Mobilkom austria demos 10.1 Mpbs I-HSPA

Mobilkom austria has demonstrated what it claimed is the world's fastest data call with a mobile device using the internet High Speed Packet Access (I-HSPA) solution from Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN).


During the trial, the data transmission downlink speed reached up to 10.1 Mbps, according to NSN. 


The I-HSPA, which is also known as Evolved HSPA - a 3G mobile data protocol defined in 3GPP Release 7, introduces a flat network architecture to the 3G networks based on W-CDMA technology by connecting the base station directly to the internet and enables cost-efficient scaling of the network.


It works with all HSPA devices and improves end user experience by reducing latency. I-HSPA flat network architecture also enables smooth migration to LTE, supporting data rates of up to 173 Mbps.
