NSN HSPA+ Multiflow – Lets One Device Connect to Two BTS Simultaneously

By February 21st, 2012 AT 3:03 PM

Nokia Siemens Networks and Qualcomm introduces the world’s first “HSPA+ (4G) Multiflow” which may offer Data Rates Upto 600 Mbps and also provide some relief from depressed data network connectivity while on move.

Known as HSPA+ Multiflow, it allows devices located close to the edge of a mobile base station’s cell to connect with a second /another base station serving a neighboring cell. The ‘Multiflow’ name refers to the two different paths data can then take to reach a device.

The feature makes far more efficient use of network resources, delivering up to double the data speed up to 600 Mbps and up to 50% faster response compared to existing HSPA+ 4G networks.

100 million smart devices being added every month and the consequent increase in ‘smart’ applications are leading to the increase in unpredictable data traffic. There is a need for operators to look at how they can tackle this traffic growth, by using network resources efficiently to deliver a better mobile broadband experience.

The HSPA+ Multiflow feature is expected to be 3GPP standardized by mid 2012, and will be available commercially from Nokia Siemens Networks by second half of 2013.
