ZTE showcases the co-existence of WiMAX and TD-LTE on the same network at Port Dickson in collaboration with P1, Malaysia's WiMAX operator, making ZTE the first company in the industry to successfully test this innovatory technology.

ZTE is the developer of P1's incumbent WiMAX network. During the demonstration, ZTE used the same WiMAX system to upgrade it into the TD-LTE system in less than an hour without replacing any hardware. During this process, two terminals shared the 20MHz bandwidth, and the peak speed of TD-LTE during the demonstration was up to 130Mbps.

The demonstration proved that the company's base-station supports the seamless upgrade from WiMAX to TD-LTE and that the company has the right solution for the evolution for WiMAX and TD-LTE to co-exist.

"WiMAX has enabled P1 to become a 4G leader in Southeast Asia. Our next step is to become the first company leveraging on the power of WiMAX and LTE so that we can provide the world's best 4G technologies to our customers," said Michael Lai, chief executive officer of P1.

"The decision to deploy LTE will depend on other major operators in Asia. In other words, it will depend on the maturity of the eco-system when operators around the world, such as China and India, begin the commercial application of TD-LTE as well as also the availability of LTE devices," Lai added.

ZTE has many technical and commercial advantages in the converged application of LTE FDD/LTE TDD, as well as CDMA/LTE and WiMAX/LTE TDD. Recently, Hi3G chose ZTE to build the world's first LTE FDD/TDD dual-mode commercial network in Sweden and Denmark.
