Wi-Fi and HSPA combined

Tuesday, 21 April, 2009


Huawei Technologies has announced  it has developed the EM772, claimed to be the world’s first module to integrate two network standards, Wi-Fi and HSPA, for school PCs and laptops. By leveraging the  Wi-Fi/HSPA integration capability and small size of the EM772, manufacturers will be able to reduce the size of the mobile computing devices, but also significantly reduce the cost of producing them.

Peter Rossi, Chief Technology Officer for Huawei in Australia, said, “The EM772, with its integration of Wi-Fi and HSPA capabilities, will greatly improve connectivity and allow students using Classmate PCs throughout the developing world to easily go online, anywhere, anytime. Huawei is proud to be spearheading wireless developments that are improving education standards globally.”

“We are confident that the new-generation EM772 will enhance the computer experience. Innovation continues to be the basic tenet of Huawei’s growth strategy, and will allow us to tap the opportunities presented by the fast-growing laptop market,” said James Chen, Director of Marketing Department, Huawei Terminals.

Hawk Min, Hardware Engineering Team Director of Intel Emerging Market Platforms Group, added, “The module’s small packaging size will also fit well into the thin and light netbook and notebook designs, which are a mobile trend in 2009.”

With a maximum uplink rate of 5.76 Mbps and downlink rate of 7.2 Mbps in the HSPA network environment, the EM772 will enable users to download a standard MP3 tune in less than one second. In a Wi-Fi environment, access rates can reach a maximum of 54 Mbps, supporting the download of a high-definition movie in around one minute.
