China Mobile teams up with ZTE to make VoTD-LTE call

Chinese kit vendor ZTE has teamed up with the nation’s leading mobile operator China Mobile, and US semiconductor firm Marvell Technology Group to make what it claims is the world’s first voice over TD-LTE (VoTD-LTE) call.

The call was conducted on China Mobile’s network in Guangzhou, using 5-mode, 13-band smartphones powered by Marvell’s chipsets. The network uses ZTE’s TD-LTE technology and core IMS platform.

ZTE said that the successful VoTD-LTE call in Guangzhou will help accelerate the adoption of voice services on TD-LTE networks, and usher in the TD-LTE full-service era.

China Mobile has 737.5 million subscribers as of March 2013, according to Informa’s WCIS, almost three times as many as second-placed China Unicom.
