Vodafone Demonstrates the Future Generation of Mobile Communications at CeBIT: UMTS Broadband with Speeds of up to 10 MBit per second PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 23 February 2006

Vodafone will be giving a glimpse into the future of the mobile communications market at CeBIT in Hanover. Titled 'Future Technologies', Vodafone demonstrates mobile data transfer rates of up to 10 Mbit per second via UMTS broadband. A special non-commercial demo system has been set up in Hanover. The fast data transfer speeds are enabled by High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology. Vodafone is once again underlining its market leadership in the mobile high-speed data transfer market.

The Vodafone demo system for CeBIT enables fast data downloads of up to 10 Mbit per second. Vodafone impressively demonstrates that we are nowhere near reaching the technological limits in mobile communications.

UMTS broadband is being deployed at 1.8Mbit/s which will at commercial launch offer peak transfer rates for customers of around 1.4 Mbit/s in downlink mode. This will offer mobile users the very first opportunity to experience the current standard DSL rate. The data transfer rates of this new technology will gradually be increased.

Vodafone has its own pavilion in CeBIT's G04 open-air zone to the south of Hall 25.
