In order to speed up the development and deployment of long term evolution networks in North America, today Nokia Siemens Networks announced that it is building a Next Gen Technology Lab in Dallas, Texas. The lab's goal is to support North American network operators as they begin to test and deploy LTE wireless networks. The lab will be the hub for all LTE trials in the U.S. and Canada with inaugural trials in the first quarter of 2009. Nokia Siemens Networks hopes the lab will accelerate the development of an LTE ecosystem and the adoption of LTE technology when the networks begin to go live.

Again another story about LTE. Phonescoop failed to show the same story about Samsung doing the WiMax network in Dallas which I read over a year ago. It was never posted on this website.

We can thank Sprint/Clearwire's WiMax

No matter how you feel about Sprint or WiMax, the truth is that they have forced the carriers to step up and play the game. LTE would have otherwise remained a slower process with less initiative. This is exciting and is the reason I am a huge WiMax advocate.
I completely agree! Wasn't it just a couple weeks ago that the forecast for LTE was still "a few years away"? In reality, I suppose that could still be the case for either technology. A rollout of this nature is definitely NOT an overnight gig! But, I...
