China Mobile HK's TD-LTE network component ‘deployed’

25 Sep 2012

ZTE, one of the two vendors contracted to roll out dual-mode TDD/FDD LTE infrastructure for China Mobile Hong Kong, says that it has now deployed TDD components of the 4G network, which was launched commercially in FDD-only mode in April. In July China Mobile Hong Kong awarded Ericsson and ZTE contracts to expand the capacity and coverage of its 4G network by deploying LTE-TDD (TD-LTE) technology to augment its existing FDD-based LTE platform, aiming for dual-mode coverage of over 70% of the territory, and with commercial TDD/FDD LTE services expected ‘by the end of the year’ once devices supporting both modes were sufficiently available. ZTE says the project marks the first dual-mode LTE network in the Asia-Pacific region and the first commercial TD-LTE network in Hong Kong.
