Huawei and Netcom (subsidiary of TeliaSonera in Norway) have announced a successful showcase of "live" services over a commercial LTE network in Oslo, Norway after the world's first mobile broadband Internet connection was achieved early this month.
Through the adoption of key LTE technologies such as MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) and OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex), the network is able to deliver download peak data rate of up to 150Mbps in one LTE cell with multiple terminals.
"Thanks to Huawei' s innovative LTE solution, it can help us keep in leading position", said Mr. August Baumann, president of Netcom, "This new technology will enable our customers to enjoy high speed and high quality 4G mobile broadband communications. "
Netcom is the second largest network operator in the country. Estimates from the Mobile World shows that the operator ended Q1 '09 with 1.75 million customers, and a market share of 32%.
