The 16th GTI (Global TD-LTE Initiative) Workshop took place during Jun. 27-28, 2016 in Shanghai, China, gathering more than 200 industrial leaders and experts from 19 operators and 36 industrial partners and organizations. A focus on TDD evolution towards 5G entailed subsequent work to support 5G on 4G hardware and a whitepaper to be delivered. Industrial progress on 3D MIMO reassured operators that it should be adopted to lift performance and could be reused as 4G evolves to 5G. Updates on High Power UE were also introduced as a key to TDD Uplink enhancement.
In addition, latest progress and key issues on LTE-A, VoLTE, 3.5GHz, LTE Global Phone, Roaming, and Innovative Business Models and Applications were also shared and discussed in depth.
Meanwhile, demonstrations were held with focuses on real-time 3D MIMO experience, world-first 3.3-3.4GHz end-to-end system, WIMO Home solution and industrial progress and test systems on Cellular IoT, LTE-A, VoLTE and EVS.
