Nokia Siemens Networks, 4M Wireless in Telefonica O2 LTE Trials
24 January 2011 – London, United Kingdom – Nokia Siemens Networks, a global leader in telecommunication and 4M Wireless, the leading provider of LTE protocol stack software today announced that they are participating in Telefonica O2’s user trials in Germany. The LTE chipset used in the trials use the 4M Wireless stack and are capable of LTE throughputs of 100Mbps/50Mbps DL/UL respectively and support FDD/TDD LTE. O2 commenced the user program on December 2010 offering consumers LTE devices, SIMs and connections as part of its initiative to provide LTE technology to the wider market and shall start commercial LTE in the first half of 2011.
O2 has completed technical trials in Germany and aims to offer commercial 800MHz and 2.6GHz services. The carrier intends to expand its LTE network in 2011 to target fixed and mobile broadband. The technical field trials were planned and tiered in accordance with rigorous industry standards. O2 has now progressed to user trials several weeks ago in which it provides consumers with a terminal that includes the 4M Wireless LTE protocol stack. The terminal integrates LTE, wireless LAN and voice in a single device and the network partners include Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN).
With its award-winning, energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio Base Station – which has already been shipped to more than 200 carriers worldwide – and its comprehensive network concept, Nokia Siemens Networks is the technological leader in the LTE market. The company has also signed 22 commercial LTE contracts worldwide and is committed to creating next-generation networks.
The 4M Wireless PS100 LTE protocol stack software is fully compliant with the 3GPP LTE Release 8 specifications supporting FDD/TDD variants of LTE. 4M Wireless also provides a comprehensive toolset and GUI which allows engineers to take real-time measurements see end-to-end messages between the network and terminal and carry out live debugging. As a result engineers can easily identify and quickly resolve technical issues in the field. The 4M Wireless PS100 LTE stack is licensed in several commercial terminal baseband solutions in use worldwide and is also the only available cellular stack currently undergoing both FDD and TDD field trials in Europe, USA and Asia.
