Ooredoo Qatar, China Mobile demo 4.1 Gbps speed over TDD-FDD LTE network

Nokia Networks, Ooredoo Qatar and China Mobile showcased speed of 4.1 Gbps over TDD-FDD LTE network at the ITU Telecom World 2014.

The three telecom industry stakeholders achieved the record speed by combining TDD-LTEand FDD-LTE spectrums and aggregating 10 carriers with 200 MHz bandwidth.

The mobile Internet speed will enable end users to download a 5 GB high-definition (HD) movie in 11 seconds and simultaneously upload a 5-minute 30 MB video clip from a concert in less than a second.

China Mobile and Ooredoo Qatar used Nokia Networks’ Single RAN Advanced hardware including the Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for high-capacity throughput; software to aggregate carriers on both TDD- and FDD-LTE spectrums and LTE-Advanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology.

By deploying our advanced LTE network in Qatar, we are truly laying the foundation for the future.”

Madam Huang Yuhong, deputy general manager of China Mobile Research Institute and Secretary General of Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) said: “This throughput is a milestone that boosts our efforts as we drive the commercialization and globalization of TD-LTE and TDD-FDD converged technology across the globe.”
