GSA HSPAevolution June 2010

  1. 1. Global HSPA+ Network Commitments and Deployments June 9, 2010 www.gsacom.com GSA LinkedIN Group www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2313721 Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) www.gsacom.com/rss/gsanews.php4 www.twitter.com/gsacom info@gsacom.com www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA+ network commitments and deployments – June 9, 2010 Slide no. 1/10
  2. 2. HSPA Evolution Global Status  Widespread market acceptance of dongles, HSPA-enabled netbooks/notebooks and the rapidly growing smartphone segment have pushed data consumption to unprecedented levels  In a survey organized in 2009 by GSA, most respondents believed that HSPA Evolution mobile broadband technology (also known as “Evolved HSPA“ or “HSPA+”) would enter the mainstream during 2010, enabling network operators to deliver higher capacities and performance at lowest cost per byte delivered. Most stated that they expected 21 Mbps peak downlink (64QAM HSPA) systems would be the most prominent.  GSA confirms this expectation is rapidly becoming reality – this report provides the evidence  114 operators in 54 countries have committed to HSPA+ network deployments, of which 61 HSPA+ systems have now entered commercial service in 34 countries.  The vast majority (52) support a peak downlink data speed of 21 Mbps, 5 commercial networks support 28 Mbps, and 4 networks support 42 Mbps using DC-HSPA By end 2010, GSA expects that around 95 HSPA+ systems will be in commercial service www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA+ network commitments and deployments – June 9, 2010 Slide no. 2/10

  4. 4. HSPA+ has a strong evolution path HSPA is an evolution of 3G/WCDMA. The first commercial HSPA system was launched in October 2005. The maximum theoretical peak downlink speed of HSPA systems is 14.4 Mbps. HSPA Evolution (HSPA+) extends the performance as shown in the chart. Most HSPA+ networks are capable of supporting 21 Mbps peak downlink data throughput. However already in 2010 there are number of networks supporting or being prepared for 42 Mbps peak downlink capabilities. This performance is currently achieved by combining 64QAM modulation and double 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 the 3GPP Release 8 standard. Release 8 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. 3GPP Release 9 combines multicarrier and MIMO technologies in 10 MHz bandwidth to reach 84 Mbps peak downlink. Using multicarrier on the uplink doubles the peak data rate to 23 Mbps. Standardization beyond Release 9 may extend multicarrier to 20 MHz bandwidth and utilize combinations of multicarrier and MIMO to reach downlink data speeds exceeding 100 Mbps. www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2010 Global HSPA+ network commitments and deployments – June 9, 2010 Slide no. 4/10
