Telstra to Have 3G/WCDMA with HSDPA by Ericsson
Posted on 15-Nov-2005 22:36. | Tags Filed under: News.

Autralian operator Telstra has chosen Ericsson to provide a national 3G/WCDMA network, based on WCDMA 850 MHz. The network will connect all of Telstra's mobile customers to one national network, increasing coverage and the selection of services. The network will be HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) capable.

Under a memorandum of understanding Ericsson has been appointed to deliver and deploy radio access equipment, core
infrastructure and services in support of Telstra including design, installation, integration and project management. The parties will finalise their commercial arrangements as soon as possible.

Håkan Eriksson, Chief Technology Officer for Ericsson, said at a media and analyst briefing, that the migration to one national network would help deliver the best possible services and performance to Telstra customers across the country.

"With one national network in Australia there is greater freedom for local and international roaming, stronger community value and greater choice of handsets and services," said Mr. Eriksson.

HSDPA can provide peak data rates of up to 14 Mbit/s and is considered to be the enabler for Mobile Broadband and Mobile TV services to become mass-market.

The new national network builds on the existing agreement where Ericsson is upgrading Telstra's GSM network to 3G/WCDMA, supplying softswitch core and radio access network equipment, including HSDPA and network rollout services.
