Nokia Siemens Networks supports landmark TD-LTE video call
Collaborates with industry partners to conduct live TD-LTE demo between Shanghai and Taipei
"This is a landmark achievement," said 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," said 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."
