Trend-setting Korea has another TD-LTE first to share. Gone are the days of requiring new base station sites in order to increase capacity and improve the subscriber experience. And no more border management drama with interference and low throughput at cell edges to contend with either. Picture instead a seamless, or rather an advanced and borderless 4G “Super cell” site, which provides virtually double the traditional throughput even at the edge. Trust NSN and Korea Telecom to go beyond borders, Gangnam style!
Korea Telecom (KT) and NSN debuted exactly this – the SuperTM9 cell – at Mobile World Congress 2014, using NSN’s commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station over TD-LTE. A SuperTM9 cell site is created out of a cluster of normal cell sites, but without the typical border of interference – making it virtually borderless. These sites are built using advanced antenna techniques like TM9 (Transmit Mode 9) beamforming and MU-MIMO (Multi User – Multiple Input Multiple Output), which provide very high user throughput everywhere compared with traditional techniques.
Check out this video to learn more about how to increase the capacity of your sites without cell-id re-planning, how to increase user throughput, and how to ensure a great user experience anywhere in the cell.
