Intel wireless lab validation board for XMM 7260 LTE
Among the demos was a validation board carrying the recently announced XMM 7260 LTE platform connected to a laptop. Note the two bars on the laptop screen: the tall red bar is showing the modem receiving data at a consistent 300 Mbps. It's using carrier aggregation -- basically combining two frequency channels into one big pipe -- to reach that speed. The yellow bar at the bottom of the screen indicates that the modem is simultaneously transmitting 50 Mbps.
