Vodafone Tests 136 Mbps Uplink Carrier Aggregation

Vodafone Ireland has tested Ericsson's Uplink Carrier Aggregation (CA) and 64 QAM modulation technology in its commercial network.  The tests achieved 136 Mbps uplink speeds -- a 200 percent improvement compared to current uplink performance, with the ability to deliver peak throughputs of up to 150 Mbps. The demonstration also featured the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with X12 LTE.

“Qualcomm, Ericsson and Vodafone have collaborated to greatly improve uplink speeds in Europe with Carrier Aggregation, and this is just one example how Qualcomm continues to lead the evolution of 4G LTE technology,” said Enrico Salvatori, President, Qualcomm Europe.
