Airspan Networks says that it has started the deployment of a 2.6 GHz TD LTE network with Brazilian Telco ON in Sao Paulo state using its Air4G small cell.
"We have taken the decision to aggressively deploy the LTE-Advanced ready systems in our concession area in Brazil's Sao Paulo State because of its ability to quickly offer very high-quality Internet connectivity to a large footprint," commented Farès Nassar, CEO of ON.
The first phase of the deployment will be completed by March 2013 and then immediately enter commercial service, subject to the approval of the necessary operating license. The Air4G LTE-A deployment will then be expanded to other regions of Sao Paulo state.
