Tokyo, April 27, 2010 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today that it has successfully carried out LTE laboratory trials with Telefonica S.A. (Headquarters: Madrid, Spain; Chairman and CEO: Cesar Alierta; Telefonica), one of Europe's largest telecom carriers with operations in more than 20 countries worldwide.

This trial took place between February and March 2010, at Telefonica de Argentina, member of the Telefonica group. NEC provided Telefonica de Argentina labs with a total LTE network system that consisted of core network systems and wireless base stations. Approximately 100 test items requested by Telefonica were achieved while under a 20MHz bandwidth, including a maximum throughput of 145Mbps while connecting with a simulator device. Furthermore, these trials also achieved a maximum throughput of 95Mbps using an actual LTE terminal.
