Telstra, Ericsson and Qualcomm achieve 450 Mbps speeds with LTE Advanced

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.

Chipmakers start seeing the importance of more robust uplink- up to 100 Mbps- for LTE

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.

Schoolar: LTE Advanced may just be carrier aggregation, and that is OK

We have had commercial LTE Advanced (LTE-A) networks since mid-2013 launches by LGU U Plus and SK Telecom in South Korea. Both of these mobile operators made their LTE-A claims based purely on deploying carrier aggregation (CA). None of the other technology advances coming with LTE-A were used. Those features include coordinated multipoint (CoMP), higher orders of MIMO, enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC), and relay nodes.

Telecom Italia heralds 'signs of change' despite fall in core profit

Telecom Italia CEO Marco Patuano said the company's performance in the first nine months of the year showed "signs of change" on its domestic market, proclaiming that the operator has overcome a price war thanks to its focus on quality of service.

EE launches LTE Advanced services in London, reaches 6M LTE users

EE said its LTE Advanced network has now gone live in London, as the UK operator vies with Vodafone UK to become the first operator to roll out the higher speed network across the country.

Huawei to commercialize '4.5G' technology in 2016, aims for speeds of 6 Gbps

While standards around what "5G" network technology is are being contemplated, Huawei is thinking ahead to an interim evolution, which it calls "4.5G" and plans to launch commercially in 2016. According to Huawei, such 4.5 G networks will support latency rates of around 10 milliseconds, peak downlink speeds of around 6 Gbps, and the ability to support 100,000 connections within a single square kilometer.

Nokia Networks' Moiin on the pillars of 5G and the likelihood of a new air interface

Though LTE and LTE Advanced are still being rolled out worldwide, the wireless communications industry is already gearing up for 5G, envisioned as its next technology revolution. Many in the industry are debating exactly what features and benefits should be offered by this next generation of wireless. FierceWirelessTech Editor Tammy Parker recently checked in with Hossein Moiin, CTO of Nokia Networks, to discuss his vision for 5G. Following is an edited and condensed version of that conversation.

T-Mobile will work with Nokia Networks to launch LTE carrier aggregation

T-Mobile US is working to enhance its LTE network with Nokia  Networks, which indicated that it will enable carrier-aggregation technology for the carrier.

Ericsson reaches 300 Mbps in over-the-air trial of intraband LTE carrier aggregation

Ericsson and Deutsche Telekom's Slovak Telecom business unit achieved data speeds of 300 Mbps in over-the-air field trials for intraband contiguous LTE carrier aggregation. The trials were the first for LTE Band 7, 2.6 GHz spectrum, using a 20+20 MHz configuration in a field environment, Ericsson said.

GSA: 79 carriers are working on LTE Advanced

LTE Advanced is advancing. According to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), 79 carriers in total have launched, have deployed or are trialing LTE Advanced technologies in their networks. The GSA also said 21 operators have launched LTE Advanced carrier aggregation in 14 countries.
