SK Telecom and first Tri-band LTE-A Service
SK Telecom has demonstrated 428 Mbps data transmission rates through the industry’s first TD-LTE 3xCA with 256 QAM.

The demonstration was supported by telecom network vendor Nokia Networks and Snapdragon X12 LTE modem from Qualcomm Technologies – paving the way for the introduction of TD-LTE in Korea.

The trial verifies the benefits of 3xCA combined with 256 QAM-capable devices that can boost the peak throughput from 110 Mbps to 428 Mbps.

Nokia Network’s Single RAN Advanced platform provides a foundation for SK Telecom to build TD-LTE network capable of addressing the demand for bandwidth-intensive services.

Nokia Network and SK Telecom will be establishing a TD-LTE test bed and conducting trials of TD-LTE services.

“This initiative underlines our unwavering focus on harnessing technology to deliver data services to our subscribers,” said Jin-hyo Park, head of Network Technology R&D Center, SK Telecom.
