China Mobile's large scale TD-LTE trial. Specifically, Nokia Siemens Networks will offer its commercial 2.3GHz/2.6GHz TD-LTE equipment, professional services and management software to conduct the major field trial in Hangzhou.

  • Alcatel-Lucent also confirmed that China Mobile had selected it to participate in a TD-LTE trial network covering Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Xiamen. This qualification follows successful completion of various interoperability tests which started from January 2010 as required by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information (MIIT) and China Mobile.
