    Clearwire: WiMax (yuk), LTE-Advanced (booyahh)

    ... The Ericsson tests went well beyond Clearwire's Phoenix LTE tests, which used parallel, 20mhz channels on vanilla LTE to achieve 90-megabit speeds on a live, but empty network:

    ... and there's no reason to believe that the Phoenix test net won't serve as the model by which they'll deploy TD-LTE next year.

    The ericsson test was LTE-Advanced, however, which will allow Clearwire to switch off such dual, 20mhz channels and run single, aggregated channels that'll likely be 40 to 60 mhz wide...

    ... in fact, Clearwire has so much spectrum that they could run "dual", 60 mhz channels... each one identical to ericsson's test. That's massive capacity given CLWR's network density.

    This is not a pump... there are hurtles to overcome for sure... such as power consumption for a big starter and device radio capacities...

    ... but with China Mobile and practically the entire Indian subcontinent looking to totally replicate Clearwire's transmission model, I imagine the device makers will be falling all over themselves to accomodate it at 2.5 ghz.

    • I was just hoping for an answer to if ALU has a future. Or does China Mobile and Ericsson take all their business?

      • Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent won more of the emerging market for LTE wireless network technology in the third quarter, helped by their strong position in the United States, researcher Dell'Oro said.

        Ericsson controlled 44 percent of the $647 million market in the third quarter, while Alcatel's share rose to 30 percent, Dell'Oro said on Wednesday.

        U.S. operators Verizon Wireless and AT&T are the first major operators to build large LTE networks, with Ericsson and Alcatel supplying gear to both carriers.

        China's Huawei, a distant No 3 on the market, saw its share shrinking to 8 percent, with Nokia Siemens Networks the fourth.

        Equipment vendors are trying to win as many early LTE deals as possible to use them as a reference for other deals.

        Operators are expected to invest tens of billions of euros over coming years in the new LTE networks which will offer faster data transfer and additional capacity for their crammed airwaves.

        ?Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile say that they have successfully completed the first call over a trial TD-LTE network deployed in the city of Shanghai.

        Alcatel-Lucent's end-to-end LTE solution in Shanghai is an element of the large-scale Td-lte trial formed by the China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and China Mobile and involving several different infrastructure suppliers.

        The Shanghai network includes the high-tech park of Zhangjiang and financial district of Lujiazui, which China Mobile and the Shanghai Government want to make a leading demonstration zone of TD-LTE technology. The successful completion of this first call is a major milestone in realizing this goal.

        "We are excited to be able to collaborate with China Mobile and demonstrate our leadership in TD-LTE on this important trial network. The first call takes us a step closer in delivering a high-quality network that will provide faster wireless services and applications to the people of Shanghai," said Rajeev Singh-Molares, president of Alcatel-lucent 's activities for Asia-Pacific.

        Alcatel-Lucent and China Mobile further enhanced their relationship in April of this year by announcing a joint research program to pioneer developments in next generation mobile communications, including further co-development of Alcatel-Lucent's Lightradio solution.

    • Indeed, booyah!!!!

      Plus, big news out also that clwr got their monies to's all over the needs, Schwab, Yahoo...etc...

      this is happening within a blink of an it what you may...but it sure as heck lots upppp from here.
