Nokia Siemens Networks has announced that they are first to complete a multi-user field trial in an urban environment using the new Long TermEvolution (LTE).The increasedusage of multimedia wireless services sets the pattern of the necessity forfaster data transfer rates. In the recent years the need for higher speeds haslead to a great deal of improvements. Nothing like the 173Mbps that NokiaSiemens Networks managed to demonstrate at the LTE test site has been achieved before(160Mbps is what they got a year ago). Inorder to obtain data about LTE performance in an actual urban environment thetest was conducted in Berlin by placing an LTE base station on top of theHeinrich Hertz Institut. Then the LTE test terminals were driven up to 1km awayto measure the LTE cell’s coverage and throughput. In the U.S., Verizon Wireless has announced, that LTE is going to be their choice of 4G standard. AT&T has also expressed interest in theLTE technology. They are supposed to start a trial in partnership with Vodafonein 2008.
