Optus gets first licence to penetrate 700MHz band

Hooks up with Huawei for LTE trial

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Optus has became the first Australian carrier to be awarded a licence to trial LTE services in the 700MHz spectrum band, a former analogue TV frequency.

The carrier has selected vendor Huawei to run an Australia-first trial of LTE technology in the band.

The 700MHz band is suited to LTE services, particularly for enhanced in-building coverage and reach in regional areas.

A trial network will be constructed in Bendigo, Victoria during October 2011 to test services and application on the Australia-first 700Mhz LTE network.

Huawei and Optus test high-speed mobile broadband applications including streaming high-definition video and video calls, as well as low-latency applications such as online games.

The trial will utilise Huawei’s SingleRAN technology, which allows operators to deliver 2G, 3G and LTE services from a single base station site.

Optus has been conducting LTE trials across various spectrum bands since early 2010. LTE tests have been publicly performed over the 2.1Mhz spectrum in Sydney and LTE trials across the 1800Mhz band were conducted in the second half of 2010. ®
