Finnish hardware vendor Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has claimed that it is the first company to successfully demonstrate services using the Time Division Duplex version of Long Term Evolution (TD-LTE) technology in India. The company has announced that it made the country’s first TD-LTE call at its Bengaluru R&D facility, and during the test call, made by COO of local cellco Aircel Gurdeep Singh, NSN demonstrated high definition video streaming and three-way videoconferencing. The tests used TD-LTE dongles provided by Samsung in combination with NSN’s Flexi Multiradio Base Station and Evolved Packet Core – which comprises Flexi NS (Network Server) and Flexi NG (Network Gateway) – and standard-compliant software. ‘This is an important milestone in building the TD-LTE ecosystem in India,’ said Urs Pennanen, head of NSN’s Indian unit, adding, ‘TD-LTE over the Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum is important for the country, as it will allow operators to offer voice and data to the masses. We are ready to collaborate with partners to accelerate our progress toward a comprehensive deployment of TD-LTE in India.’
