Chinese telecoms vendor Huawei and Germany’s Rohde & Schwarz said that they had achieved HSPA speeds of up to 84Mbps during recent trials.

Huawei’s subsidiary HiSilicon and Rohde & Schwarz said during Mobile World Congress that they had demonstrated HSPA speeds of 84 Mbps WCDMA signals in downlink and 23Mbps in uplink transmission.

The two companies are working together on HiSilicon's LTE multi-mode chipset solution, Balong 710, and Rohde & Schwarz's flexible R&S CMW500 multi-standard conformance test platform. The aim of the two collaboration projects is to enable the wireless industry to certify and deploy LTE/WCDMA technology successfully and more quickly.

Ai Wei, VP of HiSilicon, said that Balong 710 was proving to be a “great step forward” for LTE and WCDMA. “There is a great deal of talk in the industry about accelerating LTE roadmaps, but in reality there are very few players with a commercially viable LTE multi-mode chipset solution and HiSilicon is one of these companies,” he said.

“Similarly, Rohde & Schwarz was the first supplier on the market with test solutions for LTE, WCDMA and GSM. We are delighted to be working with them on the ongoing development of their comprehensive test case package which meets the industry's needs for thorough LTE/WCDMA/GSM device testing programs.”
