Mobile Data Services Leading the Future
Global mobile data has nearly tripled in the last year, growing more than 10 times faster than voice.
Total data traffic volume in 2015 will be more than 30 times that of 2010. Operators will need to
make capital investments to increase capacity in order to meet this demand

Operators choice and progress on HSPA+ Road
100% WCDMA operators have launched HSPA.
Almost 50% of HSPA operators have launched HSPA+.
Operators are primarily interested in 64QAM, followed by DC-HSPA and then MIMO-related enhancements.
Operators also paid lots of interests in PS service enhancement such as CPC features.
Operators generally cautious about using HSPA+ for voice services.

2x2 MIMO Principle
MIMO(Multi Input Multi Output) uses multiple antennas respectively at the transmitting end and receiving
end to speed up downlink date bit rate, decrease BER and improve QoS.
Two streams (two transmission block) are transmitted simultaneously in 2ms through two antennas, getting
spatial diversity gain, improve the peak rate and data throughput.

UL 64QAM+MIMO Introduction
64QAM in HSUPA is dual-8PAM, where two I/Q multiplexed
amplitude modulated signal will form the waveform just like
64QAM.
64QAM can only exist when transmitting with 2xSF2+2xSF4.
UL MIMO is similar with DL MIMO, the differences are:
New Channels:
S-E-DPCCH (Secondary E-DPCCH)
S-E-DPDCH(Secondary E-DPDCH)
S-DPCCH(Secondary Dedicated Physical Control Channel)
NodeB feedbacks to UE by TPI of F-TPICH, UE will decide dual-

UL TxD Introduction
Uplink Tx Diversity for HSPA is to improve the uplink coverage with transmit diversity.

Transmission from 1 Tx antenna (e.g. switched antenna Tx diversity)
Simultaneous transmission from 2 Tx antennas (e.g. transmit beamforming)

Improve the coverage then to Increases the throughput
Reduce UE transmit power

Works with E-DCH and/or DCH, but not RACH
New channel S-DPCCH is introduced in the uplink
New channel F-TPICH(Fractional Transmitted Precoding
Indicator Channel) is introduced in the downlink to
bear PCI feedback

HSPA+ will be deployed firstly in areas where there are heavy data service requirement including capacity and
user experience enhancement, including indoor areas such as office building, public stadium, airport, government
office and high level residential area, and outdoor hotspots such as CBD, public marketplace, scenic spots and
schools.
Secondly urban and some import transport line
such as highway and high-railway.
Finally whole network coverage will be reached.

Deploy Strategy Based on Areas
Deploy Strategy Based on Frequency
Scenario 1:
Single carrier, all cells or partial cells may support R99/HSPA/HSPA+ (64QAM) services
It is always first step for HSPA+ deployment


Scenario 2
Another new carrier is introduced to support HSPA/HSPA+ (64QAM)
It is always adopted in CBD, indoor stadium where exist heavy data traffic.


Scenario 3
Both the existing and another new carrier are upgraded to support HSPA/HSPA+(64QAM)
It is always adopted when operators planned network expansion and HSPA+ capability upgrade together

scheduler for each new transmission interval
according to UE capability and radio condition.

keep the same as HSDPA.
For sites need to provide DL peak rate
experience, suggest to extend the

Deploy Strategy Based on Frequency
Scenario 1:
Upgrade the existing part of cells (or all cells) to support R99/HSPA/HSPA+ (MIMO) while the others still support
R99/HSPA.
This scenario always happens in MIMO pre-commercial period or MIMO initial stage
Scenario 2 :
One dedicated MIMO carrier is introduced to support HSPA/HSPA+ (MIMO).
This scenario always happens in hotspots such as CBD, in-building Stadium with high data traffic requirement.
Scenario 3 :
One dedicated MIMO carrier is introduced to support HSPA+(MIMO) only.
This scenario always happens when MIMO is mature and there are a lot of MIMO terminals in industry.

STTD Impact on Legacy UE (*Source: Vodafone Group)
MIMO apply STTD mode, while the legacy
UE (non MIMO UE) can not activate EQ in
STTD mode.
Throughput of Legacy UE under good or
medium channel condition will drop down
by around 30~40% in STTD mode.

good CQI, so the users could get gain in the center of the
cell, but almost no gain at the cell edge, or even have a
negative gain
With the user number increase in the same cell, the gain
gradually decreases

DC HSUPA Performance Analysis(Simulation Report)
DC-HSUPA Simulation Conclusion
DC-HSUPA could enhance the whole cell capacity .
With the increase of user number, the station spacing, DC-HSUPA
gain against HSUPA would decreases.
When the station spacing is large, the transfer power of users at
the cell edge users will be insufficient so to affect the throughput
of DC-HSUPA, even get negative gain.
