Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies achieved download speeds of up to 450 Mbps in the industry's first inter-company interoperability testing of LTE Category 9.

Testing was conducted using Ericsson's LTE-Advanced network infrastructure, including its commercially available 14B software release and RBS 6000 family of base stations, along with Qualcomm's next-generation LTE-Advanced modem.  Ericsson said it supports all bandwidth and frequency combinations for up to 60 MHz 3x Carrier Aggregation, providing users with speeds of up to 450 Mbps.

Thomas NorĂ©n, Vice President, Head of Radio Product Management at Ericsson says: "Inter-company vendor interoperability testing between network and device is key to enabling large-scale commercial deployments.  Working with ecosystem partner Qualcomm, we continue to drive LTE innovation and performance improvements, ensuring a great user experience even as mobile broadband demand grows."

Serge Willenegger, Vice President of Product Management, QTI, says: "We are excited to see our next-generation LTE-Advanced modem play an important role in enabling the world's first multi-company interoperability Category 9 test. We are pleased to be working closely with Ericsson to help lead the mobile industry's transition to next-generation network connectivity as ultra-fast mobile broadband connectivity has become an essential feature for mobile users."
