Nortel Demos HSDPA

A quiver in Nortel’s technology portfolio is HSDPA – otherwise known as 3.5G – which is used to make wireless networks even faster. Nortel is particularly stoked about HSDPA because its wireless business, which accounts for a majority of sales, badly needs a jump-start to catch up with rivals such as Ericsson and Nokia. Earlier this week, Nortel said it has completed a demo with Belgium-based Option NV of high-speed data card calls that achieved transmission rates of 3.6Mbps. The question facing HSDPA is whether it will or Wi-Max will be accepted as the next-generation technology for high-speed wireless networks.
