Huawei Opens TD-LTE Interoperability Labs

Huawei has established open TD-LTE IOT (Interoperability Testing) labs in Xi'an and Shenzhen to enhance collaboration with chipset, device and application partners. The open IOT labs will focus on LTE solutions for voice, multi-mode roaming and multi-mode smartphones in collaboration with industry partners to promote the maturity and commercialization of the TD-LTE industry.

The IOT lab in Xi'an is capable of conducting interoperability testing between chipsets and network systems, devices and network systems. It can also perform tests between multiple systems, including GSM/WCDMA/CDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE TDD/FDD and using mainstream TD-LTE bands (1.9, 2.3, 2.6 and 3.5GHz). The lab's device test environment can support tests on devices from five different manufacturers simultaneously.

The Shenzhen IOT lab focuses end-to-end authentication and verifying network performance with different technologies, applications and solutions. Voice, video, LCS (Location Services) and other end-to-end solutions are tested at the Shenzhen IOT lab.

In April, Huawei and Intel established a joint IOT lab in Beijing to promote the development of the TD-LTE ecosystem.
