Huawei said telecom network operator 3 Hong Kong has achieved download speeds of 1Gbps on FDD+TDD and 4.5G (TDD+) network by utilizing 60MHz of spectrum.

3 Hong Kong owns blocks of spectrum across the 900MHz, 1800MHz, 2100MHz, 2300MHz and 2600MHz bands.
The 4.5G (TDD+) solution includes features such as four component carrier (4CC) carrier aggregation (CA), 4X4 Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) multi-antenna technology and 256 quadrature amplitude modulation (256 QAM) to boost network capacity and peak download rates.

“We plan to re-farm our 900 MHz and 2100 MHz spectrums for LTE network deployment to develop a 5CC LTE-A network, boosting the peak download rate to around 1.3 Gbps,” said Peter Wong, CEO and group managing director of HTHKH.

Huawei in a statement said its One LTE solution is a way for 3 Hong Kong to utilize its spectrum and maximize bandwidth for providing better user experience. The technology allows 3 Hong Kong to integrate FDD and TDD networks through a multi-mode and multi-band SingleRAN platform, significantly improving network capacity and coverage as well as lowering operating costs (Opex).

At the Global Mobile Broadband (MBB) Forum 2015 in Hong Kong, 3 Hong Kong also showcased a smartphone compatible with FDD+TDD 3CC CA technology at a 4.5G (TDD+) demonstration took place in Causeway Bay.
