Clearwire announced that it plans to conduct Long Term Evolution technology trials this fall. The focus of the tests will be to see how LTE co-exists with WiMax in the same market, on the same spectrum. Clear said that it will use FDD LTE and TDD LTE equipment from Chinese manufacturer Huawei, Samsung, and Beceem, among others. The trials will be conducted in the 2.4GHz to 2.6GHz bands, where Clearwire holds spectrum assets. Clearwire believes that its technology and spectrum holdings will lead to real-world speed improvements when compared to the LTE networks of other operators. Clearwire said it expects to reach download speeds between 20Mbps and 70Mbps, compared to the 5Mbps to 12Mbps, for example, that Verizon Wireless is expecting to deliver. Clearwire said that a large number of wireless network companies are participating in the trials, which are to take place this Fall and through the Winter of 2011 in Phoenix, Ariz.
