1 Feb 2012

Hong Kong’s PCCW Mobile and Chinese vendor Huawei have trialled an upgrade to PCCW’s network based on MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) and Dual Carrier HSPA+ (DC-HSPA+) with a peak downlink data rate of 84Mbps, which the partners claim would be the world’s fastest commercial HSPA-based deployment. Huawei has provided PCCW with an end-to-end 84Mbps HSPA+ network including a radio access network, a core network, and new devices. Huawei has already deployed 25 commercial networks around the globe supporting 42Mbps DC-HSPA+.
