NSN Hits 1.6 Gbps with TD-LTE

Nokia Siemens Networks announced a new speed record for TD-LTE -- 1.6 Gbps. The previous record -- also set by NSN - was 1.3 Gbps.


The record was set using the company's commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station to receive and send data in simultaneous downlink and uplink connections, reaching an overall speed of 1.6 Gbps.  The test used 60 MHz of aggregated spectrum with an 8-pipe radio module that enables eight streams of uplink MU-MIMO.  The test was performed at the Nokia Siemens Networks lab in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

NSN also noted that the 8-pipe radio module design even exceeded the specs of LTE-Advanced, which requires only four streams of uplink MU-MIMO. 

“We have been pushing the limits in 4G technology, and this time we have done so with 1.6 Gbps data throughput and increased uplink capacity. We are proud to be enabling the commercial readiness for LTE-Advanced and beyond,” said Tommi Uitto, head of mobile broadband value creation management at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Users want to be able to upload and download huge files, which underscores the need for operators to drastically increase data throughput and capacity in their mobile networks.”
