Huawei and Telecom Italia Completes Italy' s First LTE Test to Demonstrate Ultrabroadband Mobile Technology

November 27, 2009 - Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, announced the completion of a joint LTE (Long Term Evolution) test with Telecom Italia (TI). Using 14 LTE cells on the existing mobile broadband infrastructure in Turin, the test successfully showcased a downlink speed of over 140Mb/s per cell, demonstrated by three simultaneous connections.

This high transmission capability will allow new services on the next-generation mobile broadband networks, such as high definition video call.

Mr. Sandro Dionisi, Head of TILab said, "This first technological trial with Huawei represents a very important goal in the development of the network technology LTE/SAE towards the expectations of Telecom Italia. The results reached so far reinforce our partnership with Huawei and the joint commitment in deploying the LTE technology that will continue also next year. "

"This demonstration reflects our commitment to accelerate LTE commercialization and to realize seamless end-to-end mobile broadband connectivity through continued investment in the technology." said David Wang, Managing Director of Huawei Italy.
