Motorola is demonstrating live LTE while moving through the street of Barcewlona for the duration of Mobile World Congress 2009. During the Motorola LTE drive tour, visitors will be driven around the streets of Barcelona to experience the performance of LTE in a real-life metropolitan RF environment, including site to site hand-over. Visitors will also be able to experience a number of demanding applications running over LTE, including High Definition (HD) streaming video and a collection of high bandwidth and low latency Internet-based applications. The drive tour showcases Motorola's latest OFDM-based wireless network infrastructure operating at 2.6GHz, utilizing the Aeroflex TM500 LTE test mobile which provides a platform for replicating LTE handsets prior to the availability of commercial devices. In addition, the LTE tour will connect live with Motorola's booth (A159, Hall 8) to demonstrate HD video blogging between the two locations. Visitors to Motorola's booth can also see live demonstrations of Motorola's new LTE terminal development platform illustrating Motorola's commitment to accelerate the arrival of LTE.
Visitors to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain will be able to see, talk to and play games with LTE users in Bonn, Germany over the world's first international end-to-end LTE connection.

LTE is a next generation wireless technology that delivers seamless mobile broadband connectivity making applications like streaming HD Video, interactive gaming, and video conferencing as accessible on mobile devices as they are at home or the office. Using technology from Nortel and LG Electronics, T-Mobile has set up an LTE trial network (video, whitepaper) in Bonn that tests the potential ability of LTE to deliver this mobile broadband lifestyle under real world conditions. Visitors to T-Mobile's booth at Mobile World Congress will be able to view live streaming video originating from a vehicle as it travels around Bonn carrying an LTE mobile device.
For the past three months visitors to T-Mobile's headquarters in Bonn have been able to look beyond the data speeds and capacity to experience what the technology could bring to real life communications T-Mobile is now bringing this experience to Barcelona allowing visitors to their booth to interact with users in Bonn over a mobile video connection and through popular applications like multi-player gaming and social networking.
