T-Mobile's HSPA+/LTE Network to Use Integrated Radios
T-Mobile USA CTO Neville Ray said that a key factor in the company's network migration to LTE 4G will be the use of integrated radios in its base stations. Integrated radios include both the antenna and the radio on a single unit. This set-up requires less space than traditional equipment, and use less power. Using integrated radios will help T-Mobile build out its LTE network much faster than it otherwise could. Ray said that the company came up with its network roadmap in just eight weeks, and is moving as fast as possible. T-Mobile told Phone Scoop that the company has already made a number of changes to its network in the past year (as it expected to be folded into AT&T) that will help it accomplish its LTE network build out faster.
