German mobile network operator E-Plus has announced a TD-LTE field test in Germany in co-operation with China Mobile and ZTE. The field test, set to launch in Q1 2011, will use the 2.6 GHz frequencies E-Plus purchased in the mobile spectrum auction in May 2010. China Mobile, which has considerable experience operating TDD networks, is supporting the test with technical know-how. ZTE will provide base stations based on the SDR platform, which offer an integrated LTE FDD/TD-LTE solution.
