Nokia unveils RD-3, its first LTE internet modem

After announcing its commitment to LTE several times, Nokia has now finally unveiled its first LTE (4G) modem.

Called Nokia Internet Modem RD-3, the device supports multiple LTE frequency bands, as well as interoperability with GSM/EDGE and WCDMA/HSPA networks.

Reportedly, the Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 is ready to be used in LTE trials by operators around the world (Verizon might be interested in this, since it has already completed LTE data calls).

“Nokia is committed to supporting industry activities aimed at maturing LTE technology to enable the first commercial networks to launch in 2010. Nokia is a founding member in the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI) and carries out interoperability testing with a number of network vendors, collaborates with measurement equipment manufacturers and is ready to support operators with their LTE deployment activities. The Nokia Internet Modem RD-3 is used in all these activities,” declared Jani Mäenpää, Project Manager, LTE/SAE Interoperability and Trials, Nokia.

Unlike LG, which presented the world’s first LTE modem back in June, Nokia didn’t show a photo of its LTE modem.
