Huawei claims "Beyond LTE" test over 30Gbps

updated 08:35 pm EDT, Mon March 26, 2012

Full details remain unclear

Huawei claims to have tested new network technology that is capable of handling data transfer speeds in excess of 30Gbps. The Chinese company suggests its "Beyond LTE" technology achieves such performance due to improvements in antenna structure, radio frequency architecture, algorithms and multi-user multi-input multi-output (MIMO) management.

Full details surrounding the network technology have yet to be disclosed, though the system is said to "meet wideband requirements." The wording raises questions regarding potential range limitations if the higher data speeds rely on wideband communication.

If the speed claims are true, and representative of real-world peak download speeds, the technology would be much faster than current LTE deployments, and nearly 10 times faster than theoretical peak speeds for LTE-Advanced.

Huawei has yet to provide a time estimate for commercial availability, or confirmation that the technology will be headed to the market. [via iTWire]

    Speed is of no use -

    if the battery gets drained too quickly.

    What's the power consumption like?
    Is it better than current LTE that requires a battery swap just to finish the day?
