Huawei and China Mobile Deploy LTE TDD on Mount Everest
Huawei has announced the successful 4G LTE TDD deployment with China Mobile atop Mount Everest, 5,200 meters above sea level. At a June 11 ceremony marking the launch of the service, China Mobile demonstrated a series of new 4G technologies to more than 200 guests including live HD video streaming from a Mount Everest base camp to the event venue.
Huawei has already delivered 4G solutions to other parts of the region including EPC, integrated equipment rooms, BTS, microwave transmission and 4G devices.
In 2007, Huawei worked with China Mobile and others to realize GSM coverage on Mount Everest to ensure mountain climber safety and to prepare for a leg of the 2008 Olympic Games torch relay.
