NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel said that it has deployed LTE-Advanced using carrier aggregation across TD-LTE and FDD-LTE bands in Mumbai, to virtually create larger airwave blocks, thereby offering faster and more stable 4G services for users. The telco now plans to extend the deployment of 4G Advanced in other geographies in the coming months.

The telco had earlier rolled out LTE-Advanced across TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE bands in Kerala using Nokia telecom gear.

"With today's rollout, Mumbai is among the few cities globally to have high speed data services over 4G Advanced," the company said.

Airtel launched its 4G services in Mumbai in May 2015 on the 2300 Mhz band using the TD LTE standard and recently added capacity on the 1800 Mhz band using FD LTE.

Customers with mobile devices that support 4G Advanced or LTE-A will be able to enjoy 4G data speeds of up to 135 Mbps, the telco said, adding that the deployment will offer superior indoors and outdoors coverage.

Under the carrier aggregation deployment, the capacities of TD LTE (2300 MHz spectrum band) and FD LTE (1800 MHz spectrum band) have been combined to enable better spectrum utilisation and efficiency.

LTE-A promises to deliver two to three times faster speeds than today's 4G LTE, using a process that allows operators to pool spectrum across inter and intra bands, thus providing better consumer experience to the users whose device possess those capabilities.

"Airtel has consistently been ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation and technology deployment, in order to deliver a superior mobile experience to its customers. Airtel has led the rollout of 4G services in India and with the deployment of 4G Advanced, we are taking a quantum leap in delivering a superior mobile broadband experience to our customers," According to Ajai Puri, Director - Operations (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel, said in a statement.

The deployment is a part of Airtel's ongoing network transformation program - Project Leap, under which Airtel plans to invest Rs 60,000 crores over the next three years.

Mukesh Ambani- led Reliance Jio also started carrier aggregation trials across all bands. "Trials started for Carrier Aggregation in all RJIL frequency bands," Reliance Industries Limited had earlier said.
