Nokia Siemens Networks recently facilitated a high resolution live video call between TD-LTE devices connected to separate TD-LTE networks.
The call occurred between China Mobile’s pre-commercial TD-LTE network for the Shanghai World Expo and National Chiao Tung University’s (NCTU) TD-LTE trial network in Taipei, set up by Nokia Siemens Networks.
“This is a landmark achievement,” says Chung-Yu Wu, the president of NCTU. “It is a showcase for collaboration between the telecommunications industries of mainland China and Taiwan. Trials such as these go a long way in furthering TD-LTE interests in the region – and what better platform to show it off than Shanghai Expo?"
Nokia Siemens Networks recently built NCTU’s TD-LTE trial network supporting the university’s research program in Taipei. The company provided all the necessary TD-LTE equipment including core network and multiple base stations, along with the corresponding services. Nokia Siemens Networks is also providing TD-LTE indoor coverage for the Finland Pavilion during the World Expo in Shanghai.
“This showcase underpins our commitment to fully support TD-LTE commercialization and demonstrates our regional and global momentum in this area,” says Ding Weiqing, head of China Mobile Customer Business Team at Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are well prepared to participate in various TD-LTE trials and drive commercial TD-LTE network deployments within this year.”
