ST-Ericsson and Ericsson announced a successful test of the LTE network. One of the smaller, but most important part of testing a new pipeline is to make sure that calls can go back and forth seamlessly between the different technologies; for now, VIOLA! Success. A mobile broadband phone call was made over the LTE network and was handed over to a HSPA network. The testing ensures that smooth switching can occur as one moves in and out of the LTE pipeline back and forth into 3G. Jörgen Lantto, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer ofST-Ericsson, said, "Seamless roaming between LTE and today’s networks is akey device capability to enable faster introduction of LTE." The device used in the test was a multi-mode LTE/HSPA unit powered by a chipset that is commercially available today. Mr. Lantto added that, "With multimode devices consumers can enjoy new high-speed mobilebroadband services and global coverage right from the launch of LTEservices."
