Sunday 4 July 2004 00:59 CET | News

Ericsson has achieved world record peak data speed - 235.6 kbit/s across the radio interface - on T-Mobiles EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution) network in Hungary. Performance, functionality and download capacity of the network was measured for two weeks in Budapest. T-Mobile Hungary and Ericsson successfully demonstrated the high-speed mobile data possibilities with EDGE technology. The aim of the application level measurements was to assess the robustness and outstanding performance of EDGE delivered by Ericsson in a live radio environment. The measurements were performed according to the Ericsson test description for active GPRS/EDGE end-to-end performance testing at pre-selected measurement locations. EDGE service has been commercially available in T-Mobiles network in Hungary since November, 2003. In addition to the world record of 235.6 kbit/s peak download speed the test also proved that EDGE benefits from T-Mobiles well-planned and optimized radio network. However, the current commercially available network configuration of T-Mobile Hungary supports only 100 kbit/s peak data rates. EDGE is a natural complement to 3G WCDMA technology providing high-speed mobile data services in rural as well as urban areas.
