HONG KONG -- CSL, the first operator to launch dual band 4G LTE/DC-HSPA+ network in Asia, today joins hands with ZTE to announce the deployment of the first LTE Advanced 300 Mbps cell site in a commercial network at the Mobile World Congress 2014, Barcelona. CSL is also collaborating with Qualcomm and ZTE on testing a new LTE Advanced CAT6 modem using the Qualcomm Gobi 9x35 chipset, which is expected to be available commercially by the second half of this year.

This is an important milestone in the evolution of LTE and the mobile industry since it signals the initial rollout of LTE Advanced 300 Mbps on the CSL commercial network, which will continue throughout the year and beyond. CSL has combined its existing licensed 20 MHz LTE carrier at 2600 MHz with another licensed 20 MHz LTE carrier at 1800 MHz, to achieve a maximum theoretical speed of 300 Mbps. ZTE’s industry-leading carrier aggregation (CA) technology helps CSL leverage its unmatched spectrum to deliver game-changing 4G connectivity for consumers and corporations in Hong Kong. CSL is the only operator in Hong Kong today with sufficient FD-LTE spectrum to achieve the optimal theoretical speed of 300 Mbps with LTE-A.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
