Using a single small cell base station, the 4G LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) solution combines StarHub’s 55MHz of spectrum across the 1800MHz, 2100MHz and 2600MHz bands to deliver gigabit bandwidth, whilst other technologies involved include ‘256 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, 3-component-carrier aggregation and Distributed Multiple Input Multiple Output.’ Commercial trials of the solution are ongoing, and StarHub aims to deploy it when supported phone models reach Singapore.
