Bruxelles explique être parvenu à la conclusion que l'opération ne poserait pas de problème de concurrence compte tenu des parts de marchés cumulées limitées d'ALNS Allemagne et de la division de services locale de l'équipementier télécoms chinois
There seems to be a benefit in TD-LTE. TD-LTE transmissions travel in both directions on the same frequency band, a methodology formally known as "unpaired spectrum." It is distinct from "paired spectrum," where two frequencies are allocated, one for the transmit channel and the other for the receive channel (formally called "Frequency Division"). "Time Division" means the receive channel and the transmit channel take turns (i.e. divide the time between them) on the same frequency band. The time divisions are asymmetric, meaning that more time-slots are allocated to data going from the tower to the phone than from the phone to the tower. The usage patterns of the future (fewer phone calls, more Internet) are asymmetric in this manner.
