    Q4: US, Europe, Africa and ... China ALU to cover 13 cities with a population of 150 MILLION PEOPLE!!!!

    Alcatel-Lucent won a contract to deliver “the largest share of basestations” for TD-LTE trial network. Under the contract, Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, Alcatel-Lucent’s China subsidiary, will supply about 3,000 basestations in Shanghai, Nanjing and Qingdao in early 2013.

    With more than 700 million subscribers, China Mobile has been aggressively pursuing an expanded TD-LTE trial network. By the end of 2012, the trial network will deploy 20,000 basestations covering 13 cities with a combined population of 150 million people.

    China Mobile is in a hurry to roll out TD-LTE networks as smartphone demand soars. China is the world’s largest smartphone market, accounting for one-quarter of global smartphone shipments, according to market researcher Gartner.

    China also leads the global market for mobile data services. "The new TD-LTE network deployed by Alcatel-Lucent will increase the speeds, capacity and quality of China Mobile's network,” Alcatel-Lucent claimed. It will also give China Mobile the ability to operate with a smaller footprint and lower power consumption, the supplier added.

    Compared to China's TD-SCDMA spec, TD-LTE is designed to offer full IP capability; faster response time and lower latency, with peak downlink data rates of 100 Mbit/s.
