Sprint Unveils High Performance User Equipment (HPUE)
      #49758 - 12/13/16 08:28 PM

Sprint today unveiled High Performance User Equipment (HPUE), a breakthrough innovation designed to optimize its 2.5 GHz network coverage and further unlock the company's spectrum advantage to give Sprint customers better coverage and faster data speeds in more locations. At an event today in New York City, Sprint demonstrated the advanced new technology which is capable of extending its 2.5 GHz coverage by up to 30 percent to nearly match its mid-band 1.9 GHz spectrum performance, including indoors where an estimated 60 to 70 percent of wireless traffic is generated.



Certified by 3GPP on December 6, 2016, HPUE is a new power class - Power Class 2 - for end-user devices such as smartphones, and is designed to improve the performance of TDD-LTE Band 41 networks around the world. As part of its continuous efforts to enhance the network for its more than 60 million customers, Sprint co-led the development of HPUE in conjunction with the Global TDD LTE Initiative (GTI) and companies such as China Mobile, SoftBank, Qualcomm Technologies Inc., Samsung, ZTE, Broadcom, MediaTek, Skyworks Solutions, Alcatel, Motorola, LG and Qorvo.

Sprint's network is ready for the initial roll-out of HPUE, including in its 250 LTE Plus markets. Samsung, one of Sprint's most important ecosystem partners, is expected to support HPUE in devices slated for commercial launch in 2017.

Unleashing Sprint's High-Band Spectrum Advantage

The development of HPUE is part of Sprint's ongoing program to improve its network through its Densification and Optimization strategy using some of the most advanced technologies in wireless. With more than 160 MHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum in the top 100 U.S. markets, Sprint has more spectrum than any other U.S. carrier, an advantage that HPUE is designed to maximize.

Looking ahead, Sprint will continue its deployment of three-channel carrier aggregation on 2.5 GHz sites. The company also anticipates leveraging a multitude of advanced technologies including multiple carrier aggregation, 256 QAM, 4x4 MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) and Massive MIMO to further enhance the capacity and coverage of its 2.5 GHz TDD-LTE spectrum.
