NSN Hits 56 Mbps Uploads with TD-LTE in 20 MHz Carrier

Nokia Siemens Networks achieved a record 56 Mbps peak upload throughput in a TD-LTE network using its commercial 4G base station with multiple antenna technology and a single 20 MHz carrier.

The company set this record in a test network in Hangzhou, China, using its Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station and Single User Multiple Input Multiple Output (SU-MIMO) technology.

Nokia Siemens Networks claims uplink records for both SU-MIMO and Multi User-Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technologies.

“We are witnessing a mobile data traffic boom with users downloading – and increasingly also uploading – huge files”, said Tero Peltola, vice president, LTE at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Nokia Siemens Networks is proud to be at the forefront of TD-LTE innovation, helping operators increase data throughput in their networks and provide superior customer experience for tomorrow’s smartphone users. Today’s download speeds will be tomorrow’s upload speeds.”
