Verizon Demos LTE Carrier Aggregation on CBRS Spectrum

Verizon might be one of many pushing for rule changes in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band, but the carrier isn’t stalling its work with those airwaves while that debate plays out.

"The carrier on Monday said it achieved the first ever use of CBRS band 48 spectrum in an LTE-Advanced demonstration of carrier aggregation working alongside partners Federated Wireless, Ericsson, and Qualcomm.

The test reportedly took place in Ericsson’s Plano, Texas, lab, and utilized 256-QAM technology on two 20 MHz channels in the 3.5 GHz band.

Qualcomm provided a test device running on a Snapdragon LTE modem," Diana Goovaerts continues to report.
