Rogers, Ericsson launch UMTS-HSPDA trials

Rogers Communications and Ericsson are launching UMTS-HSPDA trials in Toronto. The companies also plan to assess Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) technology during the trial. The companies expect the IMS technology to enable a triple play of voice, data and video on demand through their subscribers mobile phones. The companies did not specify how long the trials would last but did estimate a Canadian commercial deployment of 3G services by the end of next year.
