NSN and LG Undertake LTE Testing in 2100 MHz for Japan

Nokia Siemens Networks and LG recently completed end-to-end LTE interoperability tests in the 2100 MHz frequency band, which is the spectrum where first commercial deployments are expected in Japan.


The tests demonstrated the interoperability of Nokia Siemens Networks LTE radio equipment and Evolved Packet Core network elements with an LTE USB Datacard from LG Electronics. They were conducted at the Nokia Siemens Networks LTE center of competence in Oulu, Finland, with support from the R&D team in Ulm, Germany.


As a next step, field trials with LG's LTE terminal will begin in Nokia Siemens Networks' test network in Espoo and Ulm, followed by tests in operator networks. The trials will also be extended to cover other frequency bands such as 2600 MHz and AWS/700 in the next few months.


"The availability of commercial LTE terminals and their proven interoperability with network infrastructure are prerequisites for any operator launching commercial LTE services," said Go-hee Choi, Vice President of LG Electronics Mobile Communication Technology Research Lab. "LG is taking the next giant step towards technology leadership in LTE technology through the partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks, and will continue to collaborate to drive early LTE deployments worldwide."http://www.nsn.com
