Sequans’ LTE Technology Approved for China Mobile’s TD-LTE Trials
Sequans Communications announced that its second generation LTE baseband chip has been officially approved by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) for use in China.
The latest approval signifies that Sequans’ technology is qualified specifically for the phase 2 large-scale LTE trials being deployed by China Mobile. The trials demonstrate the operation of LTE Release 9 and dual-mode TD-SCDMA and LTE as required in China.
Sequans’ first generation LTE technology was approved by MIIT last year.
“We are very pleased to have this second stamp of approval from MIIT, signaling our readiness for deployment in China and the rest of the world,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “We have long experience in China, stretching back to our participation in China Mobile’s first public demonstration of TD-LTE, and we have established valuable and productive partnerships with other key players in China, including Nationz.”
