Ericsson Showcases its Long-Term Evolution - System Architecture Evolution (LTE/SAE)

At this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Ericsson will be showcasing its Long-Term Evolution - System Architecture Evolution (LTE/SAE). The company plans to demonstrate its LTE handheld mobile devices as well as LTE network equipment supports multi-user data rates of up to 160Mbps per cell.

LTE is the next evolution in mobile network standards as defined by the 3GPP (Third-Generation Partnership Project) and supports operations in both the paired spectrum and unpaired spectrum. It enables efficient spectrum utilization for both legacy and future wireless frequency bands.

"This world-first demonstration marks a key milestone in the development of LTE. It proves the stability and integration of our platform with a form factor accurate handheld device, reaching uplink and downlink data speeds of 25Mbit/s already today. Samples of our first LTE platform will be available in 2008," said Robert Puskaric, head of Ericsson's mobile platforms business.
