NSN has broken its own record and achieved world record TD-LTE throughput speeds of 1.6Gbps. The company used its commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station to receive and send data in simultaneous downlink and uplink connections. The speeds achieved could download a 3GB HD movie in just 24 seconds, while 1.7GB could be uploaded at the same time.

"We have been pushing the limits in 4G technology, and this time we have done so with 1.6 Gbps data throughput and increased uplink capacity. We are proud to be enabling the commercial readiness for LTE-Advanced and beyond," said Tommi Uitto, head of mobile broadband value creation management at Nokia Siemens Networks.

"Users want to be able to upload and download huge files, which underscores the need for operators to drastically increase data throughput and capacity in their mobile networks."

This record breaks NSN's own record of 1.3Gbps on TD-LTE. The company used 60MHz of aggregated spectrum with an 8-pipe radio module that allows for eight streams of uplink MU-MIMO.

"With our commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station and MU-MIMO, we are ready to help operators significantly increase per site capacity and uplink capacity at a reduced cost," added Uitto.
