The “world’s first successful execution of a LTE Category 4 field trial on a commercial LTE network in Europe” was completed recently by China’s Huawei, with the field trial demonstrating download data rates of as much as 150 Mbps. ??

The trial was based on one LTE Category 4 device and one commercial LTE network deployed by Huawei in Europe. The LTE device made use of the industry’s first Hisilicon LTE multi-mode chipset to support LTE R9.

“The trial is an LTE industry milestone as it helps meet the requirements of fast data traffic growth in an era of mobile broadband and brings an unparalleled service experience to end users,” the manufacturer says.??

Adds Ying Weimin, Huawei’s president for GSM/UMTS/LTE wireless networks, “This commercial trial not only proves Huawei to be the world’s first vendor to support end-to-end LTE Category 4 solutions, but also consolidates Huawei’s leadership in LTE technology innovation.”? 

According to the latest Evolution to LTE Global Mobile Supplier Association report released last month, Huawei has launched 31 of the 64 commercial LTE networks operating today.?
