Ericsson, TeliaSonera unveil world’s first commercial 4G/LTE site in Sweden

The new network claims to enhance data rates and reduce cost

By CBR Staff Writer

Ericsson and TeliaSonera have unveiled the world’s first commercial Long- Term Evolution (LTE) site in Sweden. The site will be part of a commercial network scheduled to go live in 2010.

The new network claims to bring data rates far above what is possible in today’s mobile broadband networks and is expected to enable users to stay connected and enjoy quality, online services even while on the move.

Ericsson is expected to provide TeliaSonera with an LTE system (4G), including LTE radio base stations, which are part of the new RBS6000 series, an evolved packet core network and mobile backhaul system, including Redback’s SmartEdge 1200 routers and the latest EDA multi-access aggregation switch. 

LTE is expected to transform the mobile-broadband user experience, providing the ultra-high data speeds needed for services such as internet TV, mobile video blogging, on-line video games and the mobile office environment. Ericsson has already demonstrated peak rates of 160Mbps. LTE can be deployed both in new and existing frequency bands and is reportedly designed to minimise the cost of network operation and maintenance.

Earlier in April, Ericsson and Telenor Sweden have announced the contract for Ericsson’s Business Communication Suite (BCS) which is expected to enhance multimedia experiences for Telenor’s enterprise customers in Sweden.
