The FDD and TDD LTE networks are converging for the upcoming 5G era. Although many operators have deployed TDD and FDD networks in different kinds of topologies and configurations, the key to convergence is the carrier aggregation between TDD and FDD. This webinar will provide details on different topologies and carrier aggregation current progress. Shared spectrum trends and the latest advancements will be covered with special focus given to US 3.5GHz CBRS band spectrum and how 3.5GHz global interest is further fueling the convergence of the network to deliver high-capacity, high-throughput, and spectral efficiency. In addition, the 5G-like experience from 3D Beamforming using Massive MIMO antennas in the TDD spectrum will be highlighted – a low-hanging fruit for many operators for 3x capacity and high throughput. TD-LTE is playing an important role for the next milestone of 1Gbit/s throughput. Investment using Nokia 4.5G Pro TD-LTE will help to deliver 1 Gbit/s and pave the path for 5G.
