O2's parent company is set to showcase the benefits of long term evolution (LTE) mobile broadband technology at Mobile World Congress 2010.

Telefonica is collaborating with Nokia Siemens Networks to present a live demonstration of the super-fast technology at the industry event in Barcelona, which begins on February 15th.

According to the firms, the demo will see LTE equipment combined with terminals to highlight the mobile broadband applications available through such services.

Vicente San Miguel, Chief Technology Officer at Telefonica, said the company wants to underline its leadership "in the future of mobile broadband".

He added: "As the needs of our customers grow and mature, LTE is the way to go, and we are proud to say that we are among the first in the world to demonstrate LTE services using commercial hardware."

O2 has previous worked with technology solutions provider Huawei on a trial of LTE technology held in Slough.
