  • 7. Information Paper HD voice based on the AMR Wideband technology HD voice, based on the AMR (Adaptive Multi Rate) Wideband technology (W-AMR) enables high-quality voice calls in mobile networks and an improved user experience. It provides significantly higher voice quality for calls between mobile phones supporting the feature, and can be implemented in GSM and WCDMA (UMTS) networks. The higher voice quality of HD voice improves the call experience and allows people to better share feelings, do business and communicate information. HD voice can help operators to clearly differentiate their offerings and can enable high quality services to voice dependent business like call center services, information services, emergency services etc. This new information paper outlines the opportunities and benefits of deploying HD voice, provides an update on network deployment commitments to and service launch plans, and confirms which user devices supporting HD voice have been launched.

  • 21. HSPA Evolution (HSPA+) - market reality today - with a strong evolution path Downlink evolution  64QAM instead of 16QAM = 50% improvement  Combining 64QAM and using two carriers (2 x 5 MHz) means 42 Mbps peak DL can be achieved – this is known as DC-HSPA and is market reality today 42 Mbps can also be achieved by combining 2 x 2 MIMO and 64QAM in a single (5 MHz) carrier Uplink evolution Using 16QAM instead of QPSK modulation means doubling uplink rate up to 11.5 Mbps. Using multicarrier on the uplink doubles the peak data rate to 23 Mbps. Further evolution of HSPA utilizes combinations of and MIMO technologies to reach 84 Mbps peak on the downlink, and 23 Mbps peak uplink And further evolution beyond that ……..
