Motorola has completed an over-the-air Long-Term Evolution (LTE) data sessions in the 700 MHz spectrum using its LTE Radio Access Test Network and LTE eNode-B platform with a prototype LTE device. This testing feat was conducted in Motorola labs as well as at an outdoor location in central Illinois.
The sessions included mobile streaming video and various high data rate applications. The demonstrations also included execution of applications priority which guarantees throughput using quality of service (QoS) aspects of the LTE standards.
“We are testing our 700 MHz and 2.6 GHz products, which are expected for first commercial release next year, in real-world environments to ensure our products will meet the needs of mobile carriers who want to be first to market with LTE,” said Darren McQueen, vice president, Wireless Broadband Access Technologies, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility.
