Evolved HSPA

Evolved HSPA
HSPA+, or Evolved High-Speed Packet Access, is a technical standard for wireless, broadband
telecommunication. HSPA+ enhances the widely used WCDMA (UMTS) based 3G networks with higher speeds for
the end user that are comparable to the newer LTE networks. HSPA+ was first defined in the technical standard
3GPP release 7 and expanded further in later releases.
In the United States, it is commonly available under AT&T Mobility and T-Mobile US.

Speeds
HSPA+ provides an evolution of High Speed Packet Access and provides data rates up to 168Megabits per second
(Mbit/s) to the mobile device (downlink) and 22Mbit/s from the mobile device (uplink). Technically these are
achieved through the use of a multiple-antenna technique known as MIMO (for "multiple-input and
multiple-output") and higher order modulation (64QAM) or combining multiple cells into one with a technique
known as Dual-Cell HSDPA.
The 168Mbit/s and 22Mbit/s represent theoretical peak speeds. The actual speed for a user will be lower. In general,
HSPA+ offer higher bitrates only in very good radio conditions (very close to cell tower) or if the terminal and
network both support either MIMO or Dual-Cell HSDPA, which effectively use two parallel transmit channels with
different technical implementations.
The higher 168Mbps speeds are achieved by using multiple carriers with Dual-Cell HSDPA and 4-way MIMO
together simultaneously.[1][2]
The technology also delivers significant battery life improvements and dramatically quicker wake-from-idle time
delivering a true always-on connection. HSPA+ should not be confused with LTE, which uses a new air interface
based on OFDMA technology. HSPA+ is an evolution of HSPA that upgrades the existing 3G network and provides
a method for telecom operators to migrate towards 4G speeds without deploying a new radio interface. [3]

All-IP architecture
A flattened all-IP architecture is an option for the network within HSPA+. In this architecture, the base stations
connect to the network via IP (often Ethernet providing the transmission) bypassing legacy elements for the user's
data connections. This makes the network faster and cheaper to deploy and operate. The legacy architecture is still
permitted with the Evolved HSPA and is likely to exist for several years after adoption of the other aspects of
HSPA+ (higher modulation, multiple streams etc.).
This 'flat architecture' connects the 'user plane' directly from the base station to the GGSN external gateway, using
any available link technology supporting TCP/IP. The definition can be found in 3GPP TR25.999 [4]. The user's data
flow bypasses the Radio Network Controller (RNC) and the SGSN of the previous 3GPP UMTS architecture
versions thus simplifying the architecture, reducing costs and delays. This is nearly identical to the 3GPP Long Term
Evolution (LTE) flat architecture as defined in the 3GPP standard Rel-8. The changes allow cost effective modern
link layer technologies such as xDSL or Ethernet and is no longer tied to the more expensive and rigid requirements
of the older standard of SONET/SDH and E1/T1 infrastructure.
There are no changes to the 'control plane'.
Nokia Siemens Networks Internet HSPA or I-HSPA is the first commercial solution implementing the Evolved
HSPA flattened all-IP architecture.[5]
