April 26, 2010 – According to Indian Express, US’ Motorola wants to test the next level (4G) that could pour cold water on the Governmentâ€™s plan to raise Rs 35,000 crore from selling radio frequency for the existing version.
Motorola is already engaged in LTE trial activity with other operators in North America, Europe and Asia, and operates an LTE trial network and testing lab in Swindon, UK. China Mobile Communications Corporation (CMCC) has already selected Motorola as the primary TD-LTE solution partner to provide indoor coverage for all major pavilions at the World Expo 2010 Shanghai China. KDDI has selected Motorola as a key vendor to help develop and implement its nationwide LTE network.
According to Indian Express report, the company is likely to approach the Department of Telecom (DoT) for trial spectrum, Subhendu Mohanty, a senior executive with Networks Mobility Business, Motorola India.
When asked whether Motorola is talking to operators, Mohanty said: We would like to have trial with the players but the technology can also be tested on our own systems.
Motorola is one of the few vendors in the industry that has expertise in, has committed to, and is investing in FDD-LTE and TD-LTE as well as WiMAX. Together these technologies offer a complementary set of options to deliver the 4G solutions that todayâ€™s operators will need to meet the needs of data hungry users and make a profit in the process.
Motorola is leveraging its OFDM expertise and years of success in WiMAX in the development of its LTE solution. Motorolaâ€™s first commercial LTE deployments will be based on its third-generation WiMAX products that have been proven and field-hardened and for which algorithms have been optimized to deliver the best performance in a real-world environment.
Motorolaâ€™s LTE solution is comprised of its OFDM broadband platform and a selection of radio options that include multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and smart antennas. It also features Motorolaâ€™s award winning advanced self-organizing network (SON) solution. Motorola’s WBR 700 Series LTE eNodeB offers flexible deployment options with frame based-mounted radios, remote radio heads and tower top radios to support a wide variety of LTE deployment scenarios across numerous spectrum bands to meet the needs of the global market.
Also included in Motorolaâ€™s LTE portfolio are its evolved packet core (EPC) solution – the Wireless Broadband Core (WBC) 700 portfolio, backhaul, network management solutions, video solutions that monetize LTE investment, and a complete portfolio of professional services. The Motorola WBC 700 is comprised of Motorolaâ€™s award winning mobility management entity (MME), packet and serving gateways (P-GW and S-GW), and a policy and charging rules function server (PCRF).
