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.
