Huawei to Showcase Unparalleled HSPA+ Uplink and Downlink Capabilities at 2010 Mobile World Congress
84Mb/s download peak speeds and 11Mb/s uplink peak speeds will be achieved

Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, will showcase its latest HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) technologies at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona. Visitors to Huawei’s booth (8A159, Hall 8) will experience the world’s fastest HSPA+ download peak speeds of 84Mb/s and uplink peak speeds of 11Mb/s.

Huawei forecasts that there will be a 1,000-fold increase in mobile broadband network traffic in the next decade, posing both a challenge, and an opportunity, for operators around the world. Driven by this rapid growth of mobile broadband, higher speed, lower latency, and better service experience has become the priority for end-users. Huawei’s HSPA+ solution greatly improves the end user’s mobile broadband experience when uploading materials, such as video conferencing, file sharing, and email.

In order to provide downlink data rates of up to 84Mb/s, Huawei’s HSPA+ solution is based on 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) Release 9 standards and combines higher order modulation (HOM) schemes (64QAM), multi-input multi-output (MIMO), and dual cell transmission. To realize the peak uplink data rates of up to 11Mb/s, Huawei adopts an Interference Cancellation solution, which doubles the speed on 3GPP Release 6 and minimizes intra-cell interference issues.

Wan Biao, President of Wireless, Huawei, said, “Our record-breaking data speeds showcase the potential of HSPA+ and demonstrate how Huawei’s solution can enable operators to provide consumers with an ever more attractive mobile broadband experience.”

Huawei plays an active role in HSPA+ development. In March 2009, Huawei deployed Asia Pacific’ s first 21Mb/s HSPA+ commercial network. In October 2009, Huawei announced plans to provide 28Mb/s HSPA+ commercial service in Singapore, and Huawei successfully demonstrated a 56Mb/s HSPA+ commercial solution in Beijing. As of 2009, Huawei helped 36 operators with HSPA+ network deployment, among which 20 were HSPA+ commercial networks and 16 were HSPA+ networks in deployment or in trial.
