Alcatel-Lucent and LG Electronics have completed Long Term Evolution (LTE) test calls using Alcatel-Lucent's LTE solution and mobile device prototypes from LG.

The tests demonstrated super high-speed data transmissions, validating the expected performance of LTE in the field and were conducted using both single antenna and multiple input/multiple output 2x2 configurations, transmitting over a 10MHz channel. This effort is part of a broader testing regime being conducted under the auspices of the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative, a group of operators and vendors established to ensure the rapid commercialization and easy interoperability of LTE systems.

"By using LTE equipment that was developed using a commercial wireless networking platformone that is in service in mobile operators' networks todayas well as early devices from one of the world's leading device vendors, we've been able to highlight the great progress that is being made in bringing LTE to market," said Mary Chan, Alcatel-Lucent's Wireless Networks.

The collaboration between Alcatel-Lucent and LG focuses on ensuring the early availability of a stable, open and fully integrated LTE ecosystem incorporating state-of-the-art infrastructure, innovative devices, and compelling applications. The collaboration covers areas including technical cooperation, interoperability testing, market research on applications and devices, and joint customer outreach. The two companies also are committed to fostering the rapid growth of a large and diverse LTE ecosystem, to ensure the availability of commercial LTE solutions and services by 2009.

The tests were carried out by Bell Labs researchers and product development teams in Alcatel-Lucent's facility in Stuttgart, Germany. These teams, in close collaboration with Bell Labs researchers and technologists around the globe, are leading the charge in developing the next-generation of wireless networking technologies such as LTE as well as future 4G networks.
