Ericsson and Qualcomm have successfully completed the inter-vendor interoperability testing of LTE Category 6, based on commercial LTE chipsets and infrastructure supporting Telstra's carrier aggregation bands. 

Final stages of testing were completed in collaboration with Telstra, whose LTE Advanced network in Australia is being readied for Category 6 commercial launch. LTE Category 6 offers much higher potential data speeds than Category 4, which peaks at 150Mbps.

The equipment used for the tests was based on ready-to-release versions of Ericsson's L14A software release. Ericsson L14A all bandwidth and frequency combinations for up to 40MHz Carrier Aggregation, providing users with speeds of up to 300Mbps.

The test used Qualcomm Technologies' fourth-generation 3G/LTE multimode modem, the Qualcomm® Gobi(TM) 9x35 chipset.
