According to Zhou Jianming, general manager for China Mobile's (CHL) Technology Department, the company has been jointly implementing tests with relevant operators to set up TD-SCDMA long term evolution model networks in 2010.
Zhou says that China Mobile hopes to expand the cooperation range with industry stakeholders while investing in research and industrialization to jointly perfect the industry chain. The company will develop equipment norms for TD-LTE products to ensure the full use of TD-SCDMA resources and resolve the problems that are related to the application of TD-LTE.
Supported by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the National Development and Reform Commission, TD-LTE has become a major focus of the future development of broadband mobile communications. Referring to the detailed development strategy in the TD-SCDMA sector in the future, Zhou says that China Mobile will first increase its investment and develop more unique services and then actively extend it to its customer group.
He adds that it is important to enhance interactions with operators and manufacturers to effectively shorten the period from the research of new technologies to the application of these technologies around China.
