HSUPA Training Overview


HSDPA Training | High Speed Downlink Packet Access Overview Training Course Description

High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) is a packet-based data service in W-CDMA downlink with data transmission up to 8-10 Mbps (and 20 Mbps for MIMO systems) over a 5MHz bandwidth in WCDMA downlink. HSDPA implementations includes Adaptive Modulation and Coding (AMC), Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO), Hybrid Automatic Request (HARQ), fast cell search, and advanced receiver design.

HSDPA is based on W-CDMA evolution and is standardized as an element of the 3GPP Release 5 WCDMA specification, and is in fact the key new feature in this latest release. It is a backward-compatible extension of the basic UMTS Rel’99 specifications that supports voice, mixed voice/data and real-time services, all on a single carrier. It is designed to provide impressive benefits over the basic UMTS standard.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.

This course provides you with a comprehensive business and technical foundation in HSDPA migration paths, services and applications development. It offers an overview of the High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology. HSDPA enhances the packet data services provided in W-CDMA (UMTS) by increasing the data throughput and reducing unwanted delays and it allows carriers to increase downlink throughput over W-CDMA links.
