Ericsson Tests LTE-A Carrier Aggregation in Hungary
Published on: 28th Apr 2014
Ericsson and Hungary's Magyar Telekom have demonstrated LTE A Carrier Aggregation technology for the first time in the country. The demonstration was done on 1800Mhz and 2.6GHz spectrum bands at Magyar Telekom's headquarters.
LTE Carrier Aggregation is the next step in the evolution of high-speed mobile broadband services, enabling operators to make the most of their existing spectrum assets by combining multiple bands to enable higher mobile broadband download speeds.
Valter D'Avino, Head of Region Western & Central Europe Ericsson, says: "Using LTE-Advanced technology, operators can increase their network capacity and enhance the mobile broadband user experience, enabling up to 1Gbps data rates in the future. We are very proud to have partnered with Magyar Telekom in this achievement. This confirms our long-standing partnership with Magyar Telekom and is important, not only for Ericsson but also in terms of realizing the Networked Society."
No news of when a commercial rollout will take place though.
