A new world record has been set after Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) achieved time division long-term evolution (TD-LTE) data speeds of 1.3 Gbps at a live demonstration.
Using its commercial Flexi base station hardware, the Finalnd-based vendor surpassed the previous record for the 4G mobile broadband technology.
The feat was carried out at a IT show in Beijing in China.
It has also emerged that NSN is the first company to complete the first two phases of field testing for China Mobile's (CMCC) TD-LTE.
Markus Borchert, NSN's greater China president, said: "Our record-breaking mobile broadband speeds, coupled with the successful completion of CMCC's TD-LTE field tests, clearly underline Nokia Siemens Networks' commitment to strengthen the TD-LTE ecosystem in China.
"As the world's specialist in mobile broadband, we will continue to drive TD-LTE innovations and commercial deployments across the globe."
The company says it is now capable of delivering a range of TD-LTE services both locally and remotely.
