[ News, Science / Tech, October 11 2007] Korea develops faster data transmission technology

Korea has developed and successfully demonstrated a mobile communications technology designed to allow users to download data at much faster rates, helping the country stay ahead in the global race to preempt next-generation mobile communications markets, a state-run institute said Thursday (Oct. 11).

The technology named "New Nomadic Local Area Wireless Access (NoLA)" enables users to download data at 3.6 gigabits per second (gbps), higher than 1 gbps, an international benchmark for fourth-generation (4G) mobile communications, the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) said in a statement.
