Verizon Wireless, Nokia and Qualcomm Technologies have achieved peak LTE download speeds of 1.45Gbps in a live commercial environment using six-channel carrier aggregation (CA). The trial, which took place in New York, used a combination of licensed PCS (1900MHz) and AWS (1700MHz) frequencies, and four separate channels of Licence Assisted Access (LAA) spectrum.

The demonstration, which also featured 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM functionality, was powered by Nokia’s AirScale base station and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X24 LTE modem.
