Swedish telecomms solutions provider Ericsson said on Wednesday (30 November) that it was demonstrating, together with MTN South Africa, how 3G networks using WCDMA technology enable new mobile broadband services as well as a cost efficient fixed broadband alternative, when combining HSDPA and Fixed Wireless Terminals. Fixed Wireless Terminals is a solution for providing voice and high-speed data services using widely deployed mobile networks such as WCDMA, according to the company. HSDPA is new technology used on 3G networks enabling true broadband data rates, Ericsson added. Combining Fixed Wireless Terminals with HSDPA makes it possible for MTN to offer a cost efficient wireless alternative to ADSL for delivering broadband data services to the residential market.
