Ericsson triples HSPA uplink capacity
Ericsson has developed a unique solution that triples uplink capacity in HSPA networks. This allows operators with a large number of end users to offer high uplink data speeds.HSPA is a key means of delivering high-speed, high-capacity mobile broadband, allowing operators to cost-effectively meet user demand for advanced internet services - anywhere, anytime. However, as the number of smartphones connected to a network increases and usage of heavy data-generating applications surges, uplink capacity is becoming more and more important. On January 25, 2012, Ericsson demonstrated that over-the-air uplink throughput for simultaneously active devices in a cell was increased from around 4Mbps to more than 12Mbps.
