Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) and Ericsson will trial License Assisted Access (LAA) on Singtel’s network starting March. The trial is part of the partners’ MoU to study the future of 5G networks and its applications for both consumers and enterprises.

The LAA mobile technology is designed to unlock the unlicensed spectrum for LTE, and enable data speed boosts by applying LTE efficiencies to boost licensed spectrum. It is an integral component of ongoing 5G studies for the use of higher frequency bands and licensed-unlicensed band aggregation to improve indoor app coverage for smartphone users.

Ericsson is adding LAA to its indoor small cell portfolio, the Ericsson Radio Dot System and RBS 6402 Indoor Picocell.
