  14. 14. Spectrum for LTE deployments  An operator may introduce LTE in ‘new’ bands where it is easier to deploy 10 MHz or 20 MHz carriers for maximum benefits of using LTE  2.6 GHz band (IMT Extension band)  Digital Dividend spectrum 700, 800 MHz  or in re-farmed existing mobile bands e.g. 450, 850, 900, 1700, AWS, 1800, 1900, 2100 MHz  Eventually LTE may be deployed in all of these bands – and others later  2.6 GHz (for capacity) and DD 700/800 MHz (wider coverage, improved in-building) is a good combination  LTE offers a choice of carrier bandwidths: 1.4 MHz to 20 MHz; the widest bandwidth will be needed for the highest speeds Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Slide no. 14/19

  16. 16. The LTE market includes TDD as well as FDD LTE TDD is positioned as the next evolution of the TD-SCDMA family and a natural progression  From 3GPP standards perspective: commonality with FDD  From vendor perspective: increasing use of software defined radio techniques  From operator perspective: spectrum availability, flexible base stations LTE TDD trials now Timescales established for prototype, dual-mode and multimode devices  In-service estimated as 2010-2011  LTE TDD is being showcased by many leading players at the World Expo, Shanghai and vicinities from May 2010  Clearwire (USA) has requested 3GPP to standardize LTE TDD for operation in 2496 – 2690 MHz and on August 4, 2010 announced plans for technology trials to test both LTE TDD and LTE FDD  Softbank Mobile (Japan) is reported to be considering LTE TDD in 2.5 GHz spectrum it owns Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Slide no. 16/19
  17. 17. LTE TDD is maturing towards commercialization LTE TDD is being showcased by China Mobile and leading industry partners at the World Expo 2010, Shanghai .The large-scale trial network covers the whole 5.28 square-km site, outdoors and in 9 pavilions and 2 demonstration centers. Several products supporting the trial network are launched or planned including WWAN cards, routers and dongles. Key milestones achieved in the trial include:  Demonstration of LTE TDD HD video telephone in single 20 MHz spectrum with peak DL speeds of up to 80 Mbps  Demonstration of VOD, video communication, and other high-speed mobile broadband apps  Demonstration of 24-channel video streaming  Mobile HD video conferencing between the trial network and another location  Inter-Operability Test of multiple LTE TDD USB dongles in a single mobile network cell  China Mobile will deploy further trial LTE TDD networks in 3 major cities beginning Q3 2010. The deployment in each city will be > 100 base stations. In addition, smaller trial networks will be deployed in Beijing and Shanghai  China Mobile is also partnering with foreign operators to establish trial LTE TDD networks overseas, e.g.Taiwan India is a key market for LTE TDD following the BWA spectrum auction. Qualcomm through its JV with local partners is committed to LTE TDD and anticipates commercial service from 2011. Some other BWA spectrum winners are finalizing their technology choice, so more winners may also choose LTE TDD. Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Slide no. 17/19
