David Everingham

Australian carrier Telstra and Swedish infrastructure firm Ericsson picked up the award for Pushing the Limits in mobile technology at the inaugural Telecoms.com Industry Awards on Monday night in Barcelona.

The Pushing the Limits category was the most hotly contested field in the competition, resulting in a tie for first place. Ericsson and Telstra picked up the award for their work on LTE broadcast technology.

The 9th annual LTE Asia conference is taking place on the 15th-17th September 2014 at the Suntec, Singapore. Click here to download a brochure for the event.

In 2013, Ericsson and Telstra conducted the world’s first LTE Broadcast session on a commercial LTE network, allowing the operator to send the same content simultaneously to a very large number of devices in a target area, achieving efficiencies not possible before.

David Everingham, CTO of the Telstra account at Ericsson, collected the award.

The other winners in this category were Radisys and Airspan for their LTE-A solution for small cells.

Ericsson also took home another award on the evening in the Connecting the Unconnected category, winning for its Millennium Villages Project.
