BRISTOL, U.K. -- Icera has today announced availability of its first Adaptive Wireless™ HSDPA Datacard Platform, which is enabling cellular datacard vendors to be first to market with next generation 3GPP Release 5 multimode HSDPA products. The platform supports Adaptive Wireless™ software delivering peak data-rates of 3.6Mbps and is fully scalable to 7.2Mbps and HSUPA – without hardware change.

Stan Boland, President & CEO of Icera said: “The availability of HSDPA terminals is probably the most pressing requirement for all global operators today and our first announced platform fully meets their requirements and will scale to meet their future upgrades. Supporting 3.6Mbps user data rates, our Adaptive Wireless™ advanced receiver and diversity software capability will deliver dramatically improved user data rates and network capacity over early 1.8Mbps prototype solutions.”

Commenting on the announcement, Michael Thelander, Principal Analyst at Signals Research Group, LLC, an independent research consultancy, and author of the Signals Ahead research newsletter, said: “3G operators are placing a very high premium on HSDPA and HSUPA, which we believe will drive the widespread adoption of these technologies even more so than we first envisioned. Within four years, HSDPA could represent more than 70% of the entire 3G market, and account for over 200M devices.” He further added, “with a fully-functional 3.6Mbps platform available today that features a software-only upgrade to 7.2Mbps, Icera is positioning itself to be a leading supplier of HSDPA. In this market, Icera is definitely a company to watch.”
