Nokia, Ooredoo, China Mobile achieve 4.1Gbps with TDD-FDD carrier aggregation

9 Dec 2014

Nokia Networks, Ooredoo Qatar and China Mobile showcased a record-breaking speed of 4.1Gbps over LTE by combining TDD- and FDD-LTE spectrums and aggregating ten carriers with 200MHz bandwidth in a demonstration at the ITU Telecom World 2014 event in Doha, Qatar. The performance was achieved using: Nokia Networks’ commercial Single RAN Advanced hardware including the Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for high-capacity throughput; software to aggregate carriers on both TDD- and FDD-LTE spectrums; and LTE-Advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology. At the speed demonstrated, mobile users would be able to, for example, download a full-length 5GB high-definition (HD) movie in eleven seconds and simultaneously upload a five-minute 30MB video clip from a concert in less than a second.
