Ericsson and Samsung Cooperate for LTE interoperability
LTE will transform the mobile-broadband user experience, providing the ultra-high data speeds anywhere, anytime.
Ericsson stated that they have together developed necessary procedures to accomplish this end to end integration program. Through extensive testing in Stockholm, Samsung LTE dongles and Ericsson's infrastructure have complied with the industry standard for commercial deployment, 3GPP Release 8 March baseline.
Johan Wibergh, senior vice president and head of networks at Ericsson, said: “This is the first time a commercial, standard compliant LTE device demonstrated full interoperability with a live network. It is an important milestone for Ericsson and the mobile industry. Ericsson looks forward to using our leadership in LTE technology to help our customers to move into a new era of communications, improving the user experience for their mobile broadband customers. The cooperation with Samsung has been successful and shows that LTE services soon will be ready for the market.”
Byungduck Cho, executive vice president of research and development centre for digital media and communications business in Samsung Electronics, said: “We are excited to announce the first commercial LTE device that is fully compliant with the standard and compatible with live LTE networks. This mobile device will take the user experience to the next level by offering users a full broadband Internet experience on a LTE infrastructure.”
