Cingular Wireless and Lucent Technologies trial HSDPA on 3G network in Atlanta
Posted on 5-Jan-2005 08:00 | Tags Filed under: News



Cingular Wireless and Lucent Technologies have completed the first HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) data calls on the third-generation (3G) UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) trial network deployed by the two companies in the Atlanta market.

In recent tests the HSDPA-enhanced network delivered sustained over-the-air data rates of more than 3 second (Mbps), and supported a wide variety of high-bandwidth multimedia services including high-quality streaming video, as well as fast downloads of high-resolution images and other large files.

These tests follow Cingular's recent announcement of plans to roll out a nationwide 3G UMTS/HSDPA network. HSDPA is an enhanced version of UMTS technology that will ultimately support theoretical maximum peak data speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. Lucent was selected as one of Cingular's strategic suppliers, providing network equipment, software and services to support the deployment.

Cingular's UMTS/HSDPA network will initially support data speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps, which is the top speeds of the first generation of HSDPA-capable devices expected to become available next year. As more advanced end-user devices become available, Cingular's HSDPA system will ultimately deliver theoretical maximum peak data speeds of up to 14.4 Megabits per second (Mbps).
