Huawei Unveils End-to-End HSPA+ Mobile Solution
Huawei Supports the World’ s First Live Demonstration of Commercially ready HSPA+ Network and Device with Speeds towards 21Mbps
Shenzhen, China.- Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. (“Huawei”), a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced the successful completion of the world’ s first live demonstration of a commercially ready HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access) network and device.
Conducted in Hong Kong with leading telecoms operator PCCW, the live demonstration of Huawei’ s HSPA+ solution based on fourth generation BTS and mobile broadband terminal, the E182E, showed that data-intensive applications sharing can be transmitted with HSPA+ data speeds. PCCW also showcased its network capability and readiness for supporting HSPA+ mobile broadband services achieving maximum speeds over fiber backhaul. Huawei’ s HSPA+ solution and HSPA+ mobile broadband terminal E182E will be ready for full commercial use in the early part of 2009.
“It is clear from today’ s live demonstration that Huawei’ s HSPA+ solution, coupled with PCCW’ s sophisticated digital network, will enable PCCW to deliver a world-class mobile broadband experience to our customers through increased network capacity and the highest data speeds,” said PCCW Wireless Business Managing Director Richard Midgett.
“The successful testing of our HSPA+ technology is another milestone in making this important end-to-end solution available to mobile network operators across the globe, providing them with unrivalled universal mobile broadband connectivity,” said Mr. Charles Huang, President of Global Marketing, Strategy & Marketing Division, Huawei Technologies. “Huawei’ s HSPA+ solution carries an unparalleled speed of up to 21Mbps which is the fastest in the world to date.”
“Our capability to support PCCW with true end-to-end solutions – from network to terminal and technical expertise – is a sign of Huawei’ s commitment to innovation and leadership in the global mobile broadband market. We are on track to have our HSPA+ service ready for commercial use in the early part of 2009,” Mr. Huang said.
Huawei’ s HSPA+ service is expected to be adopted by several key operators because it is a cost-effective migration path from HSDPA/HSUPA, allowing end users to enjoy the higher speeds and reliability that HSPA+ delivers. The technology is backward compatible with all prior generations of WCDMA and evolves existing networks without the need for new spectrum.
Today is the first time HSPA+ has been tested with Huawei’ s own HSPA+ mobile broadband terminal. The E182E enables consumers to enjoy blistering Internet speeds while network operators will be able to provide improved service offerings more efficiently.
