Faster Wireless Performance
Packet One Networks Malaysia Sdn Bhd (“P1”) showcased the world’s first WIMAX-Long Term Evolution Time Division Duplex (LTE TDD) live demonstration to members of the media at their 2011 Media Retreat in Port Dickson recently.
“With the perpetual data tsunami that the world is gradually experiencing, we’re excited that our customers will in the near future be able to embrace it by leveraging on the power of WiMAX and LTE technologies,” P1 CEO Michael Lai said.
“WiMAX has enabled P1 to become a 4G leader. Our next step is to be the first to harness the co-existence between WiMAX and LTE so that we can offer our customers the best of both worlds. P1’s 4G journey over the last two and a half years is a valuable asset to the 4G technology evolution roadmap. Ultimately, our customers’ best interest is at the top of our minds. We simply want the best for them (customers). P1’s next step is combining the power of WiMAX and LTE that will further enrich lives by providing truly mobile and personal Internet.”
The demonstration was led by ZTE Corporation, P1’s 4G network partner as well as leading telecommunications equipment and network solutions provider. It showcased for the first time that WiMAX and LTE technologies can be supported on the same platform and the ease of transitioning from WiMAX to the LTE network. Both technologies were demonstrated on the 2.3GHz spectrum. On the peak downlink throughput in a cell, the demo reached an impressive 130Mbps on a 20MHz band. The upgrade can be performed in just 30 minutes for each base station, allowing the operator to continuously function in affected upgrade areas.
