ETRI Demos LTE-Advanced at 600 Mbps

South Korea's Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) demonstrated an evolved Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Service (eMBMS) delivered to a moving vehicle and using LTE-Advanced technology. The demonstration showed 3D video. The download data rate was measured 600 Mbps. This means a 700 MB file could be downloaded in 9.3 seconds.

ETRI plans to develop a single-chip LTE-Advanced implementation. The research institute, which is also developing other functions, has about 470 staff members working on LTE-Advanced technologies.

ETRI expects LTE-Advanced will be commercially launched in Korea around 2014.
