Huawei says that it has carried out LTE A Category 6 connectivity tests with download speeds reaching up to 300 Mbps. This test was jointly completed with Qualcomm.
The test utilized SingleRAN equipment available from Huawei and Qualcomm Technologies' fourth-generation multimode LTE modem - the Qualcomm Gobi 9x35.
A peak download speed of up to 300 Mbps was made possible, with added support for up to 40MHz wideband carrier aggregation.
Since the world's first LTE-A network was launched in Moscow in October, 2012, LTE-A has become a hot technology around the globe. Leading operators such as EE from the United Kingdom, Zain from Kuwait, LGU+ from South Korea, have all commenced LTE-Advanced technology testing and commercial trials.
David Wang, President of Huawei Wireless Network Product Line, said: "The successful test marks an important step for LTE-A commercialization. We will continue to invest in cutting edge technologies and work closely with industry partners to promote the development of mobile broadband around the world."
