Long Term Evolution (LTE) gets a big boost forward with the establishment of Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd's R&D lab in Japan Otemachi, Tokyo, Japan.

The lab will enable its R&D team in Japan to work with local operators to test LTE systems before delivery. The lab will also serve as an incubator for LTE technologies and as a training facility for the implementation and commercialization of the next-generation wireless technology.

Testing services include peak throughput, latency, multi-users, QoS, handover, element-level management system operation and self-organizing network. The lab's downlink data rate at application layer can reach 140Mbit/s through a single remote radio unit with 20MHz bandwidth. It is also equipped with Huawei's fourth-generation DBS3900 base station and the latest versions of commercial LTE software and test terminals. Facilities include a unified service node and unified gateway, and will enable Huawei to develop evolved packet core solutions for LTE as well as other access networks, and build on its Home Subscriber Server and Application Server solutions, and wireless network management system.

Yan Lida, managing director of Huawei Japan said: "We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers in Japan the latest in LTE testing technology, and at greater convenience, as they partner with Huawei to ready their networks for commercial deployment of LTE solutions. By providing the best environment for innovation and training, we hope that we can contribute to our Japanese customers' R&D efforts in this exciting field, and ultimately, to their continued business success."

Operators and industry partners can now enhance their understanding of LTE and experience the potential of Huawei's latest LTE and System Architecture Evolution solutions through the innovation and technology showcase at the LTE lab in Japanthis was only available in Huawei's headquarters in China previously. The establishment of the LTE lab follows the success of the Huawei UMTS Lab in Tokyo, Japan, which was set up in 2006.
