MUNICH, Germany, June 30, 2011 -


During the Sino-Germany Economic and Technology Cooperation
Forum, China Mobile Research Institute, the R&D division of
China Mobile, and Rohde & Schwarz announced the signing of a
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for collaborating on the research
of TD-LTE testing technology and test system development.

The MoU highlights the cooperation on joint research in TD-LTE
testing technology and test instrument development to speed up the
global roll-out of TD-LTE technology.

TD-LTE, the TDD version of LTE standard which has converged
development with FDD LTE, enables high-speed mobile Internet
access. According to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association,
TD-LTE will obtain a significant share in the worldwide LTE market.
TD-LTE technology has gained increasing support in Asia Pacific as
well as in Europe and America with the backing of more than 70
companies from across the mobile ecosystem.

China Mobile, the leading operator in TD-LTE network and
terminal testing, has made great strides in the promotion of TD-LTE
test systems development. In the field of terminal testing, China
Mobile is leading the project group TD-LTE Work Items (WI) within
the Global Certification Forum (GCF) for conformance testing,
covering protocol, RF and RRM. In order to set up end-to-end
testing solutions and simulate end-user experience, China Mobile is
cooperating with other operators and test system vendors to develop
network-simulator independent operating test (IOT) systems.

Rohde & Schwarz has been providing testing solutions to
mobile network providers, test houses, chipset and user equipment
manufacturers for many years. Rohde & Schwarz offers RF
conformance tests, RRM testing, PQA, signalling conformance tests,
protocol and call box solutions in TD-LTE.

The joint research effort by China Mobile Research Institute and
Rohde & Schwarz will ensure the establishment of an end-to-end
TD-LTE testing environment, resulting in robust networks and high
quality terminals.
