Nokia Siemens Networks Hits 100Mbps LTE Speeds
Nokia Siemens Networks recently announced that it has achieved the theoretical maximum Long Term Evolution speed of 100Mbps in lab tests. The call was made using Nokia Siemens Networks' LTE radio equipment and standards-compliant software and a pre-commercial Class 3 LTE USB modem from LG. The data call was made in the 2100MHz and 2600MHz frequency bands inside Nokia Siemens Networks' research facilities in Finland and Germany. According to Nokia Siemens Network, Class 3-type terminals will be available commercially later this year.
Other highlights. LG to Nokia components talking are good. Class 3 LTE Modems to be available later this year!
Of note: real world LTE is around 42 - 48 Mpbs. Still awesome!
All in all we are heading in the right direction.
Don't forget Cisco/Linksys has a satellite router tested and working, plus TerreStar has a GSM/Satellite phone running WinMo(data speeds to be determined). 4G in space will be fantastic, but data from space at great speeds is probably a 5G technology.
