Alcatel-Lucent and LG complete LTE call

Alcatel-Lucent and LG Electronics announced that they have completed Long Term Evolution (LTE) test calls using Alcatel-Lucent's LTE solution and device prototypes from LG. The companies claim this is one of the first multi-vendor, over-the-air LTE interoperability tests to date. LTE is currently being standardized by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). The companies tested super high-speed data transmissions transmitting over a 10 MHz channel. The companies' trials are part of a broader testing initiative that is being overseen by LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI) group. The companies carried out the tests with Bell Labs researchers in Alcatel-Lucent's facility in Stuttgart, Germany.
