Crnogorski Telekom and Ericsson Nikola Tesla have for the first demonstrated in Montenegro LTE Advanced technology – solution with carrier aggregation. With this testing, for the first time in Montenegro peak downlink was approx. 300 Mb/s. LTE Advanced technology enables higher data speeds to increase network capacity and enhance end-user experience.

Crnogorski Telekom together with Ericsson Nikola Tesla is testing inter-band Carrier Aggregation on test Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) network. With this testing, for the first time in Montenegro downlink was up to 300 Mb/s. The trial was carried out in real network conditions. Carrier Aggregation will provide more efficient use of the spectrum across two or more channels. In the trial, two 20MHz channels were used, in the 1800 and 2600MHz bands.
Crnogorski Telekom has been testing Carrier Aggregation in its network aiming to use it commercially as soon as possible. Carrier Aggregation is the best known and widely used technique of the LTE Advanced standard combining disparate bands of the spectrum to create wider channels, offering increased capacity and faster speeds.
“For our users, a need for Internet access increases, everywhere and always, not only at work and at home. With trial launch of our 4G+ network we have made an important step towards meeting the users’ needs and expectations. We have, in the trial, achieved fastest speeds in mobile network in Montenegro and by this we have once more confirmed our continuous focus on innovations and technology development. All this confirms that our company is the first and right choice when it comes to advanced services in communications. During trial, a parallel transmission of several Ultra HD video content, different types of data, online interactions and video conferences was made. New, advances technology enables doubling the theoretical network speeds by combining two different spectra.” says Vladan Peković, Chief Technology and Information Officer in Crnogorski Telekom.
Ericsson is the LTE market leader. Today, 50 percent of the world's LTE Smartphone traffic is served by Ericsson networks which is more than double the traffic of the closest competitor. Ericsson is present in all high traffic LTE markets including US, Japan, South Korea, Australia and Canada, and has been selected by the top 10 LTE operators as ranked by LTE subscription worldwide.
