SINGAPORE -- Marking a Southeast Asia-first milestone, Singapore's second-largest mobile operator, StarHub, today successfully demonstrated 600Mbps peak download speeds using Nokia Networks' 4X4 MIMO technology with LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation in a technical trial conducted at its headquarters. Future mobile networks will need to use massive MIMO technologies to address hundreds of thousands of data applications sharing the same network, each with its own requirements.
The 600Mbps data transmission speeds were achieved through combined 4x4 MIMO technology, along with Carrier Aggregation, to reach LTE-Advanced data speeds.
In addition, StarHub and Nokia Networks have successfully tested 3-band carrier aggregation using a commercial mobile device. The successful trials of 4x4 MIMO and multiband carrier aggregation pave the way towards even faster mobile broadband in future.
