U Mobile and ZTE Announce Strategic Partnership To Build a 100 Mbps Wireless Network in Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, 15th March 2011 – U Mobile and ZTE have signed an agreement to bring 100 Mbps wireless network across key cities in Malaysia. The agreement is a two pronged development which will see U Mobile extending its 42 Mbps mobile network in Central, Negeri Sembilan and the Northern region by the 2nd half of this year and the installation of LTE platforms which has the potential to achieve 100 Mbps across Malaysia soon.

The signing ceremony was graced with a traditional twist as Yang Berhormat Dato' Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, Minister of Information, Communication and Culture of Malaysia and H.E Mr. Chai Xi, the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to Malaysia, were treated to a symbolic cultural exchange presentation when they witnessed Dr. Kaizad Heerjee, Chief Executive Officer of U Mobile and Mr. Zheng Bang, President of Asia-Pacific region of ZTE Corporation exchange signatures on a traditional Chinese Xuan Paper, using traditional Chinese brushes today – an act that affirms the collaboration between two parties.

In view of this strategic partnership, U Mobile is seen to be taking the way forward in providing the latest wireless technology for the country. Within the next 12 months, one should see an upgrade of U Mobile's 42 Mbps to 84 Mbps capability. A user's internet experience is likely to be ten times faster than the current rate.

What is even more exciting is that ZTE has also recently completed a successful pilot run of the Long Term Evolution (LTE), a technology that is known to support 100 Mbps. The readiness of this technology simply defines that once the spectrum is made available and device is readily available for the public, access to 100 Mbps is simply a stone throw away – it is no longer a far-fetched dream to browse, download and connect on the net in speedy moments.

The large-scale deployment of this high-speed wireless network is yet another proactive pioneering effort from U Mobile to further support the Government's national agenda themed the Economic Transformation Program ETP, 10th and 11th Malaysia Plans, of which constant improvement of broadband access is one of the key growth drivers.

"We are very pleased to have ZTE as our strategic partner to enhance and extend our 3G high speed network from the Central Region to other major cities and areas across Malaysia," said Dr Kaizad Heerjee, Chief Executive Officer of U Mobile. He added: "Together with ZTE, we aim to showcase several new innovations and deliver the benefits of the highest speed mobile broadband service to our customers. The introduction of this mobile broadband network is a strategic impetus to our ambition of becoming a major player in Malaysia's fast-growing mobile data market."

Mr. Zheng Bang President of Asia-Pacific region of ZTE Corporation , stated that "Malaysia is an important market for ZTE in the Asia-Pacific region. ZTE is committed to working with U Mobile to offer the fastest speed mobile broadband service in Malaysia and make U Mobile a showcase through our state-of-the-art technology and solutions, as well as excellent customer services and engineering capabilities."

U Mobile subscribers will soon enjoy and experience ease of files transfer and streaming of high quality video to mobile devices and laptop, among others with fastest broadband service at a cost effective rate.

中移动TD-LTE开工:5城市建1000基站

4G和准4G网络已经成为今年移动行业的热点,在美国的移动运营商中,WiMAX和LTE网络已经步入到商用阶段,各家手机厂商也开始以4G网络支持作为手机在主要卖点。在国内,由中国移动负责的TD-LTE同样以自主知识产权而备受关注,首批TD-LTE规模技术试验网已经开始建设,预计今年9月份机会完工。

新浪科技3月28日消息,知情人士详细透露了即将开始的中国移动TD-LTE规模技术试验网的规划情况,据悉,最早动工的建网城市为5个,5个设备商各承建一个,每个城市建200个基站;而之所以为何最早动工的建网城市不是之前说的7个,而是5个,与中国移动无关,与相关系统设备厂商在外场设备测试中的表现有关。

最早开工建网城市缘何7个变5个

此前的上周末,业内已披露,经工信部核准,中国移动即将启动TD-LTE规模技术试验网建设,包括华为、阿朗、诺西、中兴、大唐等在内的5个厂商经工信部核准,率先通过准入测试。对此,有业内解读为5个城市将成为中国移动首批建设TD-LTE规模技术试验网的城市。

不过,知情人士予以澄清,其向新浪科技透露,中国移动首批TD-LTE规模技术试验网是7个,去年底曾规划为6个,今年年初增加了北京,在北京部署的是一个TD-LTE演示网,没有其它城市的规模大。

据透露,此次最早动工的5个城市并非今年TD-LTE建网城市的全部,这主要是因为迄今为止,只有5个系统厂商通过了工信部组织的系统设备检测,拿到了入网许可证,一旦有其它厂商拿到了入网许可证,剩下的两个城市北京和厦门将随时指定厂商开工。

每个城市规划200个基站

关于各城市TD-LTE建设的规模,目前众说纷纭。

知情人士向新浪科技表示,按照规划,每个城市由一个系统设备商承建,摒弃了过去TD-SCDMA技术试验网每个城市由两个系统设备商同时承建的弊端。

并且,每个城市过去规划不一,例如杭州规划200个基站,广州、深圳各规划220个基站的建设,但最终都统一为200个基站。

各厂商负责的城市试验网具体为:华为承建深圳试验网,阿朗在上海承建、诺西在杭州承建、中兴在广州承建、大唐在南京承建。

今年9月基本完成建网工作

按照对外口径,工信部和中国移动为本次TD-LTE规模技术试验网规划的测试周期为一年半,但知情人士向新浪科技表示,实际要求进度远比该时间表快。

在今年年初中国移动召开的2011年中国会议上,TD-LTE也被列入2011年工作重点,中国移动董事长王建宙当时在会议上强调,中国移动将继续推动TD-LTE的发展,加快形成商业能力,支持TD-LTE走向国际。

按照规划,在9月份,首批开工的城市试验网要完成网络建设工作,剩下的只是网络优化和测试问题。

据悉,这是因为中国移动非常看重TD-LTE,希望越早上马越好,这也就是为何只有5个系统设备商拿到入网许可证后就立刻开工的原因。

中国移动董事长王建宙之前在巴塞罗那世界移动通信大会接受新浪科技专访时也曾表示,TD-LTE在一定时间内规划要覆盖5000万人。

今年两会期间,出席全国政协会议的王建宙又在其提案中表示,我国借鉴第一、二、三代移动通信发展的经验教训,统一认识,抢抓机遇,尽早进行TD-LTE规划布局。由此可见,中国移动对于TD-LTE建设时间希望越快越好。

WiMAX僅存據點之一再淪陷,俄羅斯Yota轉支持LTE
在WiMAX甫推出之際,除了北美Sprints以外,包括日本、台灣、韓國、印度以及俄羅斯等地亦紛紛響應,而俄羅斯Yota也常常成為WiMAX Forum拿來舉例的好榜樣,不過隨著LTE可預期的快速竄起,Intel本身的跳票等原因,WiMAX的4G夢似乎越走越不順遂。而一度成為模範生的俄羅斯Yota電信在近日與同數俄羅斯電信業者的Beeline、Megafon、MTS、Rostelekom簽署協議,將統一以WiMAX LTE 技術作為未來電信技術的發展方針,並且預計在2014年俄羅斯的LTE將涵蓋180個都市,服務七千萬人人口。

看來這下WiMAX的版圖又要再次縮減,而且印度的BSNL也傳出開始考慮LTE,日本方面的LTE WiMAX發展亦不順遂,相較幾年前WiMAX Forum歡天喜地宣佈正式商用化的情景,真是不勝歔欷。
