Ericsson demonstrates LTE Advanced

28 Jun 2011

Sweden-based technology giant Ericsson has demonstrated the next phase of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband standard, LTE Advanced, to the Swedish Post and Telecom Agency (PTS). The demonstration, held in Kista, Sweden, achieved speeds more than ten times faster than those currently experienced by LTE consumers in the country. The LTE Advanced system, based on commercial hardware compliant with 3GPP Release 10 protocols, was operating on test frequencies provided by the PTS. The enhancements introduced with LTE Advanced include carrier aggregation and extended multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) functionality, and the project saw Ericsson demonstrate LTE Advanced functionality such as carrier aggregation of 3×20MHz (60MHz aggregated) over the air in a mobile environment for the first time. The first LTE Advanced networks are expected to be in commercial operation in 2013.
