The demonstrations were conducted using Ericsson’s Internet of Things (IoT) and VoLTE capable network infrastructure, IoT devices integrated with Qualcomm MDM9206 global multimode LTE IoT modems, and China Unicom’s radio spectrum and verification of the technology and multi-service capabilities.

SANTIAGO, June 29, 2017.- Nokia and Movistar Chile today held the first demonstration of 4.5G Pro in Latin America, reaching a speed of 1Gbps.

Swisscom is intensively driving forward the development of 5G and thus supporting the Swiss economy and society with digitisation. Swisscom will launch two new access technologies for the Internet of Things next year – Narrow Band-IoT and LTE Cat-M1. The two access technologies based on mobile telecommunications supplement the existing low power network (LPN).

The new maximum speed is tested in collaboration with Ericsson in Karuby, Siuntio, the fastest 4G village in Finland, where the theoretical maximum network speed has now reached one gigabyte per second (1 Gbps). The theoretical maximum speed is also important because it reveals the base station’s total capacity and enables higher actual average speeds for mobile network users. 
 

[Brasilia, Brazil, June 26, 2017] Recently, Claro Brazil launched the commercial 4.5G (4x4 MIMO+ Massive CA+256QAM) network in Brasilia in partnership with Huawei.
