Cox demonstrates voice calling, HD video over LTE

Tuesday 26 January 2010 | 09:08 CET | News
US cable operator Cox Communications has successfully tested voice calling and high definition video streaming over wireless networks using LTE technology. Cox collaborated with Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei to conduct the trials and test the services and applications. Cox's trials use the AWS and 700 MHz spectrum that it acquired at Federal Communication Commission auctions in 2006 and 2008. Cox spent over USD 550 million for radio spectrum licences to support its mobile plans, which include wireless broadband. Cox conducted the trials in Phoenix and San Diego and chose these markets for the advanced technology-orientation of its residential and business customers, as well as the terrain and suburban density variances of the markets' geographies. At the same time, Cox is initially deploying mobile services using the 3G standard in Hampton Roads (Virginia), Orange County (California) and Omaha (Nebraska).
