Telstra, in collaboration with NETGEAR, Ericsson and Qualcomm is bringing the world’s first 4G LTE Advanced Category 11 (Cat 11) capable network and devices that can support theoretical maximum speeds of 600Mbps to its customers in Australia. The early Cat 11 enabled footprint is concentrated on the CBD’s of Eastern Seaboard capital cities, initially Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra, and in selected popular holiday locations.

The Telstra WiFi 4GX Advanced III Mobile Broadband Hotspot is the latest ultra-fast mobile broadband device to join Telstra’s product range and uses 3 band Carrier Aggregation technology. The latest innovation by Telstra is powered by a combination of Qualcomm Snapdragon X12 LTE modem with Qualcomm VIVE 11ac, Ericsson’s LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation technology on its 4G network, and the NETGEAR AirCard® 810S. The mobile Wi-Fi hotspot which can support up to 15 devices can automatically switch between 4GX, 4G and 3G coverage in areas where 4GX is not yet available. 

Last month, the largest mobile operator in Australia launched the first Cat 9 (450Mbps) devices on its 4G advanced network. 

John Chambers, Executive Director, Mobile, at Telstra
This is the world’s first commercially available Cat 11 experience and is a breakthrough addition to our mobile device range thanks to our ongoing partnerships with these leaders in innovation.
