Clearwire has long said that they have the technology, spectrum, and expertise to move from WiMax to LTE if necessary, and a press released today seems to reiterate that. Clearwire announced that it would: “conduct 4G LTE technology trials [...] in the U.S., and [...] test multiple coexistence scenarios between LTE and WiMAX radio technologies.” The release goes on to state that Clearwire, “expects the technical trials to demonstrate that Clearwire’s 4G network can deliver significantly higher performance using LTE technologies than any other operator,” and that they plan to “conduct the tests in collaboration with Huawei Technologies.” Huawei is the company that provided the infrastructure to the world’s first commercial LTE network in Europe.
