China Mobile Hong Kong and Ericsson Demonstrate LTE-A FDD+TDD 3CC
Carrier Aggregation in a Live Network to Enhance the Customer Experience

CMHK's converged LTE-A FDD/TDD network achieved 272 Mbps download speeds

• China Mobile Hong Kong successfully demonstrates the carrier aggregation of LTE-Advanced FDD+TDD three-component carriers (3CC) in partnership with Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), achieving a peak download speed of 272 Mbps in a FDD+TDD 3CC LTE-Advanced network.

• China Mobile Hong Kong’s LTE-Advanced FDD/TDD carrier aggregation effectively maximizes spectral efficiency, enhances app coverage and user experience.

(Hong Kong‧3 August 2015)China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) launched the world’s first LTE FDD / TD-LTE converged network in 2012. Building on this achievement, in partnership with Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), was a successful live demonstration of the advanced technology of LTE-A FDD+TDD three-component carriers (3CC) carrier aggregation. The two companies demonstrated the applications available for a converged LTE-A FDD/TDD 4G combined network, and achieved a peak download speed of 272 Mbps in a FDD+TDD 3CC LTE-A network.

The demonstration was performed on China Mobile Hong Kong’s network, using Ericsson FDD+TDD carrier aggregation technology and TM500 network testers supplied by Cobham Wireless. In the demonstration, one 15 MHz LTE FDD carrier in the 2.6 GHz band was aggregated with two TD-LTE carriers in the 2.3 GHz band (one 20 MHz and one 10 MHz carrier) via carrier aggregation technology. It reveals that with the launches of FDD+TDD 3CC LTE-A network, China Mobile Hong Kong will provide a smooth and stable network experience to all its customers.

Dr. Ma Zibin, Director and Vice President, China Mobile Hong Kong, said: “We have just achieved another milestone for the converged LTE FDD/TD-LTE network and see it as a huge development for the future needs of the services supplied by telecoms to their customers. China Mobile Hong Kong pioneered the world’s first LTE FDD / TD-LTE converged network in 2012 and we continue our commitment by demonstrating the advantages of LTE-A FDD+TDD 3CC carrier aggregation in a live network. We believe this technology will become a milestone in the development of telecoms networks.”

China Mobile Hong Kong is committed to integrating FDD and TDD carrier aggregation networks, providing exceptional telecoms services and upgraded network speeds that will meet the future needs of the industry and consumers. China Mobile Hong Kong will soon officially open a TDD 2CC LTE-A network in Hong Kong, and will launch a FDD+TDD 2CC LTE-A network and 3CC LTE-A network next year. With the launches of 2CC and 3CC LTE-A networks, China Mobile Hong Kong will provide a smooth and stable network experience to all its customers.
