Leading Bangladeshi mobile phone operator, Robi Axiata and Ericsson have successfully completed the trial of LTE technology in the capital city, Dhaka.
The trial was conducted to demonstrate the operator’s readiness for introducing LTE services in the country. The trial was performed using the latest commercial end-user device and combined carrier of 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz bands.
Ericsson LTE 16B solution with radio RRUS 12 and baseband 5216 were used to carry out the trial. The LTE technology trial successfully showcased how a common user may experience the high-speed mobile broadband of 90 Mbps and above.
Ericsson and Robi are going to run similar trials in other cities of Bangladesh shortly. In addition to ensure readiness for the launch of 4G services, the trials are being conducted to demonstrate, how this technology can facilitate the end user in experiencing broadband applications such as High Definition (HD) TV and video conferencing services.
