Huawei Deploys HSUPA Commercial Wireless Network for StarHub in Singapore

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Huawei (News - Alert) has successfully deployed what it claims is Asia Pacific’s first High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) commercial network for StarHub, one of Singapore's major info-communications companies.

The contract for expanding StarHub's 3G network to high-speed packet access (HSPA) was awarded to Huawei in February 2007. The expansion involved the installation of more than 1,000 next generation Distributed Node B base stations across the island state.
Huawei said that its Node B solution features small, light weight and easy to install units with the ability to significantly reduce an operator's operating expenditure. During the project deployment phase Huawei engineers installed about 100 of these nodes each week.
StarHub has commercially launched its nationwide mobile broadband network and can now deliver a better user experience over existing 3G and HSPA (both HSDPA and HSUPA) offerings. Boasting local access of up to 7.2Mbps downstream and up to 1.9Mbps upstream, these specifications claim to exceed current 3G mobile broadband speeds of up to 384Kbps, as well as other offerings in the Singapore market.
David Storrie, head of StarHub's network and wholesale services division, said that Huawei has enabled the company to deliver a customized HSPA service to its customers quickly and efficiently. StarHub hopes to maintain the close relationship with Huawei as the mobile network enhancements continue.
StarHub is now retailing Huawei's E270 USB 3.5G Modem in Singapore. The device can fully realize the potential of high speed mobile data access experience, anytime and anywhere. The multi-mode E270 supports HSUPA/HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GSMS, with downlink speed of up to 7.2 Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 1.9Mbps.
“We are indeed pleased to help StarHub deliver world-class mobile broadband services in Singapore with the successful deployment of our innovative, field-proven HSPA technologies,” said Hou Jinlong, vice president of Huawei’ wireless network product line division, in a statement.
“Huawei's leading Distributed Node B base stations and IP RAN solutions enable fast deployment and evolution towards ALL IP,” he added.
