Huawei this week announced, along with partner Qualcomm, the successful completion of one of the industry's first interoperability tests on dual carrier HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) technology. The test, which reached a peak downlink data rate of 42 Mbps, the fastest downlink rate experienced by 3G end-users, demonstrates that dual-carrier HSPA+ technology is ready for commercial deployment. Huawei's latest HSPA+ solution and Qualcomm's Mobile Data Modem (MDM) MDM8220 chipsets were used in this interoperability test. Implemented with dual cell technology, Huawei's HSPA+ solution can transmit data via two or more carriers, resulting in the downlink data rate of 42 Mbps.
This improves an operator's spectrum resources, enhances spectral efficiency and provides capacity gains of up to 20 %!
Huawei plays an active role in cooperating with global telecom operators, providing their subscribers with a faster and high quality mobile broadband experience. In March 2009, Huawei deployed Asia Pacific's first 21 Mbps HSPA+ commercial network. In October 2009, Huawei announced plans to provide 28 Mbps HSPA+ commercial service in Singapore and successfully demonstrated a 56 Mbps HSPA+ commercial solution in Beijing.
