NSN claims 60% data rate increase for HSPA+

Nokia Siemens claims to be the first to implement new standards on HSPA+ networks that boost the performance of smartphones and improves data speeds.
The infrastructure vendor claims to have delivered Continuous Packet Connectivity (CPC), a package of 3GPP-approved features designed to cut network interference caused by growing numbers of smartphone users accessing data services on HSPA+ networks. The firm states the techniques can boost uplink capacity by five times over standard networks, and boosts data rates 60%.
Additional benefits include a 15% improvement in smartphone battery life, and a reduction in downlink interference.
“We’ve established that Continuous Packet Connectivity serves as a powerful tool,” says Keith Sutton, head of NSN’s WCDMA business, adding. “High network interference levels pose a serious challenge to network capacity, considerably limiting the number of smartphone users that operators can add to their HSPA+ networks.”
