Bharti Airtel, the country's largest telecom operator, said that it has become the first mobile operator in India to commercially deploy LTE-Advanced or 4G+ using Nokia's carrier aggregation technology across TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE on a LIVE 4G network in Kerala using Nokia telecom gear.

Airtel said that it has joined a select group of global mobile operators to commercially deploy the technology that delivers ultra-fast mobile data speeds and enables better spectrum utilisation and efficiency.

ET had earlier reported that Airtel was piloting the technology in select circles, while Reliance Jio, the country's only pan-India BWA license holder, was mulling over deploying LTE-U technology in the country.

Using the carrier aggregation technology and combining the capacities of TD LTE (2300 MHz spectrum band) and FD LTE (1800 MHz spectrum band), data speeds of up to 135 Mbps have been delivered on commercially available mobile devices on Airtel's 4G network in Kerala.

"This is a game changer for mobile broadband in India. Airtel has pioneered 4G deployment in India and we are delighted to raise the innovation benchmark to deliver a world-class experience to our customers. Our strong 4G footprint and a rapidly maturing device ecosystem, will now allow us to deliver the next level of high speed mobile data services on our network," Gopal Vittal, MD & CEO (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel, said in a statement
