Ericsson and Rogers to trial 3G/HSDPA and IMS platform in Canada
Posted: 14-Oct-2005 [Source: Ericsson]

[Rogers Communications in Canada and Ericsson announce a trial of 3G/HSDPA wireless services and applications as well as converged IP MUltimedia Subsystem (IMS). ]

Ericsson and Rogers Communications Inc. announced they will begin a trial of 3G/HSDPA wireless services and applications, as well as converged IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). During the trial, Rogers and Ericsson will assess the capabilities of two key 3G technologies:

UMTS-HSDPA (Universal Mobile Telephone System - High Speed Downlink Packet Access) is the current state-of-the-art 3G network technology based on the world standard for wireless communications - GSM - and is a natural progression for Rogers' existing national GSM-GPRS-EDGE network that reaches 93% of the Canadian population. UMTS has already been widely deployed in markets throughout the world. HSDPA is an upgrade to UMTS that provides the fastest data rates of any 3G technology and is expected to launch commercially in 2006.

IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) is an IP-based service creation environment that will enable Rogers to efficiently introduce new multimedia voice, data, audio and video services (Quadruple Play) across its multiple networks (including mobile wireless, Cable and DSL and Fixed Wireless). IMS represents a very significant opportunity to bring the various Rogers networks into a single service environment that can be presented in an easy to use manner to Rogers' customers.

UMTS-HSDPA promises to provide customers with significantly higher data speeds (evolving to peak down-link speeds of 14 megabits per second), while IMS will enable new cross-platform applications, such as IP Centrex with Mobile Extension, Presence Management (across Cable, Wireless and Wireline), and Rogers Personal TV with mobile extension, as well as a new service creation environment to speed the development of new applications in the market.
