Canberra, Australia: Huawei recently announced it had help Australian mobile operator Optus launch the world's first deployment of Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology on a live commercial LTE TDD (Long Term Evolution Time-Division) network with speeds hitting more than 160 Mb/s.

Vigilance learnt the live deployment has been rolled out across a number Optus' "4G Plus" sites in Melbourne, and follows an earlier trial of CA and other advanced technologies which saw speeds hit over 500 Mb/s on LTE TDD.

"Carrier Aggregation is an LTE-Advanced technology which combines multiple spectrum bands – it's the technological equivalent adding extra lanes to a highway, allowing for higher-speed data traffic," said Huawei Australia CTO Peter Rossi. "This project adds to Huawei's long list of world-first technology breakthroughs. By combining two or more channels or ‘carriers' on existing live commercial LTE spectrum bands, Optus can dramatically increase throughput on its mobile data network."

"Introducing LTE carrier aggregation into a live, commercial TD-LTE network is a world first and an exciting technology innovation for us," said Vic McClelland, Managing Director of Optus Networks. What's more exciting is that Optus customers will soon be able to experience the faster speeds and greater capacity our 4G Plus network and carrier aggregation can provide. With Australians becoming increasingly mobile data hungry, this innovation puts Optus in a great position to provide the network capacity needed to handle this growing data demand."
