Next month, the top two football teams in the United States will be competing against each other at the NRG Stadium in the city of Houston in Texas for this year’s Super Bowl. Such a massive sports event will be expected to draw crowds from across the country, with every fan sure to be talking about it through voice calls, text messaging, and data (via social media). Major US wireless carrier Sprint is ready to take on that amount of data, and has gamely made an effort to set up new network infrastructure as well as continuing to improve its network capacity.
Sprint apparently has plans to unlock a certain functionality hidden in a number of its marquee handsets (including flagship devices from Samsung and Apple) that will essentially allow these devices to take full advantage of a piece of wireless tech that will deliver faster connection speeds. This was revealed much by Gunther Ottendorfer, the chief operating officer of the major US wireless carrier, just this week.
Not to be outdone with Verizon Wireless’ announcement of its LTE Advanced deployment a week ago, T-Mobile has revealed that it has successfully doubled the connection speed of its data network by way of 4x4 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output). According to the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States, 4x4 MIMO allows for significantly faster transmissions of data by increasing the number of data paths two fold between a mobile user’s handset and a cellular site.
Together with Nokia, Sprint has conducted a live demonstration of its new three channel carrier aggregation at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, right before the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) match between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Yankees.
