Ericsson Expands WCDMA Portfolio

Ericsson is expanding its WCDMA portfolio into the frequency bands of 850MHz, 1800MHz (1700MHz for Japan) and 1.7/2.1GHz for the USA. 850MHz will be available this year, while the others will be ready by the middle of 2006. To enhance capacity and coverage potential in the future, Ericsson's WCDMA solutions will also support the 900MHz and 2.5GHz frequency bands.

Ericsson said the availability of wider support for frequency bands will lead to a larger deployment of WCDMA, so operators will benefit from the large economies of scale of equipment deployments. http://www.ericsson.com
