NSN Support LTE-A Launches in Korea

NSN confirmed that is supported the world’s first operators to launch LTE-Advanced commercially:  SK Telecom, LG U+ and Korea Telecom .

The operators have implemented LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation with a software upgrade for Nokia Solutions and Network’s Flexi Multiradio Base Stations.

LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation enables the operators to reach up to 150 Mbps throughput by dynamically combining the resources of the two LTE frequency bands. The carrier aggregation feature doubles the data rates compared to those before the upgrade.

“Our collaboration with SK Telecom, LG U+ and Korea Telecom over the years has given us a deep understanding of one of the world’s most advanced LTE markets. Our innovative approach to carrier aggregation and expertise in delivering superior network performance have enabled the three operators to move ahead with full speed and confidence when launching their LTE-Advanced networks,” said Marc Rouanne, executive vice president, Mobile Broadband at NSN. “We are now witnessing great momentum in LTE adoption worldwide – and we are ready to help operators meet the ever increasing bandwidth demand while taking full advantage of their LTE spectrum.”
