ESPOO, Finland -- Nokia and SK Telecom have again demonstrated the unparalleled benefits of converging the TDD and FDD LTE spectrum. By aggregating 10 spectrum frequencies allocated for both LTE variants for a massive 200 MHz of bandwidth, Nokia and SK Telecom reached a throughput speed of 3.78 Gbps. At this speed, a mobile broadband user can download a full-length 5 GB high-definition (HD) movie in just 11 seconds.

“This significant throughput achievement builds on our long-term collaboration with Nokia to make the most of TDD-FDD converged technologies. It is also a proofpoint of our continued leadership in providing the fastest connections and the highest quality for subscribers who use advanced data services,” said Alex Jinsung Choi, Executive Vice President and Head of ICT R&D Division at SK Telecom. “Once again, SK Telecom and Nokia have set a benchmark for the global telecoms industry.”

The unmatched throughput was achieved with Nokia’s Single RAN solution including the high-capacity Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, enhanced with software to aggregate carriers on both TDD and FDD LTE spectrum and to implement LTE-Advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology. With this demonstration, Nokia and SK Telecom have pushed the boundaries of carrier aggregation by successfully achieving twice the amount of carriers and bandwidth specified by 3GPP, which foresees the aggregation of 5 carriers up to a total bandwidth of 100 MHz.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
