Huawei, today announced that it has assisted China Mobile Communications Corporation (CMCC), the world’ s leading telecom operator, launched the world’ s first TD-LTE/SAE trial network enabled by Huawei’ s E2E solution. The network, which offers a more than 10 times faster download data rate than existing 3G networks, will serve the entire 2010 Shanghai World Expo Park and some key pavilions.
Construction of the network faced challenges due to the more than 70 million visitors expected throughout the Expo and the complex coverage area that includes grass lands, rivers, roads and high density buildings. To address these challenges, Huawei’ s industry-leading E2E TD-LTE/SAE solution provides high-quality, high-speed, large capacity and low latency coverage. With this technology, visitors to the Expo will have access to a variety of mobile broadband services, including high definition (HD) video transmission, HD video conference, HD video monitoring, HD video-on-demand (VOD) and HD live broadcasting.
Li Changzhu, Vice President of China, Huawei, said: “This TD-LTE/SAE network is one of the most exciting innovations to be showcased during the Expo. Visitors from around the world will enjoy the unparalleled services offered by China Mobile’ s TD-LTE network. This milestone illustrates Huawei’ s commitment to support operators around the world in delivering truly mobile media experiences to consumers.”
As a major investor in TD-LTE/SAE technology and contributor in the development of its standardization, Huawei believes that the common development of TD-LTE and LTE FDD facilitates the efficient use of limited spectrum resources to meet performance and cost requirements of mobile broadband.
