November 15, 2013 – The 4G LTE era has arrived in Taiwan’s mobile devices communication! NCC (National Communications Commission) has announced technical specifications for mobile broadband radio equipment related LTE (Long Term Evolution) devices inspection on October 15, 2013, and completed the bidding process  for mobile broadband carrier’s service on Oct. 30, 2013.


Bureau Veritas is pleased to announce that the company becomes first 4G LTE NCC test lab approved by Taiwan Accreditation Foundation  (TAF)  in Taiwan on 14 Nov. 2013 providing 4G LTE NCC PLMN10 (Mobile broadband Subscriber station technical specifications for LTE terminal equipment)and IS2050 (Mobile broadband Base Station Radio Frequency Equipment technical specifications for LTE Based Station) testing service.



As the result of the wide usage of smart devices and its rapidly technical development,  the mobile broadband is driven into a new technology generation. LTE 4G has gradually become a general standard in the world.  According to DIGITIMES Research, global LTE users are estimated to reach 208 million in 2013 and the annual growth rate is 205%. By the end of 2013, the global LTE users will exceed 200 million (remark :1). It can be asserted that Taiwan is a broadband island because there are 7.86 million broadband users compared to 23.1 million populations in 7.8 million families in Taiwan.  The penetration rate in terms of household internet users is 78.7% and the percentage for schools, government organizations using internet are 100%. Increasingly, the mobile users on internet climb to 16.6 million. The bandwidth of global network is up to 330Gbps and the penetration rate for broadband usage rises continuously(remark : 1).



As far as the current technology is concerned, the international telecom operators have adopted the LTE base station with 3GPP R8 specifications. The peak throughput can be up to 150 Mbps for the LTE base station which complies R8 specifications with 2X2 MIMO and deploys 20MHz bandwidth( remark: 2 ).


With the continuous development of LTE technology and move forward in the future, there will be numerous end products supporting LTE smart phone and tablet devices. Bureau Veritas has foreseen the booming LTE capability in the future and we are pleased to acquire this qualification for providing NCC PLMN10 and IS2050 testing service as the first Product Testing Laboratory in Taiwan.
