1 Jun 2018

Tunisie Telecom (TT) has completed a trial of LTE technologies in partnership with China’s Huawei, achieving single-user throughput of more than 700Mbps, the vendor announced in a press release. The trial used 4×4 MIMO (referred to as ‘4T4R’ by Huawei), carrier aggregation (CA) and 256QAM technologies.

TT CEO Fadhel Kraiem said: ‘Tunisie Telecom is keen to invest in more innovative technologies to offer the best user experience. I am glad that this test is a huge success, achieving all expected results. Spectrum resources are fully utilised to ensure that our network is more efficient. In addition, large-scale 4T4R network deployment allows us to be fully prepared for an evolution towards a new 5G era. We will continue to partner with Huawei in pursuing innovation to provide subscribers with a superb experience in Tunisia.’

Following the trial, TT signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Huawei for the deployment of the LTE upgrades on its network.
