Aircel Successfully Conducts World’s first GSM/UMTS/LTE-TDD Trial in IndiaAircel and Huawei have jointly conducted the world’s first GSM/UMTS/LTE-TDD trial on Aircel’s existing GSM/UMTS network in India using devices that is based on Qualcomm Incorporated’s MDM9600 multimode chipset.

The success of this trial is a key milestone for the development of LTE-TDD ecosystem.

The trial was conducted using Huawei’s convergent end-to-end system and Qualcomm’s MDM9600 multimode chipset on Aircel’s existing GSM/UMTS network.

During this trial Huawei and Qualcomm jointly executed Inter-RAT (Inter-Radio Access Technology related cases covering multiple live handover scenarios across GSM/UMTS/LTE technologies.

Even other high speed data services were demonstrated, including video streaming via YouTube, video on demand and high definition video surveillance, which met the key performance indicators (KPIs) expected from an LTE-TDD system.

This convergent GSM/UMTS/LTE-TDD end-to-end solution is based on Huawei’s SingleRAN, SingleCore network and multimode devices.

The trial used Huawei E392, which is the world’s first LTE-TDD/FDD/UMTS/GSM/CDMA multi-mode USB dongle based on Qualcomm’s MDM9600 multimode chipset.

The trial covered end-to-end interoperability of services & applications, radio access and core network. Following this milestone, Huawei is now ready to deploy commercial LTE-TDD network for GSM/UMTS mobile operators in order to serve the ever-increasing demand for mobile broadband in India.

A Happy Geek and a Network Research Engineer with a really cool day job…
