Virginia-based nTelos Wireless and Alcatel-Lucent have accomplished an end-to-end Long Term Evolution (LTE) field trial in Waynesboro, Va.

Alcatel-Lucent provided 4G base stations (eNodeBs), the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), IP service routing network elements as well as operation, administration and maintenance (OAM) systems.
