Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by China Mobile to deploy a TD-LTE trial network at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai running from May 1-Oct 31.

 

The deployment will be the first in the world and follows Alcatel-Lucent’s first TD-LTE call on a third party terminal achieved earlier this year.

 

The agreement was signed through Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell.

 

With the explosion of mobile data traffic that is underway today, service providers need to increase their wireless network capacity and to transform toward end-to-end IP networks in order to support a wide array of new revenue generating services, while also driving down the operational cost of supporting the growing volume mobile broadband services, the company said in a statement.
