China's TD-LTE standard is unlikely to face the same obstacles that plagued the country's earlier mobile wireless standard, TD-SCDMA, industry analysts say.
China in October submitted TD-LTE specifications to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for approval as a 4G standard. If ratified, it will be officially recognized by the ITU as a 4G technology in October 2010, according to reports.
While the country's 3G predecessor, TD-SCDMA, got off to a bumpy start, dogged by technical issues and a lack of device variety, industry watchers are expecting TD-LTE to fare better.
