Swedish telecomms solutions provider Ericsson said on Tuesday (29 November) that its HSDPA solution is now in operation in 15 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America. In all these 15 countries the solution is live on commercial hardware and software, providing data speeds up to 3.6Mb/s in the downlink. "We have received positive reactions from our customers to the opportunity to explore the mobile broadband possibilities of HSDPA at an early stage. There are now 15 live HSDPA systems, with ongoing evaluations of applications. This strengthens my belief that we will see many successful HSDPA launches during 2006, based on our solution," said Carl-Henric Svanberg, CEO of Ericsson.
