LTE TDD Year Book White Paper

The momentum behind LTE-TDD and its emerging role in the mobile broadband landscape was boosted in 2012 and looks set to gather pace in 2013. FDD remains the foundation of most of today’s commercial LTE services, but the early commitment to TDD by a group of large and influential operators, led by China Mobile, Japan’s Softbank, India’s Bharti-Airtel and US operator Clearwire, has grown into a global movement with widespread backing from mobile operators, equipment vendors, device suppliers and chipset developers.

Because LTE-TDD technology is widely adopted in key markets such as China, India and Japan, the ecosystem around TDD bands is expected to build. Market volume is set to grow rapidly in 2013, due to reductions in the cost of equipment and devices to the level of those for LTE-FDD.
