NSN carries out LTE trial in Berlin

TeleGeography
Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) is carrying out field trials of long term evolution (LTE) and MIMO (multiple input/multiple output) technology in Berlin, aiming to achieve mobile internet/data speeds of up to 173Mbps. The trial is being run in partnership with the Heinrich Hertz research institute using an LTE base station in the city centre which uses 20MHz of spectrum in the 2.6GHz frequency band.

Just wonder, what is the difference between this trials and trials NS had in December http://www.phonenews.com/nokia-siemens-completes-first-real-world-lte-trial-in-berlin-2503/

I'm guessing this trial is a continuation of the trial in December 07. At the end of the article that you mentioned, it reads, "The base station will remain in its current installation throughout 2008 to further refine and conduct more real world testing of LTE based networks."

Yes, I saw it, bit I didn't see any achievements or results of this trials which are different. Before it was 160/173Mbps (different sources), now 173MBps, the radious of van going around the station is different but is it something important and worth to publish? :-)

I agree this article is pretty trivial but I just wanted to keep track of all the relevent LTE news out there. Thanks for your observation.
