Comarco Adds HSUPA Testing Support

Comarco has added High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) support to its evolving Symphony range of products.

"The addition of HSUPA support represents another step forward for our Symphony-Multi Platform and for the expanding alliance with our European partner, Ascom," said Mark Chapman, senior vice president and general manager of Comarco. "The Symphony-Multi already supports GSM/EDGE, HSDPA, CDMA1x and EVDO Rev A technologies, amongst others. With the addition of HSUPA, our collective expertise in the measurement of multiple diverse wireless systems now spans all major 3G and advanced air interfaces."

HSUPA currently supports up-link speeds up to 5.76 Mbps, and with speed of up to 11.5 Mbps expected with 3GPP release 7.

Comarco's Symphony supports a growing range of HSUPA data cards including Huawei and Sierra Wireless devices offering up to 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2.0 Mbps HSUPA. The Symphony Multi post-processing system, QVP, has also been upgraded to support HSUPA data. QVP Network Analyzer and QVP Map provide full support for HSUPA functionality and operators can view Ec/Io, RSCP, and scrambling codes of the HSUPA serving and non-serving radio links amongst other parameters. Reports include an IP and FTP throughput summary with measurements grouped according to the radio technology.

Comarco's Symphony Multi can support any combination of test phones, data cards and scanning receivers -- up to a total of 24 devices.
