China Mobile (CHL) plans to build its TD network in eight Chinese cities after the Spring Festival holiday.
The eight cities are Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, Tianjin, Qinhuangdao, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Xiamen.
China Mobile plans to build 8602 TD outdoor base stations and 3772 set indoor distribution systems in these eight cities before October this year, of which 2059 outdoor base stations and 1015 indoor distribution systems will be built in Beijing. Upon completion, the network will cover the inner area of the Fifth Ring Road and may be extended to the outside of the Fifth Ring Road by 1-5 kilometers, covering a total of 900 square kilometers.
China Mobile has already begun to build its TD-SCDMA experimental network in Beijing, and part of that will be integrated into this new network.
