The future of WCDMA/HSPA - delivering exceptional MBB user experience everywhere

Feb 22, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- WCDMA/HSPA enables hundreds of millions of people to access mobile broadband (MBB) through their smartphones every day as part of their daily lives. Today, new, low-priced WCDMA/HSPA smartphones are entering the market, and they will enable MBB for new hundreds-of-million-sized markets.

The mobile broadband (MBB) market has reached a turning point and is about to enter a phase of massive growth that is forecast to see subscriber numbers more than quadruple from 1.5 billion at the end of 2012 to about 6.5 billion by the end of 2018.

At the core of this surge in MBB uptake is the arrival of low-cost WCDMA/HSPA smartphones that will do for MBB what affordable GSM phones did for mobile telephony.


At the same time, there is a considerable focus on LTE, due to the high bitrates it provides and the fast pace of its successful rollout programs. Many operators are asking themselves what the right HSPA and LTE mix is for their networks.

Regardless of which technology we use, WCDMA/HSPA or LTE, serving this new MBB mass market demands a network that can deliver the right coverage, capacity, performance and business models on a global scale. WCDMA/HSPA networks are central to meeting these requirements today and -- through their continuing enhancement -- will be for the foreseeable future.
