Motorola tested the network provider the fourth generation.

Company Motorola at the CTIA Wireless 2009 to demonstrate the network provider fourth generation technology based on LTE, reports Computerworld. In this network was transferred to video monitors located in a moving van.
The speed of data transmission in the test network in excess of ten megabits per second. The only setback during the ten-test occurred when the equipment in a moving van to switch between base stations. At this moment the broadcasting was interrupted for about three seconds.
Representatives of Motorola emphasize that the current engineers are working to address this shortcoming. Then, Motorola will begin serial production of equipment for the LTE-networks. This happens at the end of 2009.
The speed of data transmission in the current 3G networks is typically three to five megabits per second. During testing LTE technology data transfer speed is equivalent to 10-15 megabitam per second. Close to the base station, it exceeded 25 megabits per second.
At present, the main competitor to cellular communication networks fourth generation technology based on LTE, a wireless WiMax. The speed of data transmission in the WiMax network to 75 megabits per second. The main proponent of WiMax - the company Intel.
Recently, head of sales and production company Nokia Anssi Vanoki (Anssi Vanjoki) standard called WiMax dead. He was confident that by 2015, will receive wide distribution network of LTE, but WiMax will share the fate of videostandarta Betamax, which at that time was replaced cassettes VHS.
The first mobile phone Nokia, support networks LTE, to appear in 2010. Last autumn, the company Nokia Siemens Networks launched the equipment for networking standard 4G LTE. It was expected that the first such network in early 2010 will launch the U.S. operator Verizon.
