Huawei Demonstrates LTE-Advanced at 600 Mbps

At Mobile World Congress, Huawei Technologies is showing downlinks of up to 600 Mbps using multi-carrier aggregation and high-order MIMO technology in an LTE-Advanced system.

LTE-Advanced is currently being standardized by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) as a major enhancement of 3GPP Long Term Evolution. LTE-Advanced will include key features such as worldwide functionality and roaming, compatibility of services, interoperability with other radio access systems, and enhanced peak data rates to support advanced services and applications (100 Mbps for high and 1 Gbps for low mobility).

Huawei said its LTE-Advanced system incorporates Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) Reception and Transmission, with which signals from a wireless device are received from several coordinated base stations. This function could optimize network design without employing more antennas.

Huawei's LTE-Advanced solution also features PCC (Policy Charging and Control) based on SAE (System Architecture Evolution), which allows oerators to manage bandwidth utilization while optimizing valuable end-user experience.

Wan Biao, President of Wireless, Huawei, said: "This milestone heralds the industry is moving towards the Giga-bits era of mobile broadband. Huawei is committed to accelerating the commercialization and adoption of LTE technology through continuously offering solutions to reduce the per-bit cost and improve the profitability for operators worldwide."http://www.huawei.comhttp://
