Nokia Siemens Networks says that it has achieved a record breaking 56 Mbps peak upload throughput in a TD LTE network using its commercial 4G base station with multiple antenna technology and a single 20 MHz carrier.
The latest TD-LTE uplink throughput record was set in a test network in Hangzhou, China.
To achieve this uplink milestone, the company used its Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station alongside Single User Multiple Input Multiple Output (SU-MIMO) technology.
Nokia Siemens Networks now holds uplink records for both SU-MIMO and Multi User-Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technologies. Last year, the company set two world first records for uplink throughput in TD-LTE networks, the latter of which resulted in a throughput speed beyond TD-LTE-Advanced specifications using multiple carriers. In both cases, Nokia Siemens Networks used its commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station.
"Nokia Siemens Networks is proud to be at the forefront of TD-LTE innovation, helping operators increase data throughput in their networks and provide superior customer experience for tomorrow's smartphone users. Today's download speeds will be tomorrow's upload speeds." said Tero Peltola, vice president, LTE at Nokia Siemens Networks.
