Ericsson claims HSPA leadership

Ericsson is claiming three world firsts in HSPA development, after a series of demonstrations at its headquarters in Sweden yesterday.
 
The vendor demonstrated connection speeds of 168Mbps in the downlink and 24Mbps up using a prototype consumer device and commercial network equipment, claiming the speeds are a world record for the technology.
 
It also achieved speeds of 84Mbps in trial of dual-carrier HSPA that combined two 5MHz carriers to connect a single customer to double the maximum speeds offered by current commercial networks.
 
The firm rounded out its demonstrations, which were attended by SingTel executives, with a showcase of single-carrier HSPA on a commercial handset that offered speeds of 42Mbps. Ericsson claims this test shows how operators can use their radio spectrum more efficiently.
