Nokia and MediaTek announced that they have achieved a world’s first by successfully aggregating 5G Standalone (5G SA) spectrum using 3 Components Carrier (3CC) aggregation. This increases the sub-6Ghz 5G spectrum utilisation by combining 210MHz of FDD and TDD spectrum more efficiently to reach 3.2Gbps peak downlink throughput.
Global satellite communications provider Inmarsat has unveiled Elera, a global narrowband network that it says is suited to IoT and for global mobility customers including aviation, maritime, governments, and select enterprises.
Nokia and Taiwan Mobile (TWM) announced that it has achieved what they claim is the world’s first New Radio Carrier Aggregation (NR CA) by combining spectrum in the 700MHz and 3500MHz bands.
Poking fun at Telstra by stating "You don’t need Australia’s fastest 5G… until you do", Optus aggregated its 5G spectrum bands of 3500Mhz and 28Ghz (mmWave) on top of existing 5G spectrum bands to deliver "unprecedented bandwidth and speed."
Demonstrating its 5G technology leadership, Optus reports achieving "another 5G milestone by combining 2100 MHz spectrum with 3500 MHz spectrum for the first time, through the use of 5G carrier aggregation and spectrum sharing technology, which will deliver customers with super-fast speeds and increased 5G coverage.”
US wireless provider Verizon, Swedish telecommunications equipment vendor Ericsson and processor maker Qualcomm Technologies have teamed up to demonstrate 5G peak speeds of 5.06Gbps under laboratory conditions.
Australia's second biggest telco Singtel Optus has teamed up with Swedish telecommunications equipment provider Ericsson to make what it claims is the world's first 2300 + 3500MHz 5G non-standalone carrier aggregation call.
Following Vodafone’s announcement this week of a successful Massive MIMO trial, Optus has announced what it claims is a world first pairing of Multiple Input Multiple Output and 3CC Carrier Aggregation technologies — 3CC Massive MIMO — in a live trial.
Optus has been ‘recognised for 4G network and spectrum innovation’ with an award for ‘outstanding contribution to 4G TDD technology and in particular, 4G TDD-FDD convergence.’
4G LTE-A speeds are getting a boost on Optus in Melbourne’s CBD, followed by Sydney CBD in early 2016 and both Brisbane and Adelaide’s CBDs from mid-2016.
Optus says it is the first telco in the world to deliver carrier aggregation on three separate mobile networks (3xCA), delivering download speeds of 317 Mbps.
Telstra has announced at its Investor Relations day that VoLTE is active on its 4G network, Video over LTE (ViLTE) is coming and super fast LTE-A trials have hit 590Mbps in its latest trial.
Vodafone has finally joined the LTE-A carrier aggregation bandwagon on 850 and 1800Mhz across its 4G metropolitan network, but is it as fast as Telstra?
Optus has potentially doubled mobile data speeds with its commercial introduction of carrier aggregation.
