300 HSPA Networks Worldwide

3G Americas, a market representation partner (MRP) in 3GPP, has highlighted the latest industry forecasts that there will be 458 Million UMTS-HSPA Mobile Broadband Connections Worldwide by the end of 2009.

GSA confirms 7.2 Mbps as new baseline for HSPA

July 27, 2009: Half of the HSPA networks in commercial service globally are capable of peak downlink data speeds of 7.2 Mbps or higher, according to research just published by the Global mobile Suppliers Association – GSA.

GSA’s newly released HSPA Operator Commitments Survey confirms 316 HSPA network commitments in 129 countries. A total of 274 operators have commercially launched HSPA mobile broadband services in 115 countries, with around half of them supporting a peak downlink data speed of 7.2 Mbps or higher.

New Report on Smart Antennas

Source 3G Americas PR, June 30 2009

3G Americas has published an educational report: MIMO Transmission Schemes for LTE and HSPA Networks.

The report is intended as a tool to increase awareness of smart antenna systems – also known as multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology – and help guide their deployments.

Smart antenna, or MIMO, technology is commonly defined as, the use of two or more unique radio signals, in the same radio channel, where each signal carries different digital information, or two or more radio signals that use beam forming, receive combining and spatial multiplexing (SM). Relative to a traditional 1x1 antenna system, a 2x2 MIMO system is expected to deliver significant cell throughput gain.
