[Shenzhen, China, July 4, 2012]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced it had established open TD-LTE IOT (Interoperability Testing) labs in Xi’an and Shenzhen. The labs were established to cooperate with chipset, device and application partners for the purpose of creating an open and win-win LTE ecosystem while driving end-to-end TD-LTE maturation and commercialization.
With the continuous deployment of new commercial network technologies and a rapidly growing number of TD-LTE users, chipset and device makers are faced with rapid market developments. In April of this year, Huawei and Intel established a joint IOT lab in Beijing to promote the development of the TD-LTE ecosystem. The establishment of open IOT labs is another approach for this.
The open IOT labs will focus on LTE solutions for voice, multi-mode roaming and multi-mode smartphones in collaboration with industry partners to promote the maturity and commercialization of the TD-LTE industry.
The IOT lab in Xi’an is capable of conducting interoperability testing between chipsets and network systems, devices and network systems. It can also perform tests between multiple systems, including GSM/WCDMA/CDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE TDD/FDD and using mainstream TD-LTE bands (1.9, 2.3, 2.6 and 3.5GHz). The lab’s device test environment can support tests on devices from five different manufacturers simultaneously.
The Shenzhen IOT lab focuses end-to-end authentication and verifying network performance with different technologies, applications and solutions. Voice, video, LCS (Location Services) and other end-to-end solutions are tested at the Shenzhen IOT lab.
Huawei is committed to the values of openness and cooperation to promote the development of the global ICT industry. Huawei’s IOT labs are built to advance the development of the industry through cooperation between industry partners like device and chipset manufacturers, test equipment companies and other companies in the value chain. Huawei welcomes global industry partners to work in Huawei’s IOT lab to accelerate the maturity of end-to-end TD-LTE solutions and promote the healthy development of the whole industry chain.
