Thursday 5 March 2015 | 12:14 CET | News
ZTE, China Mobile and Qualcomm Technologies have successfully demonstrated time-division long term evolution (TD-LTE) downlink three-carrier aggregation (3x CA). The demo was conducted using ZTE's TD-LTE eNodeB and evolved packet core (EPC) devices, based on terminals powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with X10 LTE modem. Three 20 MHz carriers in the 2.6GHz time division duplexing (TDD) frequency band were aggregated, and the downlink data throughput rate reached 330Mbps. According to ZTE, this shows that 3x CA is mature and can meets commercial deployment requirements.
