Ericsson and Samsung Test LTE interoperability in Stockholm

Ericsson and Samsung successfully achieved interoperability between the world's first commercial LTE device from Samsung and the live network from Ericsson in Stockholm, Sweden. Through extensive testing in Stockholm, Samsung LTE dongles and Ericsson's infrastructure have complied with the industry standard for commercial deployment, 3GPP Release 8 March baseline. The end-to-end connection was provided via LTE FDD technology

"This is the first time a commercial, standard compliant LTE device demonstrated full interoperability with a live network. It is an important milestone for Ericsson and the mobile industry," stated Johan Wibergh, Senior Vice President and Head of Networks at Ericsson.
