Telekom Austria Tests LTE-Advanced

VIENNA -- A1 Telekom Austria, market leader on the Austrian telecommunications market, conducted a successful demonstration of LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation today using Nokia Siemens Networks current base station hardware. The live demo, which included handling large file transfers with a simultaneous video stream, showcased download speeds of 580 megabits per second (Mbps), far more than twice the current 4G LTE peak rates. “We continue to witness exponential growth in mobile broadband traffic and ever-increasing consumer demand for higher-quality data services,” said Marcus Grausam, CTO, A1 Telekom Austria. “To address these requirements and to lead the network evolution, we are committed to delivering the most advanced technologies. We chose Nokia Siemens Networks as our partner here since it has very good LTE stability along with high throughputs and short latencies. Together with Nokia Siemens Networks, a forerunner in both LTE and LTE-Advanced, we offer a glimpse of what we will achieve beyond today’s 4G network performance.” Nokia Siemens Networks
