Consumers in India are set to experience high speed data downloads and mobile broadband. Reliance Industries and Ericsson India on Tuesday showcased the results from their first field trial of LTE-TDD (long term evolution) mobile system technology.
The trial demonstrated the performance of LTE technology and the complete eco-system available today to support the technology. The trial was conducted at the Reliance Corporate Park, Navi Mumbai, the group's iconic campus, which is the nerve centre for RIL's ambitious plans for launching next generation mobile broadband services on a pan-India basis.

The eco system capabilities were also showcased using ST Ericsson dongles connected over the air to the base station. Full mobility with flawless delivery of applications such as HD Multimedia Streaming, LIVE TV was demonstrated with on-the-move speeds of 50 and 70 km per hour as well as a seamless handover among the number of LTE Base Station Sectors.
