These demonstrations will utilize the world's first LTE handset (user equipment) modem chip. Developed by LG Electronics, this chip is integrated into a small data card that attaches to any USB port.
Dr. Jinsung Choi, vice president and head of LG Electronics' Mobile Communication Technology Research Lab, explained that more number of consumers like to use their mobile phones to create, send and watch video, download music, and browse the Internet.
He noted that LG Electronics' LTE handset modem chip is a key component for creating LTE devices like the USB dongles being demonstrated at Mobile World Congress.
“Such devices will allow people to take advantage of the network speeds offered by LTE to do these things anytime, anywhere,” explained Dr. Choi.
