Ericsson is one of a swathe of vendors conducting trials for the next generation of mobile technology — long-term evolution (LTE).
Tucked into a conference room in an unassuming Port Melbourne office block is Ericsson's LTE Global Competence Centre. The centre includes a full installation of the same gear Ericsson has used in commercial deployments with TeliaSonera (in Sweden and Norway), MetroPCS, AT&T and Verizon, in a high-security equipment room somewhere on the premises. The gear has a small transmitter operating at very low power (limited by a government-granted scientific licence) providing LTE services around the room over 2.6GHz radio-frequency spectrum.
