Huawei, a provider of next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, has announced its plans to launch a 56Mbps high speed packet access plus (HSPA+) commercial solution in 2010.
Huawei’s latest solution will enable operators to offer download speeds that are double what is available today.
The 56Mbps HSPA+ solution, featuring multi-carrier and multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technologies, was successfully demonstrated in Beijing recently.
“Advances in mobile broadband, particularly record breaking data speeds and capacity of HSPA networks, have had a profound impact on the telecom industry and demonstrate the enormous potential of UMTS and HSPA,” said Wan Biao, president of wireless, Huawei. “This 56Mbps HSPA+ solution will enable operators to maintain their industry leading positions and provide consumers with an evermore attractive mobile broadband experience.”
The solution allows operators currently using Huawei’s fourth generation and 38xx series base stations to smoothly evolve their legacy networks to 56Mbps HSPA+ networks via software upgrades alone, and deploy leading edge networks at significant cost savings that ultimately protect their long term investment.
As a leading provider of end to end mobile broadband solutions, Huawei has deployed over 10 commercial HSPA+ network contracts, as of August 2009. In Asia Pacific, Huawei has deployed a commercial 28Mbps HSPA+ network, and, along with leading operators including Japan EMOBILE, Singapore StarHub, Vodafone Turkey and Hong Kong PCCW, Huawei has launched five commercial HSPA+ networks which support downlink speeds of up to 21Mbps.
