MUNICH – The LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI), a unique global collaboration between vendors and operators, has successfully completed and reached the objectives of the TD-LTE (LTE TDD) Proof of Concept (PoC) Milestone 3 and Milestone 4 test phases: Demonstration that the basic LTE/SAE functionality and performance are achievable with pre-standards prototype equipment. Time-Division Duplex (TDD) is the application of time-division multiplexing that separates transmit and receive signals.

For the TD-LTE Proof of Concept M3/M4 testing, LSTI had identified a core set of proof points aligned with the 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project) and NGMN (Next Generation Mobile Networks Alliance) requirements for LTE/SAE. The work of M3/M4 TD-LTE phases consisted of analysis of the 3GPP and NGMN requirements, test methods and configurations, delivery of supporting results from the vendors, and analysis and consolidation of these results by LSTI PoC Work Group. Over 90 measurement campaigns from seven vendors have been consolidated to determine the ability of LTE to bring an enhanced user experience to consumers, and to help operators understand how the technology will function in realistic scenarios.
