Huawei and LG Uplus Complete World's First Commercial Trial of 3 Band Carrier Aggregation
Published on: 9th Jun 2014
South Korea's LG Uplus has completed the world's first commercial network field trail of 3 different band Carrier Aggregation (3CC CA). The trial was carried out with Huawei.
LG Uplus currently has 7.5 million LTE subscribers across three commercial LTE network bandwidths of 800 MHz, 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz. After several trails were conducted in the lab and via un-commercialized networks, this is the world's first commercial network field trail based on commercial 800 MHz (10 MHz), 2100 MHz (10 MHz) and 2600 MHz (20 MHz) bandwidths, with 300 Mbps peak throughput.
As a key LTE-Advanced technology, CA combines two or more basic bands to meet higher throughput demand and efficiently deliver ultra-fast data speeds, strengthening overall network capacity.
The technology will be supported by 3CC compatible smart phones later this year.
LG Uplus now plans to deploy technologies such as Intelligent Carrier Aggregation to provide better user experiences.
Mr. William Wang, President of Huawei LTE Wireless Network, said: "The commercial trial of 3CC CA is a great success for both LG Uplus and Huawei. We value our partnership with LG Uplus and will continue to work with them in further developing LTE/LTE-A technology innovation and commercial practices,"
