Ericsson to demo 42Mbps

Ericsson on Wednesday announced it will perform the first demonstration of the second implementation of its HSPA+ multi-carrier technology that allows for maximum download rates of 42Mbps at the Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona, Spain. The multi-carrier technology lets users receive data on two frequency channels at the same time, thereby doubling the user data rate in HSPA network coverage areas. Australia's Telstra, Ericsson's partner, uses an early HSPA+ network that allows for up to 21Mbps downloads.

The demo will use an Ericsson Mobile Broadband Router which will be shown as a viable alternative to a home wireless network using landline services. It will allow multiple users to take advantage of the 42Mbps broadband speeds. The HSPA+ multi-carrier technology will be ready for a commercial launch before 2010.

AT&T is expecting to bring HSPA+ with the 21Mbps download speeds to the US later this year.
