With the approval of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China (MIIT), Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has become one of the first telecommunications equipment vendors to participate in the large-scale TD-LTE trial with China Mobile. 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. Nokia Siemens Networks has already completed both 2.3 and 2.6GHz outdoor, and 2.3GHz indoor, single-system testing with TD-LTE. The company is one of the first global vendors to be selected for the large-scale TD-LTE field trials with China Mobile. “Nokia Siemens Networks has built a complete TD-LTE business in China, integrating procurement, production, testing and maintenance with its Hangzhou R&D Center at the center of this value chain,” said Markus Borchert, head of Greater China customer operations at Nokia Siemens Networks. “The approval by MIIT confirms our long-term support for TD-LTE and our leadership driving the global ecosystem for unpaired frequency bands.”
In addition to its market-leading Single RAN Advanced radio equipment, Nokia Siemens Networks will provide network planning and network optimization services to ensure sustained network quality and performance. Configuration, monitoring and optimization for thisproject will be based on the company’s Network Management System, NetAct.
