Nortel and Qualcomm together completed an industry leading 7.2 Mbps data call over HSDPA. HSDPA is the 3G technology that Cingular Wireless is currently upgrading its network to.

The companies completed the initial series of pre-commercial category 8 HSDPA data calls using test terminals based on QUALCOMM's Mobile Station Modem MSM6280 solution and HSDPA network equipment from Nortel.

The two companies will be demoing the technology at CTIA 2006 which takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada next week.
