JDSU, a provider of Long Term Evolution (LTE) test solutions, has announced it has been selected to support the LTE network deployment of Danish telecoms operator TDC. JDSU’s accessLTE solution provides end-to-end, real-time monitoring and troubleshooting of its LTE network, ensuring quality of service while managing growing volumes of high-bandwidth traffic and increased network complexity. TDC is already using JDSU service assurance solutions to manage mobile data across earlier generation networks. ‘We have a long-standing business relationship with JDSU and its test solutions,’ noted Jess Ibsen, CTO at TDC, adding: ‘Our trust in JDSU is based on its proven reputation as an innovator in LTE testing and measurement. JDSU’s tools are the right ones to help us keep our customers satisfied from the moment our LTE network goes live.’ According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, TDC was awarded two blocks of 20MHz spectrum in the 2.5GHz band, suitable for the provision of LTE services, in May 2010. The following November TDC selected Ericsson to supply and manage its nationwide LTE network. Under the contract, the vendor will roll out a complete 4G/LTE solution – including radio access and core network equipment – as well as the full scope of managed services. Deployment of the network in the country’s largest cities began immediately after the contract was announced.
