4G speed record smashed with 1.4 Gigabits-per-second mobile call
Nokia Siemens Networks boosts data rate for LTE-Advanced on 100 MHz spectrum, using commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station.
With 52 commercial LTE customers around the world more than any other vendor Nokia Siemens Networks is familiar with 4G leadership. But even its mobile broadband experts were impressed when they earlier this month achieved world record data speeds exceeding 1.4 Gbps using an LTE-Advanced (4G) system on 100 MHz of aggregated spectrum.
The calls, involving huge file transfers and HD video streaming, hit peaks of 1.429 Gigabits-per-second. Although not aiming to replicate the feat in Barcelona, the breakthrough supports the companys claim to being the mobile broadband specialist at Mobile World Congress 2012.
Moments such as these only come once, said Marc Rouanne, the companys head of Network Systems. Taking advanced technologies such as LTE-Advanced to a higher level is hugely satisfying. This work shows the potential for operators moving to LTE and beyond to deliver ubiquitous mobile broadband that truly delights people. The fact that this world record has been achieved using our commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is just another proof of our platforms superior capacity.

Todays 4G world record and everything we do at the event underscores our focus on leadership in mobile broadband. Its this focus that our customers will take away from their visits to our Experience Center, Rouanne said.
