Huawei completes world's first LTE-A uplink CoMP trial on multiple commercial LTE networks
Huawei, a global ICT provider, has announced that it has successfully conducted the world's first LTE-A uplink coordinated multi-point (CoMP) trial on several commercial LTE networks in Europe and Asia.
The world's first LTE uplink CoMP field trial demonstrates the capability of Huawei's No-Edge Network concept in enabling the best mobile broadband experience in terms of achievable download speeds. The results showed that uplink CoMP can effectively double data rates at cell edges for a single user, improving network performance in terms of coverage, spectrum efficiency and throughput.
At the 2012 Mobile World Congress, Huawei held demonstrations for the world's first LTE-A inter-band carrier aggregation (CA) and heterogeneous networks (HetNet), an example of Huawei's position as a pioneer for LTE and LTE-A technological innovation.
Huawei's strategy for LTE and LTE-A is focused on the development of efficient, sustainable and profitable mobile broadband networks that bring people an improved service experience.
'This is a key milestone for the LTE industry,' said Ying Weimin, Huawei president for GSM, UMTS, and LTE networks. 'Our No-Edge Network concept utilises various LTE, LTE-A and innovative future oriented technologies to realise ultra broadband, zero waiting and ubiquitous connectivity. This results in an enhanced experience and brings users the benefits of speed, quality and simplicity.'
