Mortorola Inc.'s Motorola Solutions business has passed a 2.3GHz full feature set lab trial requested by the China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). The feat marks an important development under the MIIT initiative to accelerate TD-LTE commercialization. Completed at MIIT's TD-LTE lab, the trial measured key TD-LTE functionalities; RF performance; operation, administration and management (OAM) capabilities; interface conformity; hardware readiness and backhaul capability.

As part of the trial, Motorola also demonstrated the transmit mode 7 (TM7) capabilitiesan implementation of the beam-forming technique that enables operators using TDD spectrum to maximize coverage, capability and QoS.

Mohammad Akhtar, corporate VP and general manager, Motorola Solutions in Asia Pacific, noted that "The success of TD-LTE deployment in China, bolstered by the growing cooperation of an ecosystem, bodes well for its adoption in other regions of the world and Motorola's ability to help operators launch early commercial TD-LTE networks."

The TD-LTE lab trial used Motorola's latest commercial LTE hardware platform, including the industry's first TD-LTE capable 4Tx/8Rx radio head and Motorola's fourth-generation, LTE-Advanced-capable WBR 700 LTE baseband. Motorola's TD-LTE 4Tx/8Rx radio head supports advanced multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) schemes, including multi-user (MU) MIMO and beam-forming to provide unprecedented capability and coverage for TD-LTE operators, while the WBR 700 offers up to four times the capability of the average LTE baseband currently on the market in a 1U rack with the most compact size in the industry.
