Ericsson, Telstra and Qualcomm have successfully completed a 2Gbps capable LTE data call using Telstra’s live commercial network in the regional centre of Toowoomba in Queensland. 

“We are pleased to be working with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies on what is another example of how Telstra is innovating at the cutting edge of mobile technology,” said Channa Senevirante, Telstra’s Executive Director of Network and Infrastructure Engineering.

“Success in 5G will depend on strong underlying 4G technology, and this world first call over Telstra’s commercial network is an important step forward in the development of 5G.” 

“We now have the commercial end-to-end network capability to deliver such world-leading LTE speeds and will now begin to deploy this technology in our mobile network to support even greater capacity and faster mobile speeds for our customers where it is needed most,” added Senevirante.

This live LTE data call was achieved using Qualcomm Technologies’ mobile test device powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE modem, and an Ericsson Radio System solution running all five carriers from one Baseband 6630.

“Gigabit LTE has enabled our operators to give a big boost to their customers, and 2Gbps LTE technology further improves 4G network capability, which is an essential enabler for early deployment of 5G,” said Emilio Romero, Ericsson’s Managing Director Australia and New Zealand.

“We are working with two consistent innovators, Telstra and Qualcomm Technologies, to deliver this world-leading capability in Australia and building greater alignment in the ecosystem for leading operators like Telstra, and device manufacturers to plan for these enhanced world-leading speeds.”

Telstra customers will be able to purchase 2Gbps LTE technology enabled devices in early 2019.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
