HONG KONG-ZTE Corp. announced that its TD-SCDMA standard has been approved by the Third Generation Partnership Project as one of the 3G mobile communications standards.
ZTE said its TR 34.943 standard was drafted with Datang Mobile and China’s Research Institute of Telecommunications Transmission, a subsidiary of China’s Ministry of Information Industry. The company said its TR 34.943 standard will significantly speed up the TD-SCDMA conformance testing progress and improve TD-SCDMA implementation, thereby accelerating international acceptance of the standard.
“We initiated the standard drafting in early 2004,” said Hu Jian, general manager of ZTE’s TD-SCDMA products. “Now, our efforts have paid off-the TR 34.943 standard, a pivotal specification for TD-SCDMA industrialization, has been approved smoothly.”
ZTE said it has been dedicated to TD-SCDMA standards and patents since early 2001, and that in 2004 alone the company applied for more than 100 TD-SCDMA patents in China and abroad.
