Difference between HSDPA and HSUPAWe all heard about HSDPA nad HSUPA technology in 3G Mobiles.But most of them didn't understand what itt means or what is the main difference between HSDPA and HSUPA.Here we can try to reduce our doubts...
- In the downlink, the shared resource is transmission power and the code space, both of which are located in one central node, the NodeB. In the uplink, the shared resource is the amount of allowed uplink interference, which depends on the transmission power of multiple distributed nodes, the UEs.
- The scheduler and the transmission buffers are located in the same node in the downlink, while in the uplink the scheduler is located in the NodeB while the data buffers are distributed in the UEs. Hence, the UEs need to signal buffer status information to the scheduler.
- The WCDMA uplink, also with Enhanced Uplink, is inherently non-orthogonal, and subject to interference between uplink transmissions within the same cell. This is in contrast to the downlink, where different transmitted channels are orthogonal. Fast power control is therefore essential for the uplink to handle the near-far problem. The E-DCH is transmitted with a power offset relative to the power-controlled uplink control channel and by adjusting the maximum allowed power offset, the scheduler can control the E-DCH data rate. This is in contrast to HSDPA, where a (more or less) constant transmission power with rate adaptation is used.
- Soft handover is supported by the E-DCH. Receiving data from a terminal in multiple cells is fundamentally beneficial as it provides diversity, while transmission from multiple cells in case of HSDPA is cumbersome and with questionable benefits as discussed in the previous chapter. Soft handover also implies power control by multiple cells, which is necessary to limit the amount of interference generated in neighbouring cells and to maintain backward compatibility and coexistence with UE not using the E-DCH for data transmission.
- In the downlink, higher-order modulation, which trades power efficiency for bandwidth efficiency, is useful to provide high data rates in some situations, for example when the scheduler has assigned a small number of channelization codes for a transmission but the amount of available transmission power is relatively high. The situation in the uplink is different; there is no need to share channelization codes between users and the channel coding rates are therefore typically lower than for the downlink. Hence, unlike the downlink, higher order modulation is less useful in the uplink macro-cells and therefore not part of the first release of enhanced uplink.Shoot your doubts below on the commenting section..

Vodafone 3G Webpage Goes Live from Friday
Vodafone Essar has launched a dedicated 3G page on its website that will address subscribers' queries and concerns regarding this third generation network.
The telecom operator had won 3G spectrum in ten circles of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh (E) and West Bengal. It plans to roll out services in the first half of 2011.This is a good news for all Vodafone users in India.The 3G page on its website gives an overview of what this technology is and what it can do. It also answers FAQs related to 3G and has a section where subscribers can register for 3G services. The page also enables mobile phone users to check whether their device is compatible with 3G.
Vodafone isn't the first operator to create a 3G webpage. Tata Docomo had unveiled a website called 3glife.com, which is dedicated to informing consumers about the benefits of 3G. The home page features a global 3G live stream that captures everything being said about 3G on the internet. Integrated across Twitter, Facebook, thousands of blogs, forums and news sites, it provides a real time conversation cloud around 3G.
Aircel 3G-Aircel Mobile VAS-Aircel 3G Chennai

Tata Docomo became the first private operator to launch 3G services in India with slogan ’3G Life’ but as a surprise the their plans and tariff is quite higher than expected for the experts. Their 3G services are charged at 5 paise per second for normal calls and 0.66 paise for video calls. When compared with BSNL 3G tariff plans the Docomo 3G is quite costly and why shouldn’t it be since they have paid so much for gaining the access to 3G PAN India license.
All the 3G provider as of now have unlimited plans but they are not that straight forward plans for you. A prolific daily downloader of movies and games might not find it worthy and would prefer the normal optical wired or wireless broadband. Lets take a look at what all the 3 providers have in their 3G unlimited broadband plans.
BSNL did reduction in their 3G prices as that of announced just before the 3G launch by Tata Docomo to ensure that BSNL 3G still in the race. Also they introduced a 7 days free data download for the new customers which is striking news.
With BSNL you get unlimited access to Internet through 3G under their data plans which is charged at Rs 700 per month. Starting this November they have good plans for both postpaid and prepaid customers.
The following are the plans for unlimited data access to through Modem
- Rs 2000 with a validity of 60 days
- Rs 2500 with a validity of 90 days
- Rs 4200 with a validity of 180 days
Also they have slashed the prices of data card.So we can easily conclude that BSNL 3G is better than DoCoMo 3G
BSNL had setup 3G experience centers where we can see the live demo and experience the power of 3G.

Bharti Airtel has chosen Ericsson India, Nokia Siemens Networks and Huawei Technologies as network partners to launch 3G services in India.These partners will plan, design, deploy and maintain a state-of-the-art 3G HSPA Network in Bharti Airtel 3G license circles. This deployment would enable Bharti Airtel extend its leadership position in the Indian market and meet the growing demand for high speed surfing and wireless entertainment in the country.
Bharti has awarded Ericsson, which is already its 2G partner, a majority of the 3G licenses, expanding the relationship. Nokia Siemens would handle Bharti's 3G networks across three circles in India while Huawei will handle 3G services for Bharti in a few other circles.
Bharti's 3G services which would be HSPA-enabled would ensure high peak user throughputs, multiple-times higher than those supported in current 3G networks said the company on Monday.
Bharti's 3G network will also support world class user data speeds and enhanced mobile broad band user experience.
