Cosmote Hits 500 Gbps with LTE FDD 3x Carrier Aggregation + 256QAM

Cosmote Greece achieved download speeds of 500Mbps in a live LTE network using equipment from Ericsson.

Cosmote is implementing FDD 3xCarrier Aggregation & 256 QAM innovation to their commercial network, boosting performance and market differentiation.


The demonstration, which took place at the Infocom World 2015 event in Athens on November 24, 2015, used Ericsson’s radio solutions and Ericsson Networks Software 16A . In addition, three component 20+20+10MHz FDD LTE carrier aggregation in combination with 256 QAM modulation deployed in a live network for the first time in the European market.

Ericsson said its 256QAM downlink encoding technology provides up to 33 percent higher downlink throughput in good radio conditions. This enables more efficient use of the spectrum allocated to a cell, as well as a 33 percent increase in maximum user downlink throughput.
