Dublin – Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Signals Ahead: Gigabit LTE and 4CCA Benchmark Study” report to their offering.
Quantifying the Benefits of 3-Carrier CA with Support for up to 1 Gbps and the World’s First 4-Carrier CA Network
In this Signals Ahead report we provide results from the industry’s first independent and in-depth analysis of 4CCA and Gigabit LTE. For this study, we used the Telstra LTE network in Sydney, Australia.
Highlights of the Report include the following:
We tested with the NETGEAR Nighthawk M1 mobile router, configured to work with 4CCA or in 3CCA mode by locking the device to Band 28 and Band 7 (2 channels). We used a high bandwidth FTP server within the operator’s network (multi-session) to generate the data traffic.
Although data rates are interesting, and we include them in the report, we primarily focused on those performance metrics which reflect network efficiency. In particular, we looked at individual and combined use of 256-QAM and MIMO rank indicator (RI >=3). We included a wealth of other KPIs and their impact on performance in the study.
The results for 4CCA were pretty much as anticipated while we were greatly encouraged by our findings in the 3CCA tests, especially relative to our earlier studies we have done.
