LG will be showcasing the capabilities of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology in the LG stand (booth #8205) at this year?s Consumer Electronics Show.
The company will demonstrate one of the world?s first LTE download speed of 100Mbps. LTE is dubbed as the next generation mobile communication service technology.
By connecting to the LG?s LTE USB Modem, LG presented the real-time demonstrations of full HD video files, video conferences and web-surfing at speeds up to 100Mbps for downloads and 50Mbps for uploads. To put this technology in perspective, imagine being able to download an entire movie to your mobile phone in only one minute.
LG will also be unveiling to the public the "handover" technology which enables seamless network conversion between LTE and CDMA networks. Using the even slimmer version of the previous 4G LTE device, an LG proprietary device designed for the Handover last August, LG demonstrated seamless and endless data transmissions between LTE and CDMA antennas which allows for video file downloads, web surfing and internet calling.
"We will continue to introduce more LTE devices in line with LTE commercialization efforts that will go into effect this year," said Dr. Skott Ahn, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Also LG and Verizon Wireless are collaborating to demonstrate the capabilities and applications made possible by LTE networks. During CES 2010, the Verizon Wireless Innovation Center which fosters an environment for companies to develop applications, products and services for 4G LTE technology, is demonstrating several applications and Innovation Center member LG Mobile Phones is a key participant.
LG provided the LTE connectivity modules and devices to support the advanced capabilities of the demonstration LTE network and collaborated with other companies for developing the following:
- Home monitoring solutions, including a home gateway provides home security monitoring with a security camera, as well as energy management and home appliance monitoring from a web portal and a smartphone.
- An indoor/outdoor IP security camera providing a home surveillance video stream that can be monitored via a web portal or a smartphone.
- A video conferencing product transmitting a camera-captured IP video through a 4G connection to other devices supporting a multi-user video conference
