Nokia Networks said it completed the first demonstration of TDD-FDD carrier aggregation on a commercial chipset in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, in conjunction with Saudi Telecom Company (STC).
AT&T Mobility is going to deploy carrier aggregation technology where it can, depending on how much spectrum it has available to meld together, according to a senior company executive.
Thanks to an exclusive partnership between FierceWireless and network testing firm RootMetrics, readers will be able to see the maximum recorded downlink and uplink speeds the firm observed for the four Tier 1 carriers across eight different regions in the U.S. The data also lets readers see which regions of the country in general let wireless customers access the highest peak downlink and uplink speeds. RootMetrics conducted extensive testing across the country both in the first half of 2014 and in the third quarter to gauge how the four Tier 1 carriers fared in terms of maximum downlink and uplink speeds.
ABI Research estimates that 676 million 4G LTE handsets will be shipped in 2015, increasing by 204 million units from 2014.
BEDMINSTER, N.J.-- Verizon Wireless plans to launch carrier aggregation for its 700 MHz and AWS spectrum in 2015 along with other LTE Advanced features, according to a Verizon executive.
After drooping revenues in 2014, coming deployments of LTE Advanced technologies and small cells are expected to drive the microwave equipment market back to growth, according to a new report from Infonetics Research.
Ericsson, Telstra, and Qualcomm claimed a further milestone in the development of LTE Advanced carrier aggregation technology, by revealing they achieved download speeds on mobile data networks of up to 450 Mbps.
Downlink data speeds on LTE networks get a lot of attention, and uplink speeds get much less love. That's mainly because carriers and consumers have long been concerned with what kinds of streaming data can be pulled down from the network to mobile devices. However, chipset suppliers are starting to herald the importance of increasing uplink bandwidth for applications like cloud data uploads and video calling.
Two former rivals are once again teaming up, with Qualcomm Technologies and Ericsson successfully completing an inter-company interoperability testing of LTE Category 9 connectivity with download speeds of up to 450 Mbps.
During Nokia Capital Markets Day 2014 in London, CEO and President Rajeev Suri identified small cells as one of the areas where Nokia Networks will continue to expand and invest.
