First Call made over TD-LTE Trial Network in Shanghai

The first call over a trial TD-LTE network deployed in Shanghai has been successfully completed by Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile. The trial is another step towards the delivery of high-speed mobile broadband to subscribers in China.

Alcatel-Lucent’s end-to-end 4G LTE solution in Shanghai is a vital element of the large-scale TD-LTE trial formed by the China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and China Mobile, covering six major cities in China, to showcase the advantages of TD-LTE technology in delivering high-speed applications and services to millions of customers.

The network includes the high-tech park of Zhangjiang and financial district of Lujiazui, which China Mobile and the Shanghai Government want to make a leading demonstration zone of TD-LTE technology.

“The first call takes us a step closer in delivering a high-quality network that will provide faster wireless services and applications to the people of Shanghai,” said Rajeev Singh-Molares, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities for Asia-Pacific.

Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile further enhanced their relationship in April of this year by announcing a joint research program to pioneer developments in next generation mobile communications, including further co-development of Alcatel-Lucent’s lightRadioÔ solution.
