Intel partners with Huawei for TD-LTE trials in China

Companies prepare tech for commercial deployment

Intel and Huawei have established a partnership that will focus on testing TD-LTE network technology. The companies will establish a testing lab in China, where engineers will continue to work on interoperability and implementation trials.

The announcement suggests Intel plans to equip its Atom-based smartphone platform with TD-LTE radios. Several Intel-powered phones are already set to launch in China, where the TD-LTE standard has been developed.

Although the TD-LTE standard has yet to take hold in the North American market, Clearwire has confirmed that it will eventually transition to TD-LTE alongside WiMAX for 4G devices in the US market. The standard utilizes time-division technology, rather than the frequency-division system of standard LTE networks.

Intel has yet to announce specific plans surrounding upcoming TD-LTE devices.
