News for 4G LTE Networks in China

China Telecommunications Corporation Chairman Mr Wang Tianyi phone today at the Fair, said China Telecom is to increase the technical trial LTE network, but is constrained due to the frequency of the carrier core resources, 4G LTE network integration is inevitable.


Wang said China Telecom’s 4G network planning, using FDD standard in large-scale, while the city will use the TDD system to absorb excess traffic.


“In the technology and the demand for two-wheel drive, the entire industry will be faced with the upgrade, which bears more opportunities, China Telecom will work with the industry chain partners to promote industrial upgrading, hoping CDMA industry chain can go a smooth transition to 4G,” Mr Wang said.


After the news, TD-LTE network for the mainland three telecom operators will be optional, but operators can then apply for building LTE-FDD network. As response to this message, Mr Wang Hong Kong in March this year had publicly said that “China Telecom hopes to obtain FDD-LTE license, if the government departments do not issue licenses FDD-LTE, China Mobile China Telecom would consider renting 4G network.”



However, Mr Wang said the networking standard of today’s position for 4G has been very clear that China Telecom to get TD-LTE and LTE-FDD two licenses is a foregone conclusion, the integration of network construction of China Telecom will also become the main mode of 4G networks.


From a global perspective, many carriers who have deployed LTE FDD required symmetrical spectrum resources are very limited, resulting in the expansion of its network stretched, and for both FDD and TDD spectrum owned operators, building an LTE FDD and TD-LTE, converged network that can not only improve and upgrade the existing LTE FDD network performance, you can also make use of TD-LTE spectral characteristics of asymmetric, which help operators take full advantage of all available spectrum resources.


Currently, China Mobile Hong Kong has been achieved in LTE TDD / FDD network integration of commercial operation, the integration of networking has become both FDD and TDD spectrum has major carriers 4G network mode.
