Telecoms services enabler Nokia Siemens Networks announced on Monday that it will be demonstrating an HSPA+ data call with peak throughput of 336Mb/s at PT Expo Comm in Beijing, China.
The company said that the industry's first Long Term HSPA Evolution showcase demonstrates the feasibility of improving HSPA+ speed and capacity by using multi-carrier and multiband technology.
The demonstration will be conducted using Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi Multiradio Base Station and Multicontroller platform alongside MDM8220 test terminals from Qualcomm Incorporated. The showcase combines eight HSPA carriers (multi-carrier), each carrying 42Mb/s with MIMO and 64 QAM modulation. The configuration can be allocated from one or multiple frequency bands (multiband), simultaneously for one data connection of over 300Mb/s.
Multi-carrier and multiband HSPA is standardised in 3GPP Release 8 through 11 and the standardisation for eight carriers is expected to be completed by 2012.
The eight-carrier product will be available from Nokia Siemens Networks by the end of 2012. No pricing details were disclosed.
