Japan's EMOBILE Upgrades to 42Mbps HSDPA with Ericsson

Japan's EMOBILE is upgrading its mobile broadband network based on Ericsson's HSPA Evolution to enable peak data rates of 42 Mbps. The full launch of the network will take place by the end of the year. Ericsson is supplying 42Mbps HSPA Evolution functionality to Japan's metropolitan areas, such as Tokyo, Tokai and Osaka.

Eric Gan, President of EMOBILE said: "Deploying the first 42Mbps dual cell HSDPA (DC-HSPA) network in Japan is an important milestone for EMOBILE. Ericsson's DC-HSPA technology provides EMOBILE with a cost effective way to secure the fastest level, most advanced mobile broadband network in the country and gives our customers a true mobile broadband experience."

  • EMOBILE launched 21 Mbps HSPA+ service in September 2009.
