Huawei powered PCCW-HKT achieves record MIMO, DC-HSPA + connection
TT Correspondent |  |  31 Jan 2012

Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, and PCCW-HKT, Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications operator, on Tuesday said that the two companies achieved the world’s fastest MIMO (multi-input multi-output) and Dual Carrier HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) connection.


The success of this trial - which reached a peak downlink data rate of 84Mb/s, the fastest ever experienced by 3G end-users - demonstrates that MIMO and Dual Carrier HSPA+ technology is ready for commercial deployment.


Driven by the rapid growth of mobile broadband, operators have made it a priority to provide users with a better service experience, including higher speed and lower latency. Huawei’s HSPA+ solution benefits operators by improving spectrum utilization and efficiency by up to 20% and doubling user data rates across the coverage area. The end user also benefits through an enhanced mobile broadband experience, especially for accessing cloud services, real-time interactive network gaming, video conferencing, and file sharing.


“Achieving higher speeds is a constant pursuit for customers and their subscribers. As a customer-centric company, Huawei is dedicated to developing innovative technology and cost-effective solutions and services. We strive to deliver the latest in commercially available mobile broadband technology and user devices”, said Wang Tao, President of Wireless Network, Huawei.


Huawei provided PCCW-HKT with an end-to-end 84Mb/s HSPA+ network, including a radio access network, a core network, and new devices. Huawei’s industry-leading SingleRAN solution enabled PCCW-HKT to build a multi-layer mobile broadband network across Hong Kong, increase network capacity, enhance user experience, and lower the total cost of ownership.


As a leader in providing mobile broadband solutions, Huawei is the world’s first vendor to provide end-to-end commercial MIMO and Dual Carrier HSPA+ solutions for mobile broadband operators for both systems and devices. Huawei’s HSPA+ solution follows 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) Release 9 standards, combines higher order modulation schemes (64QAM), MIMO, and dual cell transmission. To date, Huawei has deployed 76 HSPA+ commercial networks, of which 25 commercial networks support 42 Mb/s Dual Carrier HSPA+, and ranks first in commercial HSPA+ market share.
