In deploying its initial products for the recently auctioned Long-Term Evolution (LTE) spectrum bands, Motorola Inc. will include products for the 700-MHz and 2.6-GHz spectrum bands to help operators increase coverage and capacity of their networks as they strive to meet the growing demand for mobile broadband services.
Motorola's LTE products will support the future LTE Time Division Duplex (TDD) variant to meet the need of operators with a TDD spectrum holding. The company is engaged in LTE trials with operators in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region.
Motorola's LTE base station solution is comprised of its common platform site controller unit that will be shared between WiMAX 802.16e and LTE plus a variety of radio head solutions to meet specific customer requirements. The portfolio includes frame based-mounted radios, remote radio heads, and tower-top radios to support a wide variety of LTE deployment scenarios across newly available spectrum as well as existing GSM, UMTS, and CDMA spectrum.
