Ericsson Predicts Mass Market for HSDPA in 2006

Ericsson is predicting mass market deployments of HSDPA in 2006, driven by consumer demand for mobile broadband and mobile operators' need to extend their business offering.

"We foresee a mass market with HSDPA implemented in 2006," said Mikael B├Ąck, vice president WCDMA radio networks today at 3GSM World Congress in Cannes. "Already at the end of this year, we expect HSDPA to have been launched for commercial use."

Ericsson believes that the first terminals for HSDPA will be PC cards supporting up to 3.6 Mbps. Sony Ericsson plans to have products for trial later this year. Ericsson also expects to see HSDPA integrated in laptops in 2007.
