Huawei has partnered with EE and Qualcomm Technologies to successfully complete LTE category 9 testing, which has achieved download speeds of up to 410Mbps.The test utilized Huawei's infrastructure solution across EE's LTE-A '4G+' network alongside QTI's Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810 processor with integrated LTE-Advanced next-generation modem. 

Category 9 technology will enable EE to aggregate 20MHz of 1800MHz spectrum with another 20MHz of 2.6GHz, and a third carrier of 15MHz of 2.6GHz. In working together in this kind of interoperability testing, Huawei, QTI and EE aim to help develop the technology that will deliver this service and eventually support commercial deployment.

EE plans to use remaining 15MHz of 2.6GHz spectrum to demonstrate this at Wembley Stadium early next year.
