Swedish telecomms solutions provider Ericsson said on Friday (4 November) that it had successfully upgraded Vodafone K.K.'s commercial network in central parts of Tokyo to support High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). The software and hardware in the HSDPA-enabled base stations supports downlink bit-rates up to 3.6 Mb/s and uplink rates up to 384 Kb/s. However, this capability has not been enabled for Vodafone K.K. customers at this time. Ericsson said that the hardware and software upgrades of the first commercial network sites represents a major milestone in the programme to offer HSDPA.
