BEIJING, CHINA: ST-Ericsson and Nokia are developing pioneering TD-LTE demonstration devices for China Mobile.
At the Shanghai Expo, Nokia and ST-Ericsson demonstrated video streaming and other multimedia services on a TD-LTE Nokia Booklet containing ST- Ericsson's M700 TD-LTE modem. ST-Ericsson's LTE modems, which can download data at speeds of up to 100 Mbps, enable mobile subscribers to enjoy high-definition video streaming, video conferencing, online gaming, rapid file transfers and other demanding multimedia services.
China Mobile is trialing TD-LTE. Globally the technology is referred to as LTE TDD, which has a wide interest from operators around the world.
"Although LTE is still in its infancy, this sophisticated technology has the potential to bring a raft of compelling high-speed multimedia services to hundreds of millions of consumers all over the world," said Heikki Koivu, VP, TD-SCDMA Business Team, Nokia. "Our co-operation with ST- Ericsson will enable us to demonstrate LTE capable devices and experiences as TD-LTE is developing towards commercial maturity"
"After driving development of both LTE and TD-based mobile technology for several years we are now ready to supply market-leading TD-LTE solutions," said Pascal Langlois, senior VP, chief sales and marketing officer of ST-Ericsson. "Our co-operation with Nokia, the world's number one mobile phone supplier, will strengthen our ability to support mobile operators deploying LTE."
