Broadcom And NSN Demonstrate Category 6 LTE-Advanced 300 Mbps On Live Commercial Network From Elisa

Stocks in this article: BRCM

IRVINE, Calif. and ESPOO, Finland, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) and Finnish operator Elisa today announced the first ever demonstration of LTE Advanced (LTE-A) carrier aggregation Category 6 (Cat 6) data rates of 300 Mbps on a live commercial network in the Nordic Countries. The achievement represents an important milestone for all three companies with the goal of delivering a superior mobile experience to consumers.

The end-to-end test was completed on Elisa's commercial LTE network in Finland with Broadcom's LTE-A Cat 6 technology using inter-band carrier aggregation and NSN's Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station. The test was performed by aggregating two 20 MHz channels in the 1800 MHz band (LTE Band 3) and the 2600 MHz band (LTE Band 7) to reach speeds of 300 Mbps. 

"LTE-A Category 6 is the number one priority for operators as they look to deploy the next speed enhancement to their networks," said Robert Rango, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Mobile and Wireless Group, Broadcom. "The success of this test demonstrates Broadcom's ability to engineer advanced LTE modem features to address stringent carrier requirements for speed and interoperability."

"This live network demonstration with 300 Mbps mobile data speed is a great example of possibilities of the mobile technology. It's a major step towards delivering the best possible experience to our customers. In addition to the extremely high maximum data speeds, it will also offer much more capacity for mobile broadband customers," said Dr. Eetu Prieur, Head of Access Networks from Elisa.

"This test underlines the strong partnership between Elisa and NSN, one that dates back to the world's first GSM network," said Petteri Terho, Account Director at NSN in Finland. "After jointly building LTE networks on 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz, NSN enabled the operator to launch Finland's first 800 MHz LTE network in January this year. Now, in collaboration with Broadcom we have showcased how our technical expertise and best-in-class equipment can help Elisa address subscriber demands in the future." 

Broadcom will demonstrate LTE-A Cat 6 data rates on NSN infrastructure at the upcoming Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, February 24-27.
