Globe showcases their LTE-CA technology with speeds of up to 220 Mbps and the new LTE Broadcast (eMBMS) in a demo led by Globe Head for Network Technologies Strategy Manny Estrada and Senior Advisor for Product Planning Ashish Pilani together with Huawei Senior Account Manager Jordy Cao.
To celebrate Globe Innovation Month, which aims to advocate the development of innovative products and services, Globe showcases the latest LTE technologies.
These technologies enable Globe to stay ahead of their customers’ data requirements amid the increasing use of bandwidth-intensive applications.
At the Globe Innovation Forum (GIF) Globe demonstrated its ongoing Proof-of-Concept Trials on LTE-CA (Carrier Aggregation) and LTE eMBMS (enhanced Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Service) or LTE Broadcast.
The LTE CA technology dramatically increases efficient utilization of frequencies, enabling mobile operators to use non-contiguous blocks of spectrum in multiple frequency bands to achieve higher bandwidths to meet growing demand for wireless broadband services.
LTE eMBMS, meanwhile, promises efficient delivery of video and multimedia services over a telco’s LTE network. The technology will be commercially available within 2015 in select areas.
