Deutsche Telekom pushes LTE speed to 1.2Gbps with Huawei

NEW DELHI: Deutsche Telekom and Huawei have accelerated mobile data transfer in Berlin's LTE network to more than 1.2 Gigabits per second (Gbps), achieving a technology mix of four sending and receiving channels (4x4 MIMO) and five carrier frequencies deployed live for the first time and proving LTE Advanced Pro (4.5G) gives the highest data speeds.

Deutsche Telekom and Huawei used the latest evolutionary step of this technology – LTE Advanced Pro (4.5G) – with a conventional mobile base station which was bundled with a small cell solution; the data traffic flowed over five carrier frequencies instead of just one. This required one thing above all from both the transmitter station and the receiving devices: they have to support 4x4 MIMO (multiple input – multiple output) technology. If all these components are used, individual users can enjoy peak speeds of more than 1 Gbps. Wireless capacities in the equipped cells are also improved greatly for all users.

The current move by Deutsche Telekom and Huawei represents the next step in a long-term innovation collaboration in the development of mobile communications technologies and the roll-out of Germany's fastest LTE network.

"User behavior is evolving rapidly on the way to a gigabit society.
That's why fast Internet access can't be limited to just fixed lines and fiber optics – our customers also want the highest possible speeds," said Deutsche Telekom AG Board Member for Europe and Technology Claudia Nemat.

Huawei Deutsche Telekom executive Lin Baifeng said, “Together, we innovate for the advanced wireless technology and Huawei is happy to support Deutsche Telekom to prove the benefits of LTE Advanced Pro (4.5G), in real field application.”
