Nokia Siemens Networks Sets TD-LTE Speed Record

Nokia Siemens Networks claims to have achieved world record TD-LTE throughput speeds of 1.6 Gigabits per second (Gbps). In the demonstration, the company used its commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station to receive and send data in simultaneous downlink and uplink connections, reaching an overall speed of 1.6 Gbps.

The speed record was achieved at the Nokia Siemens Networks lab in Arlington Heights, Illinois, USA.

In the new record, the company used 60 MHz of aggregated spectrum with an 8-pipe radio module that enables eight streams of uplink MU-MIMO.

With this approach though, Nokia Siemens Networks is taking TD-LTE beyond the LTE-Advanced specifications that require only four streams of uplink MU-MIMO.
