in News, China Mobile, Ericsson, LTE

Ericsson has been selected by China Mobile to deploy TD-LTE trial network in China. With the approval of the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), Ericsson will build trial network in the city of Shenzhen.

The approval by MIIT follows the successful completion of interoperability tests of Ericsson's TD-LTE network equipment with multiple chipset manufacturers. As part of its efforts to further develop the global ecosystem, Ericsson is proactively conducting interoperability tests with leading international players such as ST-Ericsson and Qualcomm.

"China Mobile has always been a formidable force in driving the evolution of telecommunications technologies. As a longtime strategic partner to China Mobile, Ericsson will fully support our customer in its tremendous endeavor to make TD-LTE a reality in the foreseeable future. Tens of millions of users, not only in China but also around the world, will benefit from the new and better services enabled by the superior TD-LTE technology, and we are thrilled to be part of this initiative," Mats H Olsson, President of Ericsson China & North East Asia

Ericsson will provide the end-to-end TD-LTE solution, which includes its latest multi-standard base station, RBS 6000 and its commercially proven Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network; operations support systems software and professional services. In July 2010, Ericsson demonstrated extremely high-speed multimedia applications enabled by its TD-LTE solution in Shanghai, China. And in February this year, Ericsson made TD-LTE voice call over its LTE/EPC network in Barcelona, Spain.
