    LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation Deployments: Peak Speeds

    Operators worldwide are investing in LTE-Advanced systems and peak speeds are increasing. GSA's Evolution to LTE report published on 9 April 2015 confirmed that 116 operators i.e. 30% of LTE operators, have launched, or are deploying or are trialling LTE-Advanced technologies in 55 countries. This figure includes 64 operators that have commercially launched LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation in 39 countries. This paper from GSA summarises the theoretical peak downlink speed for each of the commercially launched LTE-Advanced networks worldwide, according to research by GSA. With a focus on Category 6 systems (theoretical peak downlink speed >…

    Sunsight Instruments – RF Antenna Misalignment Effects on 4G

    RF Antenna Misalignment Effects on 4G/LTE Data Throughput Considerations for Maximizing Return on your Spectrum Investments Sunsight Instruments Technical White Paper Abstract This technical paper describes in detail the need for ensuring that the antenna position closely matches RF design specification at installation, and to have an accurate database of antenna position data for any wireless data network. We will discuss why proper alignment of antennas used in RF (Radio Frequency) mobile networks is important–specifically for newer technologies like 4G LTE, and describe the effect of misalignment on overall network data throughput. Network operators, engineers,…

    Status of the LTE Ecosystem

    This updated report, which was researched and published by GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association) and published on April 20, 2015 confirms the maturity and fast growing ecosystem of LTE user devices. This latest research increased to 2,919 the number of LTE user devices included in our database which have been announced to the market by 297 suppliers. Support for each of the main operating FDD and TDD frequency bands is stated. LTE1800 (Band 3) is the best supported band and has the largest LTE devices ecosystem. The number of LTE devices i.e. 2,919 as confirmed…
