LTE TDD Year Book

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.
