Huawei Achieved 63Mbps using 3-Carrier HSDPA Technology

Huawei today announced that it has successfully completed tests of 3-Carrier-High Speed Downlink Packet Access (3C-HSDPA) using its RAN and Qualcomm's Snapdragon™ 801 processor, showcasing higher download speed.

The 3C-HSDPA technology that has higher efficiency of wireless spectrum usage was introduced in the 3GPP Release 10 standards which can effectively aggregate three carriers for a single downlink subscriber over one or two mainstream UMTS bands at 850-900MHz and 2100MHz.

According to Huawei, the trial achieved peak download rates of 63Mb/s, a 50% increase in downlink user speeds compared with Dual Carrier-High Speed Downlink Packet Access (DC-HSDPA). 

"This is a timely and important milestone in a fast expanding world of smart phones, growing mobile video demand and real-time large file download expectations. The relevance of higher speed downlink is also of significance for a growing number of multi-carrier networks, especially 3G 900 MHz and 2100 MHz band network deployments where improving download speeds through multi-carrier aggregation technology is critical for maintaining user experience and retention."
