Telstra has achieved 4G speeds of up to 2 Gbps in lab testing using a new commercially announced chipset. Telstra conducted this test togetherwith its partners Ericsson, NETGEAR and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
The extraordinary high speeds were achieved using Ericsson’s Baseband 6630, Radio 4415, and latest Gigabit LTE network software. The operator achieved this speeds by aggregating five 20 MHz LTE carriers across three different frequency bands with each carrier using 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM technologies.
The demonstration saw 2Gbps speeds achieved by aggregating 100MHz of spectrum across the bands 1, 3 and 7, using a NETGEAR Nighthawk mobile router equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE modem, the world’s first-announced Category 20 LTE modem.
Serge Willenegger, Senior Vice President and General Manager, 4G/5G and Industrial IoT, Qualcomm Wireless GmbH said, “By setting this major industry milestone, we’re helping mobile operators fully mobilize their spectrum assets and maximize the capacity of their Gigabit LTE networks and allowing mobile device makers to offer consumers a preview of new services soon expected to be enabled with 5G networks.”
