									TD-SCDMA, China opportunities

TD-SCDMA (3G) mobile technology has great potential in the world's largest mobile phone
market, with sales of more than five million handsets a month. China does not want to rely on
Western technology, and this has led to investment in new standards. TD-SCDMA allows the
rapid spread of telecommunications to the populated areas of thin, wide transmission
bandwidth and also provides access to the Internet. As the mobile world waiting for the
Chinese authorities to award between two and five 3G licenses next six months, Klaus
Ahlbeck Danish company TDSCDMA Rtx Telecom anticipates that the standards will be a
key technology for the Chinese. Currently, only four or five companies in the world are
familiar with third-generation technology developed by CATT, the Chinese Academy of
Telecommunications Technology, together with Datang and Siemens. On the basis of the
insights that Klaus Ahlbeck has been obtained through multiple visits to China, he thinks that
the Chinese standard will open the door to a market of unprecedented proportions. Until the
new millennium, the West treated China as a developing country as far as phones are
concerned, because even landlines only really exist in large cities. In the last few years,
mobile phones have proven to be an inexpensive way to expand the phone's out of town. Cell
phone use has exploded so quickly so early in the fourth quarter of 2002,
nations of the world's most populous country has 190 million cell phone users, or nearly as
many who use landlines (207 million). With sales of mobile phones an average of five
million a month, the Chinese authorities wanted that the country is on the mastery of the
technology provider. They act on the principle: you can trade with us if you give us access to
your technology in return, thus helping the telecommunications industry itself. Millions of
phones currently being sold using GSM or CDMA technology, and China Mobile, the largest
mobile operator in the world, still uses foreign-made base stations, networks and terminals.
Over the past seven to eight years in the future, China will achieve the economic level where
everyone can have a cell phone and "This is certainly one of the goals of Cinabahwa value
growth occurred in China," said Klaus Ahlbeck. However, China joined the WTO in 2001,
and in the near future, so that foreign producers will have access to the huge Chinese market
with their 2G and 3G products based on standards such as UMTS. This means that China
should make the decision to give priority to its own 3G standard TD-SCDMA for them to
give                  domestic                  industries                 a                 boost.
However, this means that China will have to cooperate with Western construction companies,
such as Rtx Telecom, which has developed technology for TD-SCDMA handsets since the
summer of 2000. Klaus Ahlbeck identify other reasons to believe that the TD-SCDMA will
be the future of 3G standards in China: that the public authority has allocated 2300-2400
MHz frequency bandwidth without revealing what that will be used for. "We think they will
use as a sort of terrestrial wireless technologies - wireless local loop - in villages, because the
majority of Chinese people still lack access to the phone either at work or at home" As.
Respect to the Internet, landline will always carry a higher data speeds than wireless
networks, but the TD-SCDMA can provide up to 2Mbp / s, which will cover the needs of
China for many years to come. If the Chinese succeed in applying its own 3G standard for
both mobile network and as a replacement for landlines, they will have technology that they
can                          export                          to                         developing
countries around the world and their neighbors in the Far East. "If they have a proven
technology within three to four years, they really will have export potential of "The Danes.
director of development thinking that the Chinese want to do the same trick as Japan and
Korea and begin the adventure of technology. Last year, China turned out 465,000 engineers
and scientists trained , and so close to the figures relating to the United States. Within three to
four years, they will also be as highly skilled as an American and begin to beat the Silicon
Valley. The concept extends the expected computation comes to the fore in the next decade
have                                                                                            not
Another reason to think that there is a great future in store for TD-SCDMA. Analysts
estimate that demand for M2M communications will exceed that for mobile phones.
Monitoring water levels in rivers and reservoirs and pump use and alarms can all be done
through the cellular network. Once again, the director of development at Rtx Telecom
considers that the Chinese want to master its own technology to ensure that they are as
independent             as          possible            of           Western           technology.
"In ten years, China will be able to fully deploy TD-SCDMA, while today they need to ask
for development assistance from companies like ours." However, the strongest argument of
all to predict that the TD-SCDMA will be the future for China's 3G is on the technology
itself: the TD-SCDMA is built directly on the development of GSM, which is a technology
that the Chinese are already familiar with. The leap from GSM to TD-SCDMA will thus be
less painful than the move to UMTS, an evolution rather than revolution. The fate of interim
UMTS in Europe will also make China think twice when choosing their 3G solutions. As TD-
SCDMA is an evolution of GSM, the product will not cost a great deal more. Putting TD-
SCDMA to GSM phones will be quite inexpensive, while the cost of a four-fold to put
UMTS         in      GSM        phone.       TD-SCDMA           can      also      build     entire
advantage of GSM, and therefore could also become cheaper and cheaper as regards both the
network and handsets. During field trials of TD-SCDMA in Beijing, it was possible to make
video calls from the car even at speeds up to 125 km / h and up to 21 kilometers from the
base station - without any real loss in quality. Furthermore, TD-SCDMA has spectrum
efficiency is high because it requires no separate bands for uplink and downlink
asynchronous and has a flexible data rates ranging from 1.2 kbp / s 2Mbp / s in both
directions, making it suitable for Internet traffic. There are two or three groups in the world
currently working on standards for this type of critical approval for phone TD-SCDMA
network,            and            Rtx            Telecom             edit           specifications
for type approval of TD-SCDMA terminals. The company is currently testing a prototype
with Siemens ICM N, a call using TD-SCDMA network via Siemens. Rtx Telecom also has a
contact through Siemens by Agilent, which is developing test equipment for laboratory
measure whether an individual TD-SCDMA phones meet the requirements. Klaus Ahlbeck
concludes "The basic technology in place, but the TD-SCDMA standard is still somewhat
mature. Many of the requirements specification is still vague, which is why it is important to
in contact with several people who have a thorough knowledge of technology. When we, as a
development company , spoke about the customer, we do not just mean the Chinese people
themselves, but also Nokia and Motorola. We took a risk and go ahead with the development
of TD-SCDMA, while large producers decided to develop UMTS. "
