Qualcomm demos HSPA+ transfer rate at 20 Mbps

Qualcomm said it has placed an HSPA+ Release 7 data call at a transfer rate of more than 20 Mbps in a 5-megahertz channel. Such a capability would allow HSPA operators to double the data and triple the voice capacity of their networks compared with current iterations of HSPA, Qualcomm noted.

The transfer rate was achieved using Qualcomm's MDM8200 chipset product. "This is a stepping stone towards commercial deployment of HSPA+, expected early next year," said Alex Katouzian, vice president of product management, Qualcomm CDMA Technologies.
