SK Telecom Deploys LTE Small Cells with Carrier Aggregation

SK Telecom, Korea's largest telecommunications company, has selected Broadcom's latest small cell system-on-chip (SoC) devices with carrier aggregation technology to enhance its high-speed 4G LTE services.  SK Telecom aims to be the first carrier to deploy LTE small cells capable of aggregating two non-contiguous bands, thus increasing bandwidth and data throughout its LTE network.

"SK Telecom is making constant efforts to enhance our LTE network and offer a wider range of value added services to our mobile customers," said Park Jin-hyo, SK Telecom Senior Vice President and Head of the Network Technology R&D Center.  "As a result of Broadcom's superior capabilities in small cell chipset innovation, we can deliver the seamless mobile experience our subscribers have come to expect."

Broadcom’s BCM61765 SoC supports both inter-band and intra-band Carrier Aggregation services in both TD-LTE and FD-LTE concurrently.
