China Mobile signed a deal to use the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communications tester from Rohde & Schwarz for TD-LTE testing.
The TD-LTE cooperation with the Chinese mobile radio network operator is to continue on a long-term basis.
“The Chinese market is very important for Rohde & Schwarz. We are proud to drive TD-LTE together with China Mobile, and expect the cooperation to be highly beneficial for both parties,” said Christian Leicher, president and COO of Rohde & Schwarz.
The R&S CMW500 from Rohde & Schwarz, a leading manufacturer of LTE test and measurement equipment, is a reliable, extremely fast and highly flexible wideband radio communications tester that supports all common wireless communications standards in a single box. It is the ideal solution for all phases in the development and production of chipsets and mobile wireless devices as well as for lab tests by network operators.
The China Mobile Research Institute performs measurements both in the lab and under real-world conditions. Since the beginning of 2011, it has already implemented TD-LTE test networks in six major cities: Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Xiamen. Commercial operation is scheduled to start in 2012.
