The third-generation WCDMA standard has been enhanced to offer significantly increased performance for packet data and broadcast services through the introduction of high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), enhanced uplink, and multimedia broadcast multicast services (MBMS). This article provides an overview of the key technologies used, the reasons behind their selection, and their integration into WCDMA. Performance results are also included to exemplify the performance possible in an evolved WCDMA network.
