Qualcomm, Telstra, Ericsson, NETGEAR Show Gigabit-Ready LTE

Qualcomm, in collaboration with Telstra, Ericsson and NETGEAR, showcased the first Gigabit Class LTE mobile device and the first Gigabit Class LTE commercially ready network.

The results of this relationship includes: The NETGEAR Mobile Router MR1100, based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem along with Qualcomm Wi-Fi solutions, which is the first consumer end device capable of reaching Gigabit Class LTE download speeds up to 1 Gbps; and Telstra’s new Gigabit Class LTE network enabled by Ericsson.

“Achieving the world’s first Gigabit Class LTE download speeds between a mobile device and commercial ready network is another industry achievement towards the availability of Gigabit LTE services,” said Serge Willenegger, Senior Vice President, Qualcomm Technologies. “Qualcomm Technologies has long been a leader in LTE, pioneering many of the building blocks for 3G and 4G and now paving the way to 5G. We’re excited to celebrate this milestone with our partners and to demonstrate our leadership in the commercialization of key technologies that will be foundational elements of future 5G deployments.”

Telstra said its LTE network can support over-the-air data download speeds up to 1 Gbp. The network uses network infrastructure equipment and software from Ericsson.

“We pride ourselves on our connectivity expertise and we continue that tradition today by completing the first commercialization of a Gigabit Class LTE network and device,” said Mike Wright, Telstra’s Group Managing Director Networks. “With the world’s first Gigabit Class LTE network, we have substantially improved our network capacity and increased real-world LTE download speeds, while also gaining a distinct advantage over competitors as we can
