Nokia Solutions and Networks says that it has linked up with the USA based Sprint to accomplish a huge leap in TD LTE network speeds by demonstrating 2.6Gbps throughput over a single sector.
The two companies aggregated 120 MHz of Sprint's TDD spectrum to deliver the achievement.
Using its commercially available Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, NSN's Mountain View facility in California beat the previous 1.6 Gbps record. NSN added that it is also launching a ,odule for TD-LTE that can deliver up to 5 Gbps of peak throughput from a single site.
"With demand for high-speed mobile broadband services growing rapidly around the world, NSN and Sprint are showing how operators can unlock the highest capacity from their TDD spectrum," said Zhang Qi, vice president for TD-LTE at NSN.
In a further development, NSN is launching a high-capacity TD-LTE baseband system module for its Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station product family that can deliver up to 5 Gbps of peak throughput from a single site.
