Huawei Sets the Record for GSM/EDGE Network Data Rate Speeds Huawei Sets the Record for GSM/EDGE Network Data Rate SpeedsHuawei Sets the Record for GSM/EDGE Network Data Rate Speeds

12 January 2010

[Shanghai, China, 12 January, 2010] Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has set a new data rate record, averaging up to 564 Kb/s, in a recent downlink dual carrier (DLDC) test for Enhanced Data Rate for GSM Evolution (EDGE). This record speed, which is two times faster than that of existing EDGE networks, enables operators to cost-effectively increase network data capacity and bring 3G experiences to 2G users over GSM networks, such as high-speed mobile data services including live video broadcast and video on demand (VOD).

Advancing EDGE technology significantly improves user experience through faster data rates, better quality of service (QoS) and lower network latency. Huawei' s innovative EDGE+ solution enables GSM operators to quickly, smoothly and cost-effectively migrate their existing EDGE network to EDGE+ through simple software upgrades and supports smooth future evolution to 3G and beyond.

He Gang, president of GSM/UMTS product line for Huawei commented: "This milestone demonstrates Huawei' s continued commitment towards driving GSM evolution, the world' s most widely deployed technical standard with the largest mobile subscriber base. Huawei' s advanced EDGE+ technology enhances flexibility for operators building their 3G networks and provides a seamless high-speed data service experience."

Using the existing GSM frequency bands, Huawei' s EDGE+ can provide seamless high-speed mobile data service coverage and is one of the first-stage 3G networks that makes it possible for mobile phones to receive real-time streaming media from the Internet with lower latency. EDGE+ can bridge high-speed mobile broadband services on HSPA+/LTE networks and GSM data services to ensure the continuity and availability of mobile data services. EDGE+ best protects the 2G OPEX of operators and increases the average revenue per user (ARPU) of 2G networks.
