Ericsson has received the Best LTE TDD/FDD Converged Solutions Award under the GTI Award 2013, the inaugural Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) Award program at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, says a press release.
Ericsson's LTE TDD/FDD converged network solution, based on RBS 6000 and in full compliance with 3GPP standards, can maximise the value of spectrum resources for operators with both TDD and FDD spectrum.
By combining the power of both networks, the solution benefits not only the large and growing number of mobile broadband users, but also the ICT industry as a whole. Furthermore, the economies of scale promised by the converged networks will drive the transformation of other industries such as government, entertainment, transportation, education, healthcare and energy.
During the 2013 Mobile World Congress, Ericsson is supporting China Mobile in demonstrating the industry's most complete multi-vendor, multi-frequency range, end-to-end, converged ecosystem by providing a commercially verified LTE TDD/FDD converged network and making the world's first dual mode HD VoLTE call based on multi-mode chipsets, another step forward towards the globalisation of TD-LTE.
The GTI Award program aims to acknowledge the success of industry players in the TD-LTE ecosystem and encourage the industry to develop innovative products and solutions that address the opportunities and challenges faced by GTI operators.
