GSA HSPA Slide Deck April 2010

  1. 1. Global HSPA Update April 2010 www.gsacom.com info@gsacom.com GSA LinkedIN Group www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2313721 www.gsacom.com/rss/gsanews.php4 www.twitter.com/gsacom www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 1/15
  2. 2. High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) First evolution of WCDMA evolution The path to mobile broadband began with WCDMA and its first evolution - High Speed Packet Access (HSPA), a 3GPP global standard, boosting capacity, system performance and user data speeds HSPA is the leading mobile broadband technology globally Over 98% of commercial WCDMA operators have launched HSPA 388 HSPA Operator Commitments in 151 countries/territories 341 commercial operators launched in 143 countries Including 52 commercial HSPA+ networks www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 2/15
  3. 3. 388 HSPA network commitments in 151 countries www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 3/15
  4. 4. 341 commercial HSPA operators in 143 countries/territories For the full list of HSPA operator networks see “HSPA Operator Commitments survey – April 16, 2010” www.gsacom.com www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 4/15
  5. 5. High Speed Packet Access  186, i.e. the majority (54.5%) of commercial HSPA networks support a peak downlink data speed of 7.2 Mbps or higher. Typical user download data throughputs can approach 5.0 Mbps or higher, according to network and user device capabilities.  Many operators successfully position HSPA as an alternative to fixed broadband, with the added value of mobility, and consistently report traffic and revenue growth for mobile broadband services enabled by HSPA.  A total of 100 HSPA networks (almost 30% of commercial HSPA networks) have launched HSUPA in 53 countries, including 36 networks supporting up to 5.8 Mbps using 2 ms TTI.  Capacity and performance increase with HSPA+ (HSPA Evolution) deployments. www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 5/15
  6. 6. HSPA commercial systems worldwide www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 6/15
  7. 7. 341 commercial HSPA operators in 143 countries/territories  274 commercial HSPA networks (over 80%) support 3.6 Mbps or higher downlink speed  186 commercial HSPA networks (54.5%) support 7.2 Mbps peak or higher downlink speed  112 operators have committed to HSUPA (57 countries); 100 HSUPA operators launched (53 countries) i.e. almost 30% of commercial HSPA networks have launched HSUPA  103 HSPA+ network commitments in 51 countries; 52 HSPA+ networks launched in 32 countries  272 out of 388 HSPA network operator commitments (over 70%) have also committed to EDGE www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 7/15
  8. 8. 341 commercial HSPA networks launched www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 8/15
  9. 9. HSPA+ evolution path HSPA+ has a strong evolution path. A number of networks are being prepared to support 42 Mbps peak downlink capabilities this year. This performance is achieved by combining 64QAM modulation and doubling the bandwidth i.e. using dual carriers (2 x 5 MHz = 10 MHz) and is known as DC-HSPA (Dual Cell HSPA). This capability was introduced in 3GPP Release 8, which also enables 42 Mbps to be achieved by combining 2 x 2 MHz MIMO and 64QAM in a single (i.e. 5 MHz) carrier. For the uplink, using 16 QAM instead of QPSK modulation means doubling the peak rate to 11.5 Mbps. Release 9 combines multicarrier and MIMO technologies in 10 MHz bandwidth to reach 84 Mbps peak downlink. Using multicarrier on the uplink doubles the uplink peak data rate to 23 Mbps. Standardization beyond Release 9 may lead to downlink data speeds exceeding 100 Mbps. www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 9/15
  10. 10. HSPA+ network commitments and deployments 103 operators have committed to HSPA+ deployment, including 52 HSPA+ networks in commercial service in 32 countries 46 HSPA+ commercial networks support up to 21 Mbps peak downlink 6 HSPA+ networks support 28 Mbps or higher By end 2010, GSA expects c. 90 HSPA+ systems will be in commercial service www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 10/15
  11. 11. 2,349 HSPA devices have been launched including HSPA+ devices For segments, trends, and analysis read “HSPA Devices survey – Key Findings” – www.gsacom.com More analysis ! Comprehensive analysis of HSPA devices identified in the latest GSA survey is possible using GSA’s GAMBOD (GSA Analyzer for Mobile Broadband Devices). GAMBOD is for use only by GSA website registered users that we have categorized as being from GSA member organizations or from network operators. www.gsacom.com/gambod www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 11/15
  12. 12. HSPA in lower frequency bands: 900, 850 MHz While the majority of today’s 3G/HSPA networks operate in the 2100 MHz band, the use of lower frequencies, such as 900 MHz, provides a much larger geographical coverage area compared to what is possible when deploying at 2100 MHz. HSPA deployments in the 900 MHz band significantly reduce the number of cell sites needed to cover rural and suburban areas, securing major CAPEX and OPEX savings for 3G deployments. These cost and coverage benefits similarly also apply to HSPA deployments at 850 MHz. GSA has published a UMTS900 operator case study on Optus in Australia, which shows significant cost and coverage benefits of deploying 3G mobile broadband services with UMTS900. The case study examines the business drivers and practical experiences of Optus, who launched UMTS900 in May 2008. It confirms the findings from GSA’s earlier UMTS900 case study on Elisa Corporation in Finland, and provides additional insights. www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA Update April 2010 Slide no. 12/15
  13. 13. HSPA in lower frequency bands: 900, 850 MHz The Optus network is the largest UMTS900 network in the world. In addition to cost savings, the ability to use existing infrastructure dramatically reduced the time needed for deployment. Optus saw the rollout of UMTS900 in suburban and rural areas as a natural extension of its initial 3G deployment in the more heavily populated areas where 2100 MHz is used. UMTS900 has brought 3G and mobile broadband services more cost-effectively to outside the cities. More than just the need for fewer installations, UMTS900 facilitates the addition of a much larger data market because it provides better indoor coverage than 2100 MHz.
