The right way to balance traffic across
TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE networks

Boost your network’s capacity

Fully use all spectrum to deliver the best customer experience

Scarcity of spectrum is an ongoing issue as operators strive to keep pace with demand and provide an excellent high-speed mobile broadband service for their customers. While the earliest LTE roll-outs typically relied on frequency division duplexing (FDD-LTE), there is high interest in exploiting the time division duplex variant of LTE (TD-LTE).

This white paper describes the most effective techniques for achieving the co-existence of the two technologies:

  • The different ways TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE interwork
  • How dynamic traffic steering balances network loading
  • How a special Nokia algorithm balances traffic without the need for a centralized controller
  • Why new 3GPP features are important to help further boost capacity
