Telefónica gives world’s first real LTE demonstration

image In Madrid yesterday, Telefónica gave a demonstration of how real services work on a 4th generation mobile network using LTE (long term evolution) technology. This is the first time that an LTE prototype network has been connected to the real network (3G & 2G), an indication that applications could be just around the corner.

This first demo included a VOIP call and a video call using the LTE mini-network installed at the HQ for this purpose by Ericsson, a video conference and data & image download with speeds well over 140Mbps: ten times faster than the current speed offered by the 3G network over HSPA technology.

Commitment to technological leadership and innovation is one of Telefónica’s key objectives.

iPhone Streaming Bluetooth Audio to a car audio system

image One of the biggest features at the iPhone 3.0 software announcement was Bluetooth Audio (A2DP). Now let me put on record now that if you like music and listen to it through a pair of high quality headphones then Bluetooth Audio may leave you feeling a little underwhelmed when it comes to quality. One area that it will come in handy though is in the car. The guys at Kicking Tires have the latest beta firmware and paired an iPhone up with a stereo system in a Toyota Venza and provided a quick video demonstration of how easy it was to set up. Take a look after the beak.
