Alca-Lu's new antenna technology claims to increase LTE/3G data speeds

Alca-Lu claims to have done industry’s first live field tests of Coordinated Multipoint Transmission (CoMP) a new technology that will increase data transmission rates and help ensure consistent service quality and throughput on Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless broadband networks as well as on 3G networks. The underlying technology coordinates and combines signals from multiple antennas, CoMP, will make it possible for mobile users to enjoy consistent performance and quality when they access high-bandwidth services whether they are close to the center of an LTE cell or at its outer edges.

Alca-Lu didn't publish any performance numbers and didn't quantify the performance improvement. The press release states that the testing was done using the modem and controller elements of Alca-Lu's LTE base station (eNodeB).
