Devices:Nokia trials first internet modem supporting LTE

September 7, 2009 - NokiaPressServices

Nokia today introduced its first ever Long Term Evolution (LTE) capable internet modem, which is based on Nokia’s own LTE modem technology development.

The Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 is available to be used in LTE technology development with various network vendors, measurement equipment manufacturers and operators.

“Nokia is committed to supporting industry activities aimed at maturing LTE technology to enable the first commercial networks to launch in 2010,” says Jani Mäenpää, Project Manager, LTE/SAE Interoperability and Trials, Nokia. “Nokia is a

founding member in the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI) and carries out interoperability testing with a number of network vendors, collaborates with measurement equipment manufacturers and is ready to support operators with their LTE deployment activities. The Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 is used in all these activities.”

Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 supports interoperability with GSM/EDGE and WCDMA/HSPA to make the most out of the global GSM and WCDMA reach right from the start

Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 also supports multiple LTE frequency bands so is able to meet operators’ deployment plans across many different countries and

regions.

LTE vs Wimax Comparison (2) LTE Release 9 WiMAX Handheld terminals Yes, expected starting Unclear 2012

Points to Consider

Peak data rates are similar in HSPA/LTE and in WiMAX with the same amount of spectrum.

HSPA uses only FDD. WiMAX uses only TDD. LTE has harmonized FDD and TDD options. WiMAX is the only TDD solution now before TD-LTE is available by 2011 LTE will eventually be available on all existing WiMAX frequencies including 2300 and 3500. Low frequency FDD is better for coverage than high frequency TDD. HSPA900 and LTE800 are best for coverage. LTE has highest spectral efficiency, 20-50% more than HSPA or WiMAX

HSPA has the benefit of low cost terminals and smart phones like iPhone and Google G1.

HSPA and LTE are harmonized = all LTE terminals include HSPA. Same Flexi HW for HSPA and LTE. No such harmonization with WiMAX.

HSPA/LTE chips have in-built GSM/EDGE capability

HSPA/LTE has by far the largest device eco-system pushing prices down. WiMAX ecosystem looks less clear.
