The system, based on commercial hardware, was operating on a test frequency provided by the PTS. This enabled Ericsson to demonstrate LTE Advanced functionality such as carrier aggregation of 3 x 20MHz (60MHz aggregated) over the air in a mobile environment for the first time. The first stages of LTE Advanced are expected to be in commercial operation in 2013.
LTE-Advanced will have a peak speed of 600 mbps and will begin deployment in Korea by 2014. LTE-Advanced enables users to download 700 MB-sized video file in 9.3 seconds.
