In addition, leveraging NSN's Flexi Multiradio base station, the company also conducted the demonstration on the industry's first dual-mode TD-SCDMA (TD-Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access)/TD-LTE demo network. This achievement marked a significant progress for NSN towards helping telecom operators smoothly migrate their existing TD-SCDMA networks to TD-LTE, according to the same source.
