Altair Chips Gets Certified in Chinese LTE
MIIT's approval of Altair's chipsets is based both in internal testing it conducted as well as on the results of extensive interoperability and field performance trials that Altair held with China Mobile over the last year.
Altair is one of the only TDD/FDD-LTE chipset vendors qualified by the Chinese regulator, providing significant benefits above competing technologies by allowing subscriber devices to operate equally efficiently both in China, which is based on a TDD-LTE scheme, as well as in FDD-LTE-based markets, such as the U.S. and Europe.
“This official stamp of approval from the Chinese regulatory authorities follows more than a year of extensive testing conducted with MIIT and China Mobile. While Altair is very excited to have successfully passed MIIT's qualification testing, this is also an exciting development for the market, as our TDD/FDD-LTE capable technology enables commercial devices to function equally effectively on China Mobile’s network as well as on networks around the world,” said Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development at Altair Semiconductor. "Having already established leadership positions in numerous other Asia-Pacific countries, we look forward to extending our footprint in the Chinese market and to building on our partnership with China Mobile."
