Lucent Unveils its High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA)

Lucent Technologies unveiled its high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) solution, a software upgrade to Lucent base stations for enabling 3G UMTS services .Lucent's end-to-end solution currently supports data speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps. Future upgrades of HSDPA will provide theoretical maximum peak data speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. The technology also allows operators to maximize available spectrum. For example, the HSDPA will enable operators to support up to six times more users than UMTS in the same spectrum - at substantially higher average data rates. Lucent said HSDPA also lays the groundwork for operators to introduce VoIP and more advanced multimedia services on their mobile networks.

Cingular Wireless is including Lucent's HSDPA solution in its nationwide UMTS deployment.
