Ericsson's 56Mbps HSPA+ speed breaks world record

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Tue March 31, 2009

Ericsson shows 56Mbps HSPA

Ericsson announced on Tuesday that it will demonstrate HSPA data speeds as fast as 56Mbps at the CTIA Wireless convention, which kicks off on Wednesday. The speeds should double those of 28Mbps-capable networks launching in North America, Germany and Italy. At Mobile World Congress in February, Ericsson successfully demonstrated speeds in a similar network operating at a peak of 42Mbps. The next step in the evolution of the HSPA technology, dubbed HSPA+, involves the use of a combination of multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) and multi-carrier HSPA technology.

The demonstration will involve a concept version of an Ericsson HSPA-enabled mobile broadband router that will share the a connection between multiple users. The underlying technology is now being standardized, with a commercial deployment scheduled for 2010. Ericsson will support a release of the 42Mbps HSPA+ infrastructure before the end of 2009.

Ericsson's current wireless data network is capable of download speeds up to 21Mbps.
