Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs conducts world-first field demonstration of Coordinated Multipoint Transmission (CoMP) on LTE network

Source: Alcatel-Lucent press release
Alcatel-Lucent today announced that Bell Labs, its research arm -- in cooperation with Deutsche Telekom Laboratories, the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institut, and antenna supplier Kathrein -- has conducted the industry’s first live field tests of Coordinated Multipoint Transmission (CoMP) a new technology that will increase data transmission rates and help ensure consistent service quality and throughput on Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless broadband networks as well as on 3G networks. By coordinating and combining signals from multiple antennas, CoMP, will make it possible for mobile users to enjoy consistent performance and quality when they access and share videos, photos and other high-bandwidth services whether they are close to the center of an LTE cell or at its outer edges.
