Nokia trials LTE Internet modem Nokia has revealed its first Internet modem supporting Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. LTE is generally marketed as 4G, since it is the last step toward the 4th generation of radio technologies designed for mobile networks. It is a set of enhancements to the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UTMS) to be introduced in 3GPP Release 8.
Nokia's Internet Modem RD-3 supports interoperability with GSM/EDGE and WCDMA/HSPA to make the most out of the global GSM and WCDMA reach right from the start. "Nokia is committed to supporting industry activities aimed at maturing LTE technology to enable the first commercial networks to launch in 2010," says Jani Menp, Project Manager, LTE/SAE Interoperability and Trials, Nokia.

He continued: "Nokia is a founding member in the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI) and carries out interoperability testing with a number of network vendors, collaborates with measurement equipment manufacturers and is ready to support operators with their LTE deployment activities. The Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 is used in all these activities."

LTE is considered a major step in the direction of providing wireless IP-based real-time multimedia services for consumers, providing the benchmark for high data rates and low response times. It has the potential to offer a rich broadband Internet experience when a fixed line connection is not available, and is an enormous improvement over today's current mobile broadband products.
