AT&T, Ericsson, Orange and Qualcomm have teamed up for the first live demonstration of gigabit LTE using License Assisted Access (LAA) technology, where licensed and unlicensed spectrum is combined to maximise LTE speeds and capacity.

An agreement signed by the GSMA and the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) will see the two organisations collaborating to help manage the allocation and market availability of 5G spectrum bands.
