Ericsson pushes data limits on HSPA

Ericsson is pushing the limits on 3G High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA). During CTIA Wireless 2008 this week, the vendor plans to demonstrate downlink speeds of 42 Mb/s over a 5-megahertz channel using HSPA evolved equipment with the addition of MIMO technology. The new architecture is expected to become commercially available this year and can be added to Ericsson's later-generation WCDMA base stations with a software upgrade. Ericsson is targeting those operators that don't have enough spectrum for LTE.
