Nokia and T-Mobile achieve LTE speeds near 1 Gbps

Nokia and T-Mobile have achieved LTE speeds near 1 Gbps in a demonstration using Nokia’s deployed 4.5G Pro technology. The demonstration, conducted at T-Mobile’s lab in Bellevue, Washington, encompassed technologies currently live in the operator’s network, including carrier aggregation, 256 QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and 4×4 MIMO (Multiple Input and Multiple Output) on Nokia’s commercially available radio access hardware. With Category 16 (Cat 16) capable devices becoming commercially available in early 2017, the solution enables an even faster network for T-Mobile. Currently, the network provides speeds up to 400 Mbps

Neville Ray, CTO, T-Mobile, said: “We’ve had the fastest LTE network for the last three straight years, but we never stop innovating. We demonstrated nearly 1 Gbps speeds over the air on LTE with our long-standing strategic partner, Nokia, to show how much more our network can do to achieve higher speeds and superior performance.”

Ricky Corker, EVP and Head of North America, Nokia, added: “We are committed to supporting T-Mobile with our latest technology innovations, and working alongside them to show what the future of mobile communications can be for their Un-carrier customers. Use of three-carrier component aggregation with 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM is the perfect solution for T-Mobile as it looks to optimise network performance with available spectrum. With this demonstration, we are preparing the T-Mobile network to launch the highest speeds possible.”
