MediaTek & Nokia achieve 5G 3CC Carrier Aggregation First

Following MediaTek and Keysight's 5G 3CC-CA successful test in September using an emulated 5G Standalone network environment, MediaTek and Nokia have just announced another successful 3CC-CA test, performed in a test environment using Nokia's latest AirScale equipment and a device featuring MediaTek M80 modem.

This world's first test achievement reached a peak 3.2Gbps downlink throughput by combining 210MHz spectrum using 20MHz n71 (600MHz FDD) + 190MHz n41 (2.6GHz TDD).

This test showcases that 5G service providers will be able to deliver higher throughputs and capacity to their customers in typical use-cases that mix FDD and TDD spectrum, further enhancing the value of sub-6GHz (FR1) global deployments, especially in regions with disaggregated spectrum.

“This test demonstrates the importance of carrier aggregation in enabling mobile operators around the world to deliver best-in-class speed and capacity to their subscribers. The combination of Nokia’s AirScale portfolio and our technology boosts the possibilities of spectrum assets and 5G networks. We look forward to continuing to partner with Nokia to advance the 5G ecosystem,” said JS Pan, General Manager, Wireless Communication System, and Partnerships at MediaTek.
