LTE-Advanced with Record Data Rate of 600Mb/s

in Blog, Huawei, LTE Advanced, LteWorld

Huawei recently demonstrated data download speeds of up to 600Mb/s using its latest LTE-Advanced system at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2010. The record speeds, which are 20 times faster than existing commercial 3G networks, is expected to revolutionize user experience by meeting bandwidth requirements of data heavy applications, such as being able to transmit a 4GB DVD movie in less than one minute.

Huawei further claims to be world’s first vendor to use multi-carrier aggregation and high-order MIMO technology in its LTE-Advanced system, which increases spectrum efficiency up to five times thus greatly reducing transmission costs. The system also incorporates Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) Reception and Transmission, with which signals from a wireless device are received from several coordinated base stations. This function allows operators to efficiently utilize the network infrastructure without installing more antennas.

Wan Biao, President of Wireless, Huawei, said: "This milestone heralds the industry is moving towards the Giga-bits era of mobile broadband. Huawei is committed to accelerating the commercialization and adoption of LTE technology through continuously offering solutions to reduce the per-bit cost and improve the profitability for operators worldwide."

LTE-Advanced is currently being standardized by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) as a major enhancement of 3GPP Long Term Evolution. LTE-Advanced will include key features such as worldwide functionality and roaming, compatibility of services, interoperability with other radio access systems, and enhanced peak data rates to support advanced services and applications (100 Mb/s for high and 1 Gb/s for low mobility).
