Alcatel-Lucent and Sequans are working together on LTE solutions for operators of TD-LTE networks in Asia and Europe who are planning to offer services at 2.6GHz. The first result of this collaboration in response to this significant demand will be a Sequans 2.6GHz USB dongle to be used in operator trials in 2010.

"Through this partnership, we are exhibiting our commitment to creating a vibrant LTE ecosystem and to supporting operator goals of demonstrating the value of TD-LTE in delivering advanced services to end users," said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. "Alcatel-Lucent is an LTE technology leader, already actively involved in some of the most significant LTE deployment projects announced to date and we are pleased to work with them."

Alcatel-Lucent was previously selected by China Mobile to deploy China Mobile's demonstration network at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, beginning of May, using Sequans TD-LTE chips and USB dongles at 2.3GHz.

"We are committed to working closely with operators in Asia and Europe to support their LTE strategies," said Doug Wolff, Alcatel-Lucent 4G/LTE Solutions VP. "Our collaboration with Sequans, a truly innovative and accomplished 4G semiconductor supplier, will yield valuable TD-LTE solutions."
